John Lasko passed away unexpectedly at his Cawston residence, on Saturday, December 28, 2013.

John was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, to parents Steve and Josephine. He grew up on a farm not far away near the community of St. Vital, where he also obtained his education.

During an ‘entrepreneurial’ career of fifty-five or so years, John farmed, ranched, and owned and operated the Tastee Freeze in Princeton for 10 years, before selling and retiring to Cawston.

He will be lovingly missed by his family, 1 daughter, Donna (John) Allison of Princeton, 1 granddaughter, Anna-Jean (Peter) Klein of Vancouver, stepchildren; Darren Laine (Kelly) of Maple Ridge, and their children; Scout and Dakota, Sharon (Lynn) Sylvius of Princeton and their children; Ashley

and Tara.

Sadly, John has been predeceased by his parents, all of his 5 brothers and 3 sisters, and his wife Kelly.

Donations may be made to the charity of choice, in John’s memory.
