He represented Canada as the Captain of the rifle team at the games in Bisley, England on 3 occasions in the '60s & '70s, winning at least one of the competitions. He won many other cups all over the Maritimes & at the annual National Rifle Association of Canada games in Ottawa, & always looked forward to seeing his old friends at these events every August. He had his own band in the '30s & there was not an instrument he didn't play. He loved the saxophone & banjo best, & played every evening at home. It was a joy to hear his renditions of his favorite old tunes. He built his own trailer to take on hunting trips, painted his cars with store-bought paint, etc. Bill had a great sense of humour & one story was of bringing home two ducks with one shot - "no use wasting a good bullet!". Another was how he jailed a man overnight for drunk driving. The man was the only Judge in PEI, & he had to be on the Bench at 9:00 am, with Bill in the Courtroom! Bill had a great life. He rests in peace beside his mother, brothers, & other family member in Earl Grey Cemetery. He was often thanked for all the protection he gave to so many, & he told them that it was his privilege to be of service. Bill is missed forever.

SAZYNSKI - Fred passed away peacefully surrounded by family on May 31, 2011, at the age of 83, following a brief but courageous battle with cancer. He was pre-deceased by his wife of 61 years, Ethel; daughter-in-law Darcee; parents Eva and John; sisterís Emma, Anne and Mary; brotherís Peter and Bill. Left to cherish his rich memories are his children, Judy (Lyle) Seed, Fred (Judy Richardson); grandchildren and great-grandchildren Clay (Angie) Kaleb and Lexi; Michael (Candace) and Lily; Laryssa and Zoe; sister Hilda, and several nieces, nephews and extended family. Fred was born on July 14, 1927, in Earl Grey, SK. After a brief stay in Sedley, he and his family settled in Regina Beach when he was a teenager. By age 16, he took his hard working philosophy to the railroad where he helped expand the railway bridge infrastructure across much of southern Saskatchewan. Once his own family was established, he utilized his carpentry skills and ingenuity to build many houses and cottages along the shores of Last Mountain Lake, which are still enjoyed by many families today. During this time, Fred also served as a volunteer firefighter at Regina Beach for 35 years, many of these years as the Fire Chief. He continued his passion for building as opportunities presented themselves, even at age 80, when he showed up ready to help his grandson Clay build his house. Everyone who met Fred soon became captivated by his tall, often embellished stories that seemed to grow in detail with each passing year. His infectious personality and sharp sense of humor made him a pleasure to be around. He was happiest when surrounded by family, especially when the family gatherings included a meal. His insatiable appetite marveled those in attendance which always led to more of his storytelling. From a young age, Fred loved spending time outdoors enjoying mother-nature, especially hunting and fishing. This was something he instilled in his family, especially his grandson Clay, with whom he shared a special bond which developed through countless hours in the fields or on the lake. It was during these outdoor times that Fred shared his poetic talents with his son and grandchildren as he recited an endless collection of poems and limericks. While he loved hunting and fishing, he treasured the social component of these activities the most. It was not uncommon for him to have a handful of people lined up around his ice fishing shack to hear his stories or listen to good natured jokes and comments. Besides hunting, Fred spent many hours feeding and nurturing his beloved squirrels and birds that visited his house every day. Throughout his entire life, Fred was always jovial and never complained, not even after his terminal diagnosis and subsequent treatments. He epitomized the care-free "glass half-full" attitude which inspired everyone he met. Our family wishes to thank all the staff at the Regina Pasqua Hospital, especially those in Unit 3D and Palliative Care for their caring support. At Fred's request, a private memorial will be held.

She was predeceased on December 27, 2007 by Leonard, her husband of sixty-eight years; her parents, William and Clara Kerley, and by three sisters, Lillian Kerley, Irene Lazaruk, and Eva McDougall. Hilda is survived by sisters Mary Stewart, Surrey, BC and Rose Vogle, New Westminster, BC, son Tom Shiels of Burlington, ON; daughter Irene (Gary Tronnes) Linzmayer, Red Deer, AB; son Carl (Margaret) Shiels of Regina, SK; nine grand children; 13 great grand children and many members of her extended family. Hilda was born on March 21, 1913 on a farm near Herbert, SK. Following years of drought, the family moved to a farm south of Earl Grey, SK where Hilda attended Burnside School. During the 1930's, Hilda worked as a domestic in her home community, in Regina and finally in Vancouver. In April of 1939 she returned to Regina to marry Leonard and start her family. In 1944 they moved to a farm of their own north of Craven and remained there until they moved to Regina Village in 1997. As Hilda's physical health deteriorated, she moved to Pioneer Village where she could maintain close, regular contact with her husband. Soon after Leonard's death, Hilda began to lose her remaining will to live and passed away on Friday April 11, 2008. Hilda will be remembered for her enthusiasm for gardening. In the 1950's she began to develop her huge yard with lawns, shrubs, fruit trees and vast beds of flowers. This early start gave her a substantial advantage in local horticultural competitions. It was also a labour of love which she joyously shared with all who came to visit. In later years, this included bus loads of seniors who came from Regina and elsewhere for peaceful picnics. A celebration of Hilda's life will be held later in the summer when the grass is green and the flowers are in full bloom.
