WOLOSCHUK – Andrew (Andy) Daniel Woloschuk, beloved husband of Fran Woloschuk passed away at his home on September 3, 2022 at Saskatoon, SK at the age of 79. Andy was born on April 29, 1943 to Harry and Anne Woloschuk. He was the fifth eldest of nine siblings. Andy attended Oslon school in the rural municipality of Cana. After completing Grade 8, he left school to work on the family farm. In 1968, Andy was united in marriage to Fran Woloschuk (Varga) in Melville, SK. They were married for 54 years. Andy and Fran were blessed with two children, Shannon in 1969 and Michael in 1970. Andy worked hard on the farm but in 1977, he started working for the City of Melville, commuting into town daily until 1984 when the farm was sold and the family moved into Melville. Andy retired in 2003 but he continued to help his daughter and son-in-law on their farm. Following Andy’s retirement, Andy and Fran moved from Melville to Yorkton where they resided for 16 years until moving to Saskatoon in 2019 to be closer to Shannon and his grandsons. In his spare time and throughout his retirement, Andy was an avid fisherman throughout all the seasons and on a few occasions, he managed to reel in some big ones! He also enjoyed playing cards and tending his vegetable gardens and spending time with his family.
