The family of Blaine Poberznick is heartbroken to announce his passing on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 at the age of 65 years. Blaine is survived by his wife and best friend, Janice; his children, Cale (Lindy) and grandchildren, Remi and Bode Poberznick and Hayley Poberznick (Kevin Fuhrmann); his mother, Clara Poberznick; his sister, Cheryle (Bill) Sangster; one aunt, Vida Hickman; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Blaine was predeceased by his father, Nicholas Poberznick. Blaine was born on September 17th, 1953 in Lethbridge, AB and grew up in Skiff, AB and many good times were had by Blaine and his cousins there. When Blaine was 13 and Janice was 12, they went on their first date at the Foremost Skating Rink which led to a lifelong love that never faltered. After finishing high school in Foremost and college in Lethbridge majoring in Journalism, Blaine and Janice were married in 1975 and lived in Calgary where Blaine started his career in insurance adjusting and then he followed his brother-in-law, Greg Roth, to Medicine Hat in 1976. Blaine worked for Henchel & Company and then in 1981 Blaine started Plains Adjusters with two partners and continued this business until 2005 when he and Don Tetrault opened TMD Adjusters. He worked there until his retirement in 2016 after 43 years in the business. Blaine always loved music and playing his keyboards in a band and he played with many different people throughout the years. He also loved racquetball and squash and played daily at the YMCA for most of his life where he also made a ton of friends and enjoyed the competition always. Blaine’s family was all important to him and he enjoyed every gathering that was had, especially teasing his nephews and nieces and telling a good story. His children and grandchildren meant everything to him, and he would have done anything for them. He will be missed by all who knew him.
