KOSTEK KasPosted: December 11th, 2013
Kas Kostek, beloved husband of Pauline Kostek, left this world peacefully with his family at his side, on Thursday, December 5, 2013, a few short months after his 65th birthday.
He is survived by his wife Pauline, his precious children Tanya Roth (David) and Adam Kostek; his sister Linda Federkeil (Eric) and brother Don Kostek ( June), sister-in-law Marianne Erno. He is also survived by Jen & Travis Logan, Stefanie Elliott (Chris), Sandra Lee (Mike) & Eric Federkeil,; Zac (Rebecca) , Riley(Kodi), Dustin & Jaydon Kostek; Jennifer Hijdra (Ruud), Cathy Reyes, Michelle Shah (Gibran), Greg Erno (Shannon) and his bestest girl friend Sierra (AKA Missy). He was predeceased by his step son Michael Kostek, his parents Ludwig & Katherine Kostek, in laws Ted & Patricia Erno, and brother-in-law Brian Erno. Kas worked for many years for the ALCB and then owned Lethbridge Construction Specialties for seven years. In July, he retired from his most current job at Lethbridge Fasteners, where he became a part of their extended family. He was always a wonderful source of information at any job held and felt that the service of his customers was his number one priority. Kas could fix a car, build a house, or give you advice on just about anything you needed to build or repair. He had a wonderful sense of humor and will always be remembered for his “Kasism’s”. Kas was an excellent hockey player and played for the Sugar Kings in his early years. He could also be seen on the football field, the basketball court, the softball diamond or the golf course. In his later years he dipsy doodled all over the ice with the “Oldtimers Hockey League”. Kas loved to camp and fish and we spent most summers in the mountains or ,for the past few years ,at our campsite at Glenwood. He loved to take Sierra to the dog run and never missed a day, rain or shine, until the last few weeks. A Celebration of Kas’ life will be held Monday, December 9th, 2013, at Cornerstone Funeral Home – 2825 323 Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta at 1:00 P.M.
