Jan 12, 1921 – Jan 15, 2017
TONY BOGUSKY of Lethbridge passed away peacefully at Chinook Regional Hospital with his family at his side on Sunday, January 15th at the age of 96.
Tony was predeceased by his loving wife and best friend of 68 years Mary Bogusky and is survived by his children Donna (and Bob) Erickson of Roseville, California, Corrine Klassen of Coaldale, AB, Dennis (and Bev) of Abbotsford, BC, Wade (and Terri) of Red Deer, AB, 11 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Tony was an avid outdoorsman, and he loved fishing, hunting, and golfing. Wine crafter and gardener extraordinaire, his family and friends will remember him for producing 2 lb tomatoes, potatoes, and enough fresh vegetables to be canned and last the winter. In his leisure time, he was an excellent 5-pin bowler and spent a few years curling. After retirement as an assessor for government of Alberta and County of Lethbridge, Tony and his wife Mary travelled extensively and never missed a chance to be out on the dance floor.
As an inductee in the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame, Tony was instrumental in starting the Lethbridge Boxing Club which he coached for 31 years. He is also respected for having captured a lightweight boxing championship title in his younger years.
Tony’s life was well lived, being loved and respected by all who knew him.
At Tony’s request, no funeral will be held at this time, but during the summer months, the family will hold a celebration of life for all to attend.
