Peter William Reilkoff >> March 28, 1922 - December 7, 2020  Dad was born in 1922 on a farm near Kamsack, the second youngest of 9 children to his Russian Doukabor parents, Wasyl and Mary (Konkin). He lived and worked on the family farm with 6 brothers and 2 sisters. Dad met and fell in love with our Mom, Helen (Dergousoff) and they married in 1947. Due to lean years farming, Dad and Mom left the farm and Dad forged a lifelong career with a then “infant” Sask. Power Corporation. Dad worked in various towns throughout his career, made many good friends, and retired in Kerrobert from a job he truly liked. Peter had a true farmer mentality where you thought, created and built all things out of necessity with your own hands. Dad was an honest and caring man with many talents. He loved to hunt, fish, and curl but especially liked woodworking.  With our Mom, he helped raise 5 children - Linda Bohn, Jackie Reynolds, Bob, Les and Randy. His true joy in life was spending time with Mom and his kids and later his grandkids. Dad was so proud when they could afford to buy a cabin at Turtle Lake. He worked tirelessly, with no complaints, to give us what we needed, in order to send us into the world prepared for life. Dad lived through good times and hard times, always positive thinking. Family and friends were cherished. He stayed true to the Saskatchewan spirit of always trying to move ahead against the relentless wind.  Life’s work well done Dad.
