Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather & brother, Victor John Kossowan of Camrose, Alberta, formerly of Bonnyville, at the age of 95 years.
Vic was the 8th child born to John & Teklia Kossowan on February 24, 1925 in Mundare, AB. On August 30, 1947 Vic married Helen Mercier and had eight children.
Vic had a variety of occupations: farmer; owner of Vic’s Men’s Wear & V & H Confectionary; salesman at Zarowny Motors. He was a carpenter working with his brother, John at K&K Builders and later on with his son, Ken. In his retirement, Vic worked at Dr. Brosseau School as a caretaker. He was well liked by the kids and known as “Mr. K”. He also raised chinchillas and was the President of the Bonnyville Seniors Citizen Drop-In Centre.
Vic was an enthusiastic gardener, teaching his eight children the love of nature and pride in maintaining a well groomed yard. He loved berry picking with his family and took the children on many ice fishing excursions. In his younger years, he was an avid golfer, curler and loved to play the banjo in a band with his brothers, at many local halls. Vic was a master at cribbage playing well into his 90’s.

Our most sincere condolences to all of Vic's family. May knowing that he is remembered with a great deal of respect and care help ease the sorrow you feel as you mourn his passing. Because of the pride he took in his construction work, we continue to live in comfort in one of the first houses he built with his brother John (aka K & K Construction. Rest in peace, you've lived the good life!
