John Paluck

June 7, 1919 - June 16, 2012


With great sadness, the family of John Paluck (son Cliff – Castlegar, granddaughter Kyla – Calgary, Alberta, and granddaughter Nik – Kenya, Africa) announce his passing in the early hours of Saturday, June 16th.
On June 7th 1919, John was born in Canora, Saskatchewan to parents Ann and Nick Paluck. He grew up on the family farm near the Pretty View area, located about 10 miles north of Verigin, Saskatchewan. It was here, at the Pretty View School where Elizabeth Michaluck was teaching, that John met his future wife. On December 4th, 1937 they were married and in 1941 their son, Cliff, was born. Their married life was 4 months short of 70 years. John lived until 93 years of age.
While farming, John also became the Reeve of the rural municipality of Keys in 1950-1951. In 1957, John and his family moved from Verigin to Castlegar, BC. Shortly after, he obtained work at Waldie’s sawmill and later at the Celgar sawmill. While working in the lumber industry, John was an active union member of the International Woodworkers of America (IWA).
During the later part of his working career, he became a full time safety and grievance officer of the IWA – leaving Castlegar to live temporarily in Cranbrook, BC. So, for a short time, he and his wife lived in different locations. After retirement he returned home to the family home in Castlegar where he lived until his wife passed away in 2007. Shortly after, John relocated to Grandview Heights, a part of the Kootenay Columbia Seniors’ Housing Development.
John was predeceased by his older brother Sam and his wife Elizabeth (Mickey to her friends). Mickey lived until the age of 91. Her cremated ashes will be placed in the casket, alongside her husband, John, so they can forever be together.
