January 25, 1930 – July 23, 2019
Aaron Boak January 25, 1930 – July 23, 2019 It saddens our family to announce our Dad’s peaceful passing. He will be forever in the hearts of his family: Gail Boak, Lorraine (Rick) McLaren, Brian Boak, Darlene (Kevin) Skalicky; grandchildren Michael (Celena) Skalicky, Ryan (Melissa) McLaren, Kristin (Al) Karst, Lindsey McLaren (Curtis Bellegarde); great-grandchildren Lucas and Isla Skalicky, Emerson and Everett McLaren; sister-in-law Alice Boak, brothers-in-law Herb (Sylvia) and Neil Assmus. In heaven Dad will join the love of his life, Gladyse (Crabb), granddaughter Megan Skalicky, brother George Boak, sister and brother-in-law Mearl (Louis) Koob, sisters-in-law Carol Crabb, Terry Assmus, and brother-in-law Earnest Crabb; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Dad was a wonderful family man, always a smile with a story or a joke to tell. Together Dad and Mom farmed, ran hotels and other jobs and later did some travelling but they loved camping. Dad’s face would light up when kids, grandkids, or great-grandkids would walk through the door and we know he will be watching over us. Dad loved a family party and started the Crabb-Boak family reunion about 30 years ago. Sadly and to his disappointment 2018 would be the last one planned. Dad got his wish to have our family reunion, to have us all together on our usual weekend by letting us celebrate his life on July 27, 2019. We listened to a beautiful tribute given by nephew Darrell Wingerak. So Dad, to you we will say our usual “See you later”, and cherish our memories. Honourary Pallbearers were Dad’s four great-grandchildren, pallbearers were his eight grandchildren. Service was held at Ross Funeral Chapel and Facilitated by Anette Pryce and Gary K. Miller with Arrangements entrusted to Ross Funeral Service. Interment was held for Aaron and Gladyse at Mount Hope Cemetery, Assiniboia, SK

My condolences to the Boak family on the passing of Aaron. I have fond memories of my days at the Lodge Hotel. Aaron always had a joke or a funny story to tell. I was fortunate to have a bit of a visit with him when I was in Assiniboia a few years ago.

We are so sorry to hear about Aaron. We have always felt like he and your Mom were part of the family. In fact my kids thought they were related because they were always at family gatherings like birthday and anniversary celebrations. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. Hugs and love to all.

We met the Boaks at Douglas Park a few years ago, were camped near them. They were there for a family reunion at the group camping. They had a beautiful Motorhome. We had some good visits with them. Sorry to hear about Aaron.
