WACHOWICZ, Anthony Albert 1932 - 2020

We are saddened to announce the passing of our father Anthony Albert Wachowicz RCMP Vet. Ret. He will be deeply missed!!

After battling chronic back pain for many years he is now at rest.

Through his discomfort the last several years he always shone, looked for the good in everything, always engaging, caring, leaving a wake of love with all he met as he did throughout his life.

He is survived by his siblings Mary, Stanley & Tom. Sons Paul & wife Angie, Tim, Dan & wife Lucy. Granddaughters Kijia & Jasmmine.

Tony had a successful twenty-six year career in the RCMP in which he always led by positive example. He also spent 15 years at SaskTel Security.

In retirement his creative spirit led him to many endeavors which he enjoyed, including playing a mean fiddle, making beautiful knives & creating a tasty seasoning enjoyed by many he & our late mom called Antosh's.

Awesome appreciation & gratitude to all the staff & patrons at St. Volodymyr for making Tony feel so at home as well as the staff at RUH for making his final hours as good as they could be.

Tony very quickly became a best Friend after we met him in 1965. He was an excellent police officer who was highly respected by his peers and within the communities he served. It was a pleasure to work with Tony as we enjoyed several night patrols along with the occasional successful investigation. He was an exceptionaly caring person with a wonderful sense of humour and a big heart. Tony will be sadly missed by all who knew him and loved him. Our love and sincere condolences to the family.

Dear Dan, Tim, Paul and families
We are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was a very kind man and was a great neighbour to my parents. Hopefully our dads are enjoying their jam sessions again in a pain free, happy place.
On behalf of the Indzeoski and Federko families our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I had the honour of meeting Tony in August of 1967 when he joined us at Broadview Detachment, Tony was the Sergeant, but the boys let us know that Rita was actually "In Charge." It was a great but busy time, the work never seemed to end, but Tony was there with us through thick and thin. I have managed to maintain a relationship with him for fifty three years and I am the lucky one!

Tony will be greatly missed by many people especially his R.C.M.P. Veteran Family. Special condolences to Paul, Dan and Tim and their families, he was a great boss and mentor.

Uncle Tony had a fierce life-force that made everyone around him Love to be around him! I will always remember the great stories he would tell - they seemed to just roll off his tongue in a storyteller fashion. His music was joyful and inspiring. His jokes made the belly hurt from laughter. The craftsmanship he showed in his knife making and cooking was incredible. He was a kind, loving soul that touched many lives and will be missed very much. My deepest and most sincere condolences go to Paul and Angie, Tim and girls, and Danny and Lucy, as well as his siblings. Sending big hugs to all.

To Paul, Tim and Dan
Our condolences to you and your families. We are very sorry that your dad passed away. We met your dad and mom and became great friends in Kerrobert where Tony was in the RCMP. We have great memories of your dad. I don't know if you remember but Paul and Tim were ring bearers at our wedding 55 years ago.

Paul and Angie, Tim and girls, Dan and Lucy, my very deepest sympathies on the passing of dear Uncle Tony. I will miss his booming laugh, his singing, his Antosh (glad I have a good supply stashed away), and his jokes he loved to tell me. I know he’s with auntie Rita again and with my mom and their siblings that went before. Uncle Tony was dearly loved and will be deeply missed!

We are deeply saddened on Tony's passing. The angels have lovingly wrapped your dad and grandpa in their wings and have taken him for a wonderful reunion with your mom and grandma and those he loved before and lost.
It was my absolute pleasure to have met your dad at St.Volodymyr. We had some very entertaining conversations. He had a deep and fierce love for his family like no other.
May the wonderful memories of your dad sustain you in the days and years to come, and peace find your heart and souls.

Sincere sympathy in the loss of Tony. I worked with him at SaskTel and always enjoyed seeing him, and hearing the stories from his days in the RCMP. I was fortunate to have one of his hand made knives, which brings back memories of him. He also gave me a sample of Antosh's seasoning which I enjoyed.
May your memories bring comfort
Sincerely
Betty Hoffart
