OBITUARY

David John Stoker

October 24, 1951July 8, 2021

Our love has withstood the hand of time. You are my rock and I have been yours. We have laughed and cried together many times.

The greatest and proudest moments were when the boys came. Sometimes it was a struggle but somehow we always got through them.

John went on to become an EMT and works in Cupar. He met a wonderful girl named Carla and they were married on July 10, 2010.

Carla has a Bachelor and a Master’s degree in Biochemistry and works for Occupational Health and Safety with the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace in Regina.

They have a pug named Mocha. She is our traveling partner and loves her truck rides. We take her everywhere we go, but she is not spoiled.

They also have a farm by Qu’Appelle and they have cows and horses.

When Mila came along she was your princess. She was your shadow and mine. The house was so full of laughter and joy for the both of us.

You rode bikes with her which she loved that and seemed like it was always, "Grandpa and I are going to the store Grandma!" They were off on a mission to get chocolate milk or stop at the mall for an ice cream.

Then came Keiara the second bundle of joy for us, although my leg was bad we didn’t get to see her as much as we would have liked. So we missed out on her antics but David was very proud of her.

Steven went to school at DeVry in Calgary and has a Bachelor of Technology in Electronics Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology. He has flown all over the world with his job.

He always said he wanted to travel on someone else’s dime and has done it. He works for Weatherford and right now he is in Hanover, Germany.

A funeral mass for David will be celebrated in St. Joseph's R.C. Church, Indian Head, Saskatchewan on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. by Rev. Francis Hengen.

Dear Auntie Colleen, cousins John, Carla Steven, Mila and Kiera
Our deepest condolences and blessings of comfort to all of you in this chapter of your lives. We never really know what life has planned and death almost always shakes us.
When I/we think of all the wonderful memories of Uncle David there are so many to try to capture. He was a genuine, kind, helpful, hardworking individual-ALWAYS there to lend a hand to so many no matter who they were or what the task was. He shared his many mechanical talents and conditioning/refrigeration knowledge with the town of Indian Head and for towns all around the area. He had a very good work ethic with the many years of service with saskpower and sask energy never once did we hear him complain about going out on a call to restore someone’s power in the cold of a winters night. (Auntie Colleen you often going to keep him company 😌)
Uncle David will always be remembered for his gentle laid back style getting things done one by one steady and forward-be it cutting 20 turkeys, spit roasting pigs, helping to cater an event, KofC breakfasts and fundraisers he was there with a smile and a steady helping hand!
In particular Uncle David enjoyed the simplicity of life family gatherings, camping, wiener roasts and fires, wrapping unique Christmas presents, trains and mechano sets(anything to build), music, shows, little road trips, good meals, and of course driving round stopping for a quick coffee to show off pictures or stories of his boys or his precious granddaughters or simply watching the farmers and their growing crops. Lastly, but definitely worthy of mention his outstanding Won Ton soup, and campfire breakfasts-which auntie Colleen you helped with along side-we truly loved it all-and will sincerely miss him-He was a WONDERFUL Uncle and his memory will be played on! He is at peace and his light will shine the way for you all!
Love and hugs
Darryl and Rhonda McGregor
