Orest Kinash

Obituary of Orest Kinash

It is with sadness that the family of Orest Kinash announce his passing on January 25, 2023, at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon after a brief illness.

Orest was born on April 10, 1941, in Rosthern, Saskatchewan, to Mike and Alice (Moskalyk) Kinash. He was a farmer at heart, farming from his early teens to his retirement, and his favourite hobby was entertaining people with his talent for music and the many bands he played with. His beloved Harper will miss her Gido’s impromptu accordion concerts.

Orest is survived by his wife of 54 years, Sylvia (Kwiatkowski), son Tyler (Tanya) and precious granddaughter Harper Grace of Prince Albert, and daughter Hayley of Saskatoon; his sisters, Olga Mulvey of Vernon, BC, Elizabeth Walsh of Edmonton, AB, and Mary Ann Kinash of Prince Albert; his  sisters-in-law, Verna Kinash of Prince Albert, Alice Hlady of Saskatoon, Helen (Jim) Adamko of Saskatoon, Mary Krip of Regina, Julie (Kim) Pearman of Saskatoon; his brother-in-law and best farming buddy and confidant Orest (Sandra) Kwiatkowski of Prince Albert, along with many nieces and nephews that he loved to have lively conversations with; and his best friends, Fred and Marie Grono of Innisfail, AB.

Orest is predeceased by his parents, Mike and Alice; his brothers, Walter and John: his niece, Margaret; and brothers-in-law, Mike Mulvey, Peter Hlady, and Wally Krip. 

As per Orest's wishes, there will be no funeral. Family will gather at a later date for a graveside service.

Our family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who cared for Orest for their exemplary care, compassion, and kindness given to him which helped in our final journey with him. Thank you to the EMTs at Parkland Ambulance, the Victoria Hospital care team, the care team at RUH in Saskatoon, and Beau "Lac" Funeral Home that cared for our loved one.
