<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness and heartache to announce the peaceful passing of John Tom Gondz on March 28, 2017 at the age of 65, with his family at his side. John is survived by his wife, Agnes (née Bonin); daughter, Darcie; son, Jonathon with his wife, Kate Crisp and their son, Gabriel; daughter, Trista; brothers, Stan (Alice) Kaminski and Frank (Diane) Kaminski; as well as many in-laws, nieces and nephews. John is predeceased by his mother Josephine (Bezdietny) and father Michael Gondz; brothers in the Ukraine, Peter and Harry Gondz; mother-in-law, Rose Bonin (née Godbout) and father-in-law, Wilfred Bonin; and brother-in-law, Jerry Verbonac.<br>John was born in Dewar Lake, spent some time living in Kindersley until the age of 16, when the family moved to Saskatoon after he purchased the winning lottery ticket for the home on Red Deer Road. He continued his education at City Park Collegiate and went onto SIAST where he received his certification as an Automotive Service Technician. He worked as a Partsperson at SGI Salvage for nearly 40 years before retiring in December of 2016. John met the love of his life, Agnes and they were married on August 4, 1979. Less than a year later, they welcomed their first born, Darcie on July 10, 1980, followed by Jonathon on August 26, 1982 and their baby, Trista on April 8, 1985. His face always lit up whenever he spent time with his grandson, Gabriel, who came into his life on August 1, 2015. He was passionate about his involvement in the soccer community and coaching all three kids over many years. He loved all adventures outdoors, like fishing, camping, hunting, skidooing, as well as tinkering with anything that has an engine. He is remembered for his pipe, cruising on his motorcycle, convincing you to try water skiing and always finding a deal or use for anything and everything. He was an amazing friend, son, brother, husband, father, uncle and Gido and has left us all with memories to last a lifetime. He will be forever in our hearts and always on our minds.<br></div>
