LARRY LYNN STOSKI With incredible sadness we announce the sudden death of Larry Lynn Stoski at his residence, on February 17, 2002, after a short battle with illness, at the age of 49 years. (Born September 24, 1952.) Larry lived his life striving to always be the best at what he did. This showed in his athletics, his years in logging and lumber operating Stoski Brother Lumber, grain farming, and lastly in Wilson River Bison, building an incredible bison herd which is known across North America. His strong athletic talent and competitive nature stayed with him all through his life. He graduated from Gilbert Plains Collegiate in 1970. He then attended the University of Manitoba and chose to transfer to Brandon University for the completion of his Bachelor of Science Degree in 1974. Larry was never beyond taking a challenge. Larry prided himself in giving his boys the knowledge, competence and resourcefulness in farm and ranch operations. He greatly enjoyed his sons and was very proud of each one individually for all their accomplishments. Larry touched more hearts than he ever knew. Larry will be sadly missed by his wife Audrey (nee Alderson) whom he married August 11, 1979; his sons, Tyler, Tyson and Steegan. He is survived by his parents Matt (Dmitro) and Anne Stoski; and his brother Mervin (Sky) of Gilbert Plains, his sister Darlene Fulton (Les) of Dauphin, and his brother Dan (Carla) of Grandview; his mother-in-law Agnes Alderson; sisters-in-law, Gloria Fillion (Bernie) of Gilbert Plains, Lois Vegter (Grant) of Calgary, Rhonda Christensen (Jim) of Winnipeg; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Funeral service was held February 22 at St. Pauls United Church in Gilbert Plains. Donations may be made to the Ronald McDonald House. Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Service had care of the arrangements.
