Tompkins Funeral Chapel
Alex was born in the Langham district west of Saskatoon on July 13 1921, to Wasyl and Maria Zuravleff (1918 census spelling). He was the youngest of six siblings including three brothers, Peter, Wasyl, and Sam, and two sisters, Maria and Anastasia. The family resided in the Langham district until 1929 when they moved to the Watson area where they farmed until 1935 when they moved to Hendon. The family thrived despite the loss of their mother (Maria) and two brothers, Sam and Bill (Wasyl). Alex always loved the animals and thus his father delegated this part of the farm as his responsibility. On March 11, 1947, Alex and a young, pretty Dorothy Esawoloff were united in marriage. Their first child, Dorothy, was born in January 1948, followed by Alex, Susan, Marilyn and James. Alex will forever be remembered for his love of life, captivating smile, and his love of a good conversation. It seemed his conviction that any problem could be solved if we just sat down had a coffee, doughnut and figured it out. Alex was predeceased by his wife Dorothy; daughter Dorothy; son Alex; grandson Alex; daughter-in-law Terry and son-in-law Conrad. Alex leaves to mourn his children, Susan (Harold) Clayton, Marilyn Lisoway, and James (Corrine Stone); grandchildren, Angie (Robb) Bloos, Rich (Melanie) Hill, Trinity (Michael) Mol, Dylan and Miranda Lisoway, Angela and Kevin Wall, Jamieson Geuroloff, and Hailey Chase; and great-grandchildren, Alexis and Preston Bloos, and Maxwell Mol. Alex will live on in the memory of his sisters-in-law, Mabel Nabseth and Anne Clavelle, as well as the rest of their families. Anyone who knew him or just an impromptu street-side conversation knew that it would take nearly 94 years for heaven to be ready for this angel.
