John Mazzei Obituary

1939 ~ 2024 (age 84)

John David Mazzei was born on August 30th, 1939 in Eston, Saskatchewan and passed away on March 29, 2024 at the age of 84.

John was the second of three children for James and Lina Mazzei. John grew up on the farm south of Darcy, Saskatchewan. John started school which was on the same quarter section he lived as a child. He later attended school in Rosetown. During his youth and as a young adult John was the saxophone player in his band called the “Rhythm Rockets”.

As a young adult, John had intentions of becoming a Priest in the Catholic Church. However, he met a young woman, Frances Singer, from Biggar and ended his ministerial intentions. John then got into the banking industry working at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Rosetown.

John and Frances were married in 1959 and lived in Rosetown before moving to Kindersley where they started a family and had four boys.

When not working at the local credit union or farming with his brother Vince on their land near Darcy, John enjoyed building and flying his model airplanes. John was also active with the Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. John had a love for automobiles and could be regularly seen driving a classic older Ford, a shiny new Ford F150 or a Lincoln town car.

John was widowed in August 2008 and a few years later was lucky to meet another wonderful lady, Myrna Good. John and Myrna lived together until they both required the attention of some younger helpers in late 2022.

John is survived by his sister Rose Arsenault, brother Vince, sons Jim (spouse Trish, children John, Tyler and Martina), Trent (sons Richard, Giovanni), Todd (spouse Terri, children Jack and Rae) and Perry (Spouse Shannon, children Rylan, Taryn and Falyn)
