1962 ~ 2023 (age 60)

It is with great sadness the family of Jay Sawatzky announce his passing on Friday, February 3, 2023 at the age of 60

Jay was born to Alfred and Linda Sawatzky in 1962 in Kindersley where he and his siblings Lana (Bryon) Medcoff, and Tanya (Gilles) Foidart were raised. Jay helped his grandfather Peter Sawatzky on the farm on the summer holidays before entering the oilfield working for Frank Mardians Well Servicing and then onto Saskoil in the Coleville area. Saskoil changed names to Nexon Oil where he worked for the next 17-18 years. Jay then contracted his own company; Merrington Oil.

Jay became a proud father on July 13, 1994, to his son Trevor Sawatzky.

Jay loved all sports and knew the players, especially the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens. San Francisco 49ers were also on that favorite list along with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He enjoyed going out for a beer (Molson Canadian) and visiting with friends.

There will be a private memorial service held at a later date for Jay, and he will then be interred in the Kindersley Cemetery.
