Obituary for Douglas Wayne Bogaski

Douglas Wayne   Bogaski
Douglas Wayne Bogaski (May 2 1956 - March 2 2018)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas (Doug) Bogaski. He always loved traveling and exploring, and this Friday after a beautiful day on the ski trails, he continued his travels without us. He will be joining his parents, Olga and Gustave Bogaski, as well as his mother-in law Doris Oneschuk and father in-law Jack Campbell.

He will be missed by his loving wife Lynn Bogaski, his adoring daughters Talia, Deanna, Kaitlin and Jenelle, and his big brother and sisters Jack Bogaski (Nancy), Donna Panasis (Doug), and Sandi Smith. He will also be remembered by the mother of his children, Elaine Grymonpré, his stepsons Brian, Eric, and Micheal and stepdaughter Kayla, his beloved grandchildren Amiera and Kaden, and many other relatives and friends.

Doug loved his family and friends, and took great joy in his children and grandchildren. He also loved nature, cigars, the Bombers, and art. He was an expert DIY handy-man and one of the first individuals in Winnipeg to own an Apple computer. In addition he was a great fisherman, golfer, excellent soccer player and an extraordinary storyteller.

One of the first coaches of women’s soccer in Manitoba, Doug helped bring the sport to its current significance. He graduated the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, and was recently named one of the best figurative artists in Canada. He retired from the City of Winnipeg in 2014 to relieve chronic back pain and pursue the activities that brought him joy. His many wonderful skills and talents left us too soon.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Heartland Community Church on April 21st in Landmark, Manitoba from 2-4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Doug’s name to the School of Art Endowment Fund, to the Heart and Stroke Foundation http://www.heartandstroke.ca/get-involved/donate, or to West Broadway Youth Outreach http://www.westbroadwayyouthoutreach.com/online-donations.html
