Frank Stephen Koski, known all of his life as Steve, was born on March 4, 1942 to Theo and Annie (née Koberinski) Koski, on the farm near Sinnett, SK. He was the youngest surviving son in a family of ten children; two of his siblings did not survive infancy. Steve grew up on the family farm. His days were spent playing with, and praying with, and working alongside his older brothers and sisters. He inherited the Koski love of hockey and was said to have been an especially talented player. He was also very mechanically inclined and could fix almost anything that needed repair. Upon leaving school, he followed his dad and older brothers onto an elevator repair crew and did work for both Cargill and Searle across the province. From there, he found work at the nickel mines in Thompson, Manitoba, with Perry and Sons in Humboldt, SK, and with various other jobs as a labourer. Steve eventually retired to LeRoy, SK, and enjoyed the small town familiarity and friendliness of LeRoy and its residents, in his last years. Steve is survived by his three children: Steven, Catherine (Dan), and Cory; his grandchildren: Juliet, Sarah, and Tyler; his sisters: Geraldine (Elmer), Rose, and Marian (Don); his in-laws: Caroline, Maureen, and Jim Anselmo; as well as many nieces and nephews, and their families. He was predeceased by: his daughter Charlene; his parents Theodore and Annie (née Koberinski); his brothers: Joe, Ted (Bev), Bernard, and Leo (in infancy); and by his sisters, Joyce (Jim) and Margaret (in infancy).
