It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Adolph Kwasney at his home in Moose Jaw on April 8, 2019.

Adolph was born on July 9, 1950 in Porcupine Plain, SK.

He was predeceased by his beloved wife Joan Ellen Kwasney (Jewell), his parents Annie and Steve Kwasney and his sister Irene Porter.

He is survived by his stepson Jeffery, sisters; Hazel Lazurka, Helen Kwasney, Doris Kwasney and by his brothers Freddy Kwasney and Thomas Kwasney.

He will be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. In his younger years, Adolph travelled the country and had worked in almost every region in Canada. Wherever he was, he developed great friendships, those that he was there for, and to those that were there for him. Today, these many friends are missing him dearly. He married Joan Jewell in 1981 and settled on the farm south of Porcupine Plain for several years. While being a farmer was alright with Adolph, he had greater ambitions. He also loved to do mechanical work, so they moved to Stony Mountain, MB, where he was hired to work as a diesel mechanic with CP Rail. He worked with CP for many years in Stony Mountain where they had acquired many good friendships but later on relocated to Moose Jaw where they could both be closer to family. While in Moose Jaw, he again made many friends and became a familiar face at the Eagles Club.

At Adolph's request, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of his Life will be held at the Eagles Club, 561 Home St. West, Moose Jaw, on May 18, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. A Graveside Service will be held at the Watrous Cemetery at a date to be announced. A further graveside service will also be held at the High Tor Cemetery (15 kms south of Porcupine Plain) also at a later date. All are welcome. In living memory of Adolph, a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services. Please see our online book of condolences at and (Obituaries). Blair Scott Funeral Director
