1946 - 2019


It is with sadness we say goodbye to our friend, Donald William Gatzke, who passed away on January 1, 2019 in his home at Samaritan Place.  Don was born Feb 20, 1946 in Weyburn, SK., and worked at Cosmopolitan Industries until his retirement.  In 2012 he moved to Samaritan Place – a place he called home, and surrounded himself with new friends. He often sat in the front lobby with a cup of coffee in hand, greeting all who entered with a friendly smile and Hello!  He is survived by his long-time friend Pat Dunn, his extended family at Samaritan Place, Cosmopolitan Industries, Camp Easter Seal, L’Arche and many friends made in the community.  In memory of Don, take the time to sit and share a cup of coffee with someone, and pass on a smile or wave to everyone you meet.  His beautiful smile will live on in the hearts of all who knew him.  A Celebration of his Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at Samaritan Place (375 Cornish Road, Saskatoon).   Arrangements are in care of Aimé Laventure – Mourning Glory Funeral Service (306) 978-5200
