Donald (Donnie) Bruce Kager passed suddenly from this life on October 29, 2019 at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. He was born on March 1, 1938 in Spalding, Saskatchewan to Frank and Marga (Eberle) Kager, the oldest of three children.
Donnie married Gail Archibald on October 22, 1959 in Naicam Saskatchewan and to this union four children were born: Mona, David, Velvet and Kristina.
Donnie farmed with his father and brother at Spalding during his life of being single, later buying land three miles west of Pleasantdale when he and Gail married. There they mixed farmed for the next fifty years, raising beef cattle and growing cereal crops for the cattle and to sell. Some of his off the farm employment consisted of Russell Folden Trucking, Bourgault Industries and driving school bus for the Tiger Lily School Division. In 2006 Donnie and Gail purchased their home in Melfort and over the next three years did the renovations to the house during the down time of farming finally moving in 2009.
Donnie was a community man, sitting on several sub committees of the Pleasantdale Community Association throughout his fifty years of living there. He also sat on other committees such as the Tiger Lily School Board, the Wheat Pool, the Naicam/Pleasantdale Co-op Board, the Pleasantdale Minor Sports, and the Meyer’s Lake Rec Board. Once moving to Melfort he and Gail became part of the Melfort Seniors Group.
Music was a constant factor in Donnie’s life, be it playing for wedding dances, New Year’s Eve dances, homecomings, family reunions or practice sessions in basements and later playing for those in the Nursing Homes and Senior Complexes in Melfort and the surrounding area. It was a love second to his family.
Those left to celebrate Donnie’s life are: his wife of sixty years Gail; their daughters and their families; Mona (Brent) Laurans, Jennifer (Justin) Allen, Nathan and Lucas, Dean (Wendy) Laurans, Robyn (Ryan) Spencer; Velvet Pomedli, Eric (Amber Miller) Pomedli and Deacon, Trina (David) Martens, McKenna and Rylee, Stephanie (Mike Wise) Pomedli and Zaidyn Fourny-Wise; Kristina (Murray) Kwasny, Korrie (Walter) Iablonski and David Kwasny; brother Frank (Bev) Kager; brothers-in-law: Rick Stevenson, Charlie (Shirley) Archibald, and Jim Archibald; sister-in-law Lorraine Massier, numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins, last though certainly not least Molly (man’s best friend).
Donnie was predeceased by his son David; his parents: Frank and Marga; sister Marie (Olson) Stevenson; son-in-law Leslie Pomedli; parents-in-law: John Archibald, Doris (Archibald) Armstrong and step father-in-law Clayton Armstrong; sisters-in-law: Betty Kager and Lylia Archibald; brothers-in-law: Norman Olson and Frank Massier; niece Gaylene Kager, nephew Ken Peterson, great niece Jodi Massier and great nephew Evan Archibald.
