It is with great sadness the family of Allan Paluck announces his passing at the age of 87 on July 24, 2021. Allan Paluck was born on August 25, 1933 to Walter and Sylvia Paluck (nee Yastremski) in the Pretty View area. He was raised with his brothers, Lawrence and Kenneth, on a farm south of Pelly and attended Pines School. On July 2, 1955 Allan married Florence Antifaev. In 1956, they moved to Castlegar, British Columbia where Allan was employed as a construction worker. Later that year they moved back to Saskatchewan to farm. The family moved to Westbridge, British Columbia in 1958. Allan worked at a sawmill until they moved back to Saskatchewan in 1960 to buy the family farm. Allan and Florence had four sons, Ted, Robert, Terrance and Kevin. Over the years Allan ran and owned Allan’s Backhoe and Bobcat Services. He also operated the road maintainer for the rural municipality of St. Phillips for a few years while farming. Allan farmed until they sold the farm in 1980, and moved to Kamsack where Allan worked for the Town of Kamsack. They moved back to Pelly in 1981, when Allan got a job with the Village of Pelly as town foreman. They lived in Pelly until 1998 when they retired and moved back to Kamsack. Allan adored and cared deeply for his wife, Florence. They were married for 57 years. Allan loved the farm and enjoyed operating his construction equipment. He loved his children and grandkids dearly. He was a compassionate, soft-spoken man who took great care of his family and was always willing to offer a helping hand.
