Obituary taken from The Kamsack Times dated May 29, 2014
HOLOBOFF, Pete: June 22, 1942 – May 12, 2014. We are deeply saddened to announce that Pete Holoboff died at the age of 71 in Calgary, AB, just a few days after he was diagnosed with advanced cancer. Pete was born and raised in Saskatchewan. After brief stints at various jobs, he settled into his life’s work in the oil patch in seismic work and ultimately in oil and gas consulting. He was an avid outdoorsman and very much enjoyed his time hunting and fishing in our northern wilderness. Although he enjoyed those around him, he was especially comfortable in the bush or on the water on his own. He was predeceased by his wife Irene in 1988 and his parents, Mike and Dora in 1983 and 1988. He is survived by his brothers, George of Regina and Herb of Lacombe and their families. Pete is eternally grateful to Bert and Laura Tysowski who were his devoted lifelong friends. At Pete’s request there will be no service.
