It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of “the one and only” Con Basaraba on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at the age of 87.
Con is survived by his wife, Rose Marie, 3 children: Elena Charlebois, Neil and Trevor/Charmaine as well as four grandchildren: Isabella, Ava (predeceased), Alexis, Cody Charlebois (Elena). He is predeceased by his parents Wasyl and Elena and siblings Stephen, Doris, Kay, Sandra, George, Harald, John, Alexander (Sandy) plus Alec, Mary and Pearl in infancy. He is survived by his sister, Victoria, in Vacaville, CA.
Con was employed with Continental Emsco for several years. With a honest, hardworking ethic he first established CB&R Enterprises and later Con’s Manufacturing and Energy Services Ltd in Nisku, AB which Trevor continues to operate.
The family would like to extend their gratitude and appreciation to the entire staff at MacTaggart Place, Leslie for her companion care, and to Sheila from AHS palliative care team who ensured his comfort in his final days.
Con will be remembered for his hard-working ethic, his sense of humor, and deep affection for the family pets: Beckett, Duchess, Gigi, and Yodi.
Respecting his wishes, a private family service is planned with cremation and interment at St. Michael’s Cemetery, Edmonton.
