KOEHN, HARRY (1925 – 2015)

Harry Koehn passed away on September 29, 2015 after suffering a second stroke. He was 90 years old. Harry was born in Radon, Poland and immigrated to Canada in 1950. He settled in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where he completed his CA studies and was admitted to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Saskatchewan in 1955. After brief accounting roles, Harry worked mostly in industry. Already he felt the pull of his ambitious goals. He started his own construction company, Plainsman Developments Ltd. in 1968. He was active in developing many residential and commercial projects and set new land development standards throughout western Canada. “Plainsman homes” are still showcased. Harry was an avid golfer – he had shot his age (or less) every year after turning 82. In addition, he had 3 “holes in one”! He enjoyed fishing, catching a 43 pound salmon on the Campbell River in BC. He was an excellent chef with many delicious recipes in his repertoire. He was a well-read historian who enjoyed debating current affairs with his friends. Harry gladly accepted challenges and was a fierce competitor. He loved a good poker game where his patience and number skills prevailed. He was a determined Scrabble player, winning most of the time against formidable opponents. Harry set new standards throughout his long life. He was a kind, caring, gentle man; he enriched our lives. His memory will always remind us that through love, compassion and generosity, you will have all you need. Harry is survived by his best friend and loving wife, Patricia, and his children: Andrea, Richard (Penny), Gregory, Timothy (Carol), and Andrew (Gina) and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Respecting Harry’s wishes, his “celebration of life” will be in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favorite charity.
