Frank (bud) Haddow of Innisfail Alberta passed away suddenly while on vacation in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Aug 2, 2014 at the age of 84 years. Bud was the youngest of 8 children whose parents homesteaded the Buffalo Head District of southeastern Saskatchewan. Growing up during the depression posed agricultural challenges because of the drought. Bud learned to drive a team at a young age and helped with work in the fields. This led to a lifelong interest in horses, and he loved nothing better than a good horse trade. He followed his oldest brother out to BC to work in the logging industry, then worked in Northern BC and the Yukon driving a CAT to make seismic roads. Bud married Sonya Rabochenko in 1959 and they had three children that they raised on the same land where he grew up along the banks of the Moose Mountain Creek. He provided a living by farming the land and raising cattle. After the kids graduated from high school Bud and Sonya moved west to Stettler Alberta. They enjoyed camping and traveling with their RV to local lakes and camping areas, Osoyoos BC, and USA. Following Sonya’s passing in 2005, Bud moved to Innisfail Alberta. Bud will be remembered for his appreciation of family, livestock and wildlife, and his sense of humor and goodwill. He is survived by his daughter Sandra (Roger Baxter) of Chinook Montana; son Richard (Deanna Haddow) of Innisfail; grandson Cal Haddow of Moose Jaw Sask,; granddaughter Sara Haddow of Winnipeg Manitoba, and daughter Janice (Gerry Farrell) of Innisfail. There is a graveside service 11 am August 9, 2014 in Arcola, Saskatchewan plus a Come and Go Tea at the Country Manor Lodge 2-4 pm Tuesday, Aug. 12. The family extends their gratitude to the Coronary Care Unit of the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon Saskatchewan for the exceptional response and care.
