It is with extreme sadness we announce the sudden passing of Adam John Wolkowski. Adam was born February 25, 1984 in Regina.

He is also survived by his aunts and uncles; Cheryl and Kevin Gabel, Rose Ann and John Reitmeier, Diane and Gord Chadwick, Fiona and Isaac Dib, Kevin Cholerton, and Clive and Margery Cholerton as well as his cousins; Leigha and Kayla Gabel, Melanie, Brendan, and Preston McKenzie, Daniela, Liam, and Isabel Dib and Evan Cholerton.
