On August 26th, Alexander Sadesky passed away peacefully at age 84 after a remarkable life.
Born in the Ukraine on June 17, 1933 to Anna and Stefan Sadecki, Alex excelled in school, sports, and all things mechanical until the uncertainty of war forced them along with his sister Ludmila, on a harrowing journey westward through Poland, to end up in Germany at the end of WWII. There, he frst met Natalie Baun, who years later and a world away, would become his wife. In 1948, the Sadeckis immigrated to Edmonton, Canada where Alex eventually became an engineer (U of A, class of 1958) and later a manager of engineering for Edmonton Power. As fate would have it, the Sadeckis sponsored the Baun family to come to Canada and Edmonton in 1954 and eight years later, Alex and Natalie were married.
Alex is survived by Natalie, their 3 children: Teresa (Mark), Ron (Pam), and Greg (Susan), 4 grandchildren: Logan, Anna, Lucas, and Evan. Alex will be remembered for his generosity, devotion to family, and his extraordinary mechanical ability. It seemed there was nothing he could not fix or build. He was a gentle and fair man, with just a bit of mischief. He will be dearly missed.
The family requests that donations to either the Alzheimer or Cancer Societies of Canada be considered in lieu of flowers.
