Tim was born to Matthew and Mary (Oryszczyn) Rogowski in Cochenour (Red Lake), Ontario where his father worked in a gold mine. At a young age, he and his family moved to Lintlaw when his parents began operating the Lintlaw Red and White Store. During his preschool years, Tim loved his collection of keys! He would take his assortment of keys trying every keyhole or lock that he could find.
Tim attended the Lintlaw-Okla School. School experiences often involved many of his cousins that attended at the same time- Christine and Joseph Firman, JoAnne Madarash, Tony and Russell Madarash and Lori Oryszcyzn. Tim graduated from Kelvington High School. During his school days, Tim played flag football, participated in the Ukrainian Dance Group and played hockey in Lintlaw. Growing up, Tim was a fan of the Star Trek series.
In adolescence, Tim spent many summers at Round Lake Cadet Camp. One year, he had an opportunity to spend the summer months in Vernon, B.C. for further Cadet Training. This presented a chance to attend Expo’ 86 in Vancouver.
Along came technology and the availability of personal computers. Computers and all they could offer began his lifelong love of time spent with technology. Cousins remember him as being the first “kid” in Lintlaw to have his very own computer (as opposed to those who shared a family computer). Early on, he became adept at playing many games such as “Space Invaders”. He attended SIAST Kelsey Campus in Saskatoon for a Computer Programming Course.
After Tim got his driver’s license, he was a proud owner of a new truck. Through the years, he owned several vehicles but none that gave him the excitement and enjoyment as when he was riding his motorcycle.
Tim was employed in a variety of jobs including farm hand, supervisor of a pig barn for Big Sky, and most recently working in Walmart in Yorkton.
A change in Tim’s health significantly impacted his life over the past years. Tim required a move from his family home in Lintlaw to the Kelvindell Lodge in the past year. He maintained telephone contact several times a day with his mom during COVID-19 restrictions. She holds dearly their last conversation the evening before he passed peacefully in his sleep.
Left to mourn his passing are his mother, Mary of Kelvington, aunt Alvena Oryszczyn and cousins Valerie and Brian Pottle and their children Graham and Andrea, Lori and Patrick Bartko and their children Sophie, Pearce, Burke and Jude, Tim’s numerous aunts, uncles and cousins from the Rogowski family. Tim will also be missed by his great-aunt, Mary Firman and many cousins from the Firman, Madarash and Sleziak families. Tim was predeceased by his father, Matt (2011), grandparents Alex (1980) and Anne (2004) Oryszczyn, uncle William Oryszczyn (1998), grandparents Michael and Mary (Shushynski) Rogowski and aunts and uncles from the Rogowski family.
