Myles Michael Leo ClassenAugust 5, 1956 ~ January 31, 2017 (age 60)
The death of Myles Classen, 60 years of Sherbrooke Community Centre, Saskatoon, occurred on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Myles was born on August 5, 1956 at home on the farm in the St. Gregor area to Vincent and Ramona (nee Frank) Classen. He was a survivor from the start, being born prematurely and weighing only 2 lbs, and having cerebral palsy, he wasn’t expected to survive, never mind live 60 years. When he was five years old, he went to Shriner’s Hospital in Winnipeg where he spent a couple of years. He then moved to Saskatoon where he lived for the rest of his life. Myles worked for 40 years at Cosmo Industries. He married Eileen Boucher and they enjoyed 4 years together before she passed away in 2004. For the last 12 years, he has resided at Sherbrooke Community Centre. Myles’ personality shone through in all he did, touching the lives of all of the caregivers and other residents. Even though dependent on others for much of his daily care, he was independent and never complained about the circumstances of his life. He was fortunate to have a case worker who enjoyed outings with him, even taking him to Edmonton for some hockey games and to the race track. Myles always enjoyed visits with his family and his many friends at Sherbrooke Community Centre. Myles will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Ramona Classen of Humboldt; two sisters and four brothers: Cheryl (Vern) Chapman and Kevin (Kathy) Classen of Muenster, Glenn Classen of St. Albert, AB, Russell Classen, Angie Classen (Dave Mueller) and Darryl (Bev) Classen, all of Humboldt; and numerous nieces, nephews and their families. Myles was predeceased by his father Vincent Classen; wife Eileen Classen; and grandparents Leo and Elsie Frank and Michael and Clara Classen. A Funeral Service for Myles will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Gregory Roman Catholic Church, St. Gregor. Interment will follow in the St. Gregory Parish Cemetery. Memorial donations in Myles’ memory may be made to the Sherbrooke Foundation 401 Acadia Dr. Saskatoon, SK S7H 2E7.
