Edward Sagon Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Edward (Ted) Sagon. Ted passed away peacefully in Biggar on March 1, 2024 at the age of 72 years.

Edward (Ted) Victor Sagon was born on November 11, 1951 to Victor and Katie Sagon in Biggar, Sk. Ted married Jean Burton in 1977 and together, they were blessed with four children: John, Jennifer, Steven, and Mark.

When his children were young, Ted’s house and yard was always full of extra kids with neighbours, friends and cousins often over. He had one rule: everyone had to come in and eat when the food was ready. During these years, the farm was home to cows, pigs, horses, and even the occasional orphan Bambi. Ted enjoyed spending time outdoors,  checking cows, quadding, skidooing, fishing, and once all of the farm chores were done, he would take the kids to Mackenzie Lake where they would go tubing or waterskiing for hours on end.

Ted did exactly what he wanted to do, whenever he wanted to do it. He wasn’t scared of a little hard work, or to try new things, usually jumping in with both feet. This led him to many different careers throughout his life including; grain farming and raising livestock, working for CN, driving semi and eventually starting his own trucking company and hauling grain, fertilizer and anhydrous. His adventures took him all over western Canada and occasionally into the US.

Ted was never one to pass up a good deal and would frequently bring treasures home. These “treasures” always required some tinkering and TLC. But eventually they proved their value. It was also not uncommon for him to bring home pallets filled with cases of fruit or seafood. We enjoyed many seafood feasts on the prairies over the years.

Ted’s greatest joy in life was his grandchildren. He gave his biggest smiles whenever he saw one of them and always had his arms wide open for a huge hug. He was so proud of them. Regardless of where his adventures took him, he always came back to Biggar to help out for seeding and harvest. It was during these special times that he would often be found with a grandchild or two sitting shotgun in the tractor, combine or the truck.

Ted is predeceased by his parents; Victor and Katie Sagon; son, John; and grandson, Connor.

He is survived by daughter: Jennifer (Jason) and children Jeslyn, Eric, Evan; Son: Steven (Lindsay) and children Katie, Kylie, Clayton, and Cole; and Son: Mark (Stacey) and children Georgia, Jayla, and Derek.
He is also survived by his siblings, Pat (Jerry) Kirilenko, Barry (Odette) Sagon and Bernadette (Greg) Blocha, their families, and many other loved ones.

A service for Ted will be held Friday, March 8, 2024 at 11:00 AM at the Associated Gospel Church in Biggar, SK.
In lieu of flowers, tributes for Ted may be directed to Biggar Home Care or the Biggar Hospital.
