John Victor Joseph Perrot
January 20, 1949 – June 2, 2024

John was born on January 20th, 1949, to Joseph and Josephine (nee Gueguen) Perrot, in Melfort SK. He grew up on the family farm in the Kermaria District, southeast of St. Brieux, SK. John attended the Convent in St. Brieux until Grade 8, then to Notre Dame College in Prince Albert for Grade 9. He returned to St. Brieux to finish out his Grade 12 then continued to farm with his dad and Uncle Yves. John married the love of his life, Rosemarie Laczko on July 26, 1969. The couple welcomed Anita into the world on March 30th, 1970, followed by Greg May 22nd, 1971. John’s father-in-law figured they could use a milk cow with their growing family, but John seen an opportunity to start his dream from childhood, a scene of cows grazing in a pasture. This was the time to put his dream into motion and they decided to buy their first Charolais cattle in 1973 instead of the milk cow! A year later, the family grew bigger, and Kimberly was born on August 22nd, 1974. John’s dream was well on its way, it defined his life. John and Rosemarie worked their life to build their farmyard and develop a large-scale seed stock breeding program for over 50 years. John’s most treasured times were working alongside his wife of 54 years, children and beloved grandchildren. He thoroughly enjoyed watching them grow and supporting their accomplishments. He was so thankful that the cattle business taught their children a solid work ethic, as well as providing an opportunity to meet so many people who became friends. An excerpt from John’s welcome at one of their bull sales: “We as ranchers, love a life that many people envy. Sure we may need an extra job to make ends meet but raising a family, as a family is something we take great pride in. Someone once told me that you will never meet a rich rancher and I believe him. To me richness is not only measured in money, it is the way you live your life. We should be very honored and proud of our perseverance and dedication in what we believe.” John will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 54 years Rosemarie (nee Laczko)Perrot of Naicam; their 3 children, 7 grandchildren and 2 great grand children: Anita (Jason) Perrot of Saskatoon and step daughter Elizabeth (Jordan)Low-on and granddaughters Abigail, Addison of Calgary; Greg (Anna-Marie) Perrot and children Rocco, Talia, Cozi of Alameda; Kimberly (Collin)Martin and Shanese (Jeremy), Tanner and Colby of St. Brieux; two brothers Louis (Helené), Adrien (Marian) St. Brieux, sister-in-law Cathy Perrot and by numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Josephine (nee Gueguen) Perrot, brothers Alain and Victor Perrot, and granddaughter Bella Vita Perrot.
