Born in Poland on 26 December 1893, son of Thomas Radomsky (1859-1933) and Anna Kuboczck (1861-?), he immigrated to Canada with his family in 1898 and was naturalized in 1902. He grew up in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood and graduated from the Brandon Normal School (1921). He worked as a teacher around rural Manitoba, including service as Principal of Tolstoi School (1923-1924) and as a teacher at Fyrer School (1930-1931), Sheffield School (1934), and Poplar Park School (1935). He later moved to Winnipeg where, by the mid 1940s, he worked in real estate until retirement. On 28 October 1922, married Ewdokia “Dorothy” Saranchuk (c1896-1981) in the Rural Municipality of Springfield and the couple resided at 12-12-4E. He was a member of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church. He died at the Grace General Hospital on 19 November 1984 and was buried in the Glen Eden Memorial Gardens.
