DONALD JOHN SULYMA April 13, 1939 - February 29, 2012 It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Don Sulyma after a lengthy illness at the Seven Oaks Hospital. Left to forever cherish Don's memory is his wife Carol; three sons, Allan (Janis), Greg (Darlene), Jason (Vickie); four grandchildren, Brittany, Cory, Matthew and Michael; sisters Sophie Rudiak, Tillie Dyck and Delores Kavitch (Jack); as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Pauline; three brothers, Michael, Bill and Myron; as well as two sisters, Stella and Elsie, and nephew Darrell. Don spent 48 years working at Wilson Auto Electric retiring due to illness in 2005. On Saturday, March 3, 2012 Don's Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. in Kildonan United Church, 187 Kilbride Avenue, with Rev. Bill Corkum, presider. The family wishes to thank Dr. Lipinski and Dr. Taraska for their care over the last seven years; as well the staff and doctors on the Fifth Floor Units 4 and 7 at Seven Oaks General Hospital for their amazing care and concern the last two months. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, a donation in Don's name can be made to Kildonan United Church General Fund or a charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • I worked at Wilson Auto Electric with Don. My son, and brothers also worked with him. At first I was really scared of him (being a boss guy) but then found out he had the biggest heart going. Turned out he camped at Selkirk Park for many years, same place as us. Don was what you call a true friend, through thick and thin. I am very sorry to hear of this beautiful man's parting. We didn't hear about his passing until the day after his funeral otherwise we would have been there to pay our respects. Heaven got a great man, we'll miss him definitely at the park. Sorry to the family on your loss, love the Gagnons. - Posted by: Laurie Gagnon (friend/co-worker) on: Mar 04, 2012

  • Carol and family - we are so very sorry to hear about Don. We arrived home late last night and got our messages this morning. We thought about you while we were away and were praying for all of you; we're sure Don is in a better place and is at peace. We are sure there are many wonderful memories of special times; we certainly have some happy memories of times spent with all of you. - Posted by: Stephen, Barb, and Todd (nephew and family) on: Mar 04, 2012

  • I truly understand your loss and pains of sorrow. To me in my mind's eye, I see Uncle Don 40 years ago, dark hair, laughing and joking with gramma and grampa upstairs, where did the time go? Uncle Don was the kind of man that is born to this world sparingly. To his wife and sons, I know that you above everyone else, know you had been blessed with this knowledge. Uncle Don will always remain in my heart as he will in yours. A gift was given, a gift returned. - Posted by: joanne peters (niece) on: Mar 02, 2012

  • Uncle Don was a warm and caring person who loved to laugh and make others laugh. Both uncle Don and his wife (my mother's sister) aunt Carol, opened their hearts and their home to my mom when she needed help most. Uncle Don was not a big man in size, but what he carried within made him a giant. Until we meet again. - Posted by: joanne peters (niece) on: Mar 02, 2012
