John was born on March 30, 1931 and was raised in Cooks Creek, MB. After marrying Mary Fecio, they moved to Winnipeg where John worked as a steel lather for 32 years. The move to Winnipeg was short lived as John's love for farming brought him back to Oakbank. Family was very important to Dad. He enjoyed numerous hunting, camping, fishing and snowmobiling trips. His love for travel and his RV took Mom and Dad across Canada and the US. Dad's dream of a family holiday came true when he took us all to Mexico in 2008. A trip we will always cherish. Dad loved his church and had wonderful memories of helping to build it. He continued to help at the church throughout his life. He was especially proud to be a member of the church choir. Dad was a wonderful father who instilled in us the value of family and demonstrated strength through difficult times. Mom was his angel who's never ending loving care carried him through his final days. We sincerely thank the home care nurses, Caroline and Jolene for their compassion and support. Prayers will be held on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Ukrainian Catholic Church in Cooks Creek, MB.
