JOHN SEMCHYSHYN

JOHN HAROLD SEMCHYSHYN With family by his side, John peacefully passed away at Tudor House on November 17, 2013. John will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife Helen, of 58 years; sister Stella; daughter Judy (Dimitri), son Jerry (Gwen) and daughter Joyce (Keith); grandchildren Theo (Ntina), John (Alyssa), Nikolas (Erin), Katrina (Ross), Alex (Breanne), Lukas, and great-granddaughter Anna. He was predeceased by his parents Peter and Eva. John was born and raised in Winnipeg Beach and became a lifetime resident. It was there that he raised his own family as well. John worked for the Department of Highways and later with the Department of Transport. He loved sharing his work experiences with family and his most fond memories were that of the Arctic. He spoke often of the special Northland beauty. John was a gentle soul and not a man of many words. He was a kind father, cherished gigi and loving husband. Although John lost his ability of speech after his stroke 11 years ago, he was still able to communicate the love he felt for his family. Our fondest memory will be that of gigi waving goodbye to us as we left the driveway. The family would like to express our sincere gratitude for all of the help we have received these past 11 years. Very special thanks to the most caring and compassionate staff of Tudor House. We will be forever grateful for your kindness during our saddest moments. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 20 at 11:00 a.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, Selkirk, MB, with Fr. Stan Gacek officiating. A private interment will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of John to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Close in our hearts you will always stay Loved and remembered every day Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements. www.gilbartfuneralhome.com
