TED AUGUSTINE HOMENUIK It is with great sadness that we say good-bye to our father, brother, grandpa, uncle, and friend. Ted Homenuik passed away peacefully, at the Riverview Health Centre, on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at the age of 83. Born on the family farm near Canora, Saskatchewan, Ted was the fourth child in a family of nine children. He grew up in a hard-working family, where after school hours were filled with chores to keep the farm running smoothly. He attended school in Yorkton, SK until he left home as a teenager to play hockey in Prince Albert. Finding his way back to Yorkton, he worked as an assistant at Deer Park Golf Course. Ted learned the game and played at every opportunity. His love of the game and competitive spirit led Ted to join his brothers in achieving great success on the golf course. He captured the Saskatchewan Jr. Championship in 1953 and placed second in the National Junior that same year. As a young man Ted moved to Winnipeg, and in 1960 joined Red River Co-op to begin a 22 year career with the company. He was promoted to Division Manager, managing five service stations and three gas bars in Winnipeg. He later moved his family to St. Andrews, MB and worked in the family business, training Standardbred race horses alongside his wife Margaret. From there he moved to Selkirk and gained employment as an evening caretaker at Happy Thought School. He spoke proudly of the work he did and the wonderful people he met along the way. He treasured the memories he made at Happy Thought School. Ted also spent his time collecting antiques and refinishing furniture. There was a story behind every collectible he had, and he loved to retell those stories to everyone. In his retirement, Ted fulfilled his two dreams of travelling to St. Andrews, Scotland to play the Old Course and attend The Masters in Augusta. Ted was a long-standing member at Rossmere and Elmhurst Country Clubs and a regular in the Mundie Putter League. He captured three provincial titles and represented Manitoba 13 times on the provincial Willington Cup team. Ted's most proud accomplishment was his runner up finishes in the Canadian Amateur Championships and being low amateur at the Canadian Open. Ted has received recognition as both Manitoba Athlete of the Year and Ukrainian Sportsman of the Year. He is an honoured member of the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, Manitoba Golf Hall of Fame, and the Yorkton Sports Hall of Fame. Ted loved a good crib game, a great practical joke, and telling stories with family and friends. He loved the time he spent with his two grandchildren, laughing uproariously and encouraging their curiosity. Ted was predeceased by his parents John and Mary, and brothers Tony, Rudy, and Emil. Ted is survived by his sisters Anne and Carol (Joe); brothers Wilf, Stan (Linda) and Merv; his three children Larry, Terry (Andrea) and Shannon (Jason); and his two beloved grandchildren Addison and Ryder who put a smile on his face whenever they were together. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who all hold a very special place in his heart. A celebration of Ted's life will be held at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Ave. on Tuesday, July 25 at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Elmwood Cemetery. The family would like to thank the staff at Riverview Health Centre for their care and support. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
