MICHAEL (MIKE) YANISHEWSKI July 10, 1932 - August 7, 2017 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandpa, uncle and friend, Mike. Left to cherish his memory are his devoted wife of 58 years, Gloria (Urbanski), son Carl, daughter Cindy Jasper (Dave), and grandsons, Matthew and Evan. He was predeceased by his son Bernie in 2013. Mike was born on July 10, 1932 in Brokenhead, Manitoba. The family farm, and community of Green Oak where he grew up, was a special place of fond memories and lifelong friendships. He loved the outdoors fishing, camping, gardening, swimming, and pitching for the local baseball team where was affectionately known as, "Walker". Mike and Gloria raised their children in Winnipeg. We enjoyed many road trips and weekend visits back to the farm where he continued to help out his family. He worked for many years with Manitoba Hydro until his retirement. He enjoyed spending time with his grandsons who were his pride and joy. Dad was a generous, modest man who showed great respect for others, nature, and lifelong learning. He could make, fix, or restore anything. He was always there for anyone at any time. The family would like to thank the many friends and family for their love, support, and prayers. Sincere gratitude is extended to the staff at CancerCare Manitoba and the palliative care teams for their support and compassion. In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place. A service of remembrance will be held on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main Street, West St. Paul, MB. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to a charity of your choice. Glen Eden Funeral Home & Cemetery 204-338-7111
