ALEXANDER (SANDY) OWSIANSKI
January 19, 1951 December 17, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Alexander (Sandy) Owsianski on December 17, 2022.
He is survived by his wife Debbie; daughter Sam; brother Ed; sister Elaine (Murray); sister-in-law Kimberly; brothers-in-law, Randy (Alice) and Rick (Carla) and many nieces and nephews.
He very much looked forward to the retirement life and embraced every day. He and Deb loved Europe and visited many parts of it, some favourites more than once. He escaped the Winnipeg winters by enjoying Palm Springs for many years. He had a tremendous love for music, reading and "puttering" around the house. He was famous for being incredibly organized.
He had a rewarding career in Human Resources, starting with Hudson Bay /Northwest Company where he travelled extensively in far Northern Canada with many adventures and stories to tell. In mid career he transitioned to the health care field, working for the Interlake Health Authority for several years and ending his career at St. Amant Centre.
He was caring and generous with his time, especially with his volunteer work for the Winnipeg Ostomy Association, often to the surprise of those close to him.
A celebration of his life will be held in 2023.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Ostomy Association and/or Canadian Diabetes Association.

Sandy was one of a kind, always optomistic and full of fun. A bit eccentric at times, but to know him was to love him. His humour will be missed forever, but forgotten never. Never offer to help him pack up the car before a trip. - Posted by: ELAINE & MURRAY PAY (Sister & Brother in Law) on: Jan 01, 2023
