WILLIAM (BILL) JOHN DUTKA
Date of Passing: Aug 02, 2008Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
WILLIAM (BILL) JOHN DUTKA It is with deep sadness that the families announce the peaceful passing of William John (Bill) Dutka on Saturday, August 2, 2008 in the year of our Lord and in the presence of his loving wife, Frances, of 58 years of marriage. Remaining to forever cherish Bill's memory are his many cousins in Canada and the United States. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Martha; his brother, Michael and wife, Helen of Lansing, Michigan. Bill received his education at Tolstoi, Emerson and University of Manitoba (B.Sc., B. Ed.). He enlisted in the RCAF and upon his discharge in 1945, he pursued a career in education, retiring after 17 and a half years as principal of Warren Collegiate. He participated in many community activities, and also played in an orchestra for many years. In 1967 Bill humbly accepted Canada's Centennial medal in recognition of valuable service to his nation and country. In 1970 he was presented the Manitoba Centennial medal from the Manitoba Historical Society. A private family interment will be held in Chapel Lawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your community. Condolences may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are changed now Not because he left us But because he touched us.
