JOHN LENKEWICH We regret to announce the passing of our dear husband and father, John Lenkewich, on July 22, 2013 at Charleswood Care Centre, at the age of 90 years. John was born on September 23, 1922 to Carl and Pauline Lenkewich. He spent his childhood and youth in the Sandy Lake, Manitoba area where he also received his education. He married Natalie in 1949 and they relocated to Winnipeg in 1958. In Winnipeg, John worked for Broadway Florists while taking courses at R.R.C.C. He also worked for Kustom Plastics, Eaton's, Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Branch and finally with MPI from which he retired in 1982 after 15 years. John was predeceased by his parents and his two brothers, Steve (Olive) and Joseph. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Natalie, daughter Janice, her fiance Tim, and all who knew him. The family would like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Charleswood Care Centre. Cremation has occurred and a private service was held on July 18, 2013.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Natalie and Janice, we are so sorry for your loss. Although I have not been in contact with you for a long time you were often in my thoughts as I remembered the many pleasant hours we shared while I was growing up and you so generously opened up your home to me (and often a girlfriend) when the country folk came to the big city. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in these most difficult times. - Posted by: Vicki (Hnatuk) and Len Lazaruk (fellow Sandy Laker) on: Jul 28, 2013
