MIKE PROZYK July 21, 1931 - August 3, 2018 It is with broken hearts we need to share of the sudden passing of Mike, at Concordia Hospital. He will be sadly missed as a loving husband of 64 years to his wife Helen and father to his sons, Blaine (Barb), Barry (Lois), grandson Gary, extended family and friends. He has made the transition to join his predeceased parents, brothers (Peter, Steve), sister (Fran), grandson (Bryan) and many family and friends. Mike was born and raised in Winnipeg. He lived his life as an outgoing man with lots of personality. Everyone who knew Mike loved to stop and have a chat. He will be missed by his many friends that he made while travelling on their adventures. Please join the family for Celebration of Life at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Bardal Funeral Home, 843 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The family will be having a private gathering later. There will be no viewing or funeral service.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • We met Mike in 2001 when we began working at the Christmas Cheer Board. "Mikey" as we called him was a wonderful volunteer, worked hard as one of our Safeway pick up drivers and always had something interesting to talk about. Mike & Oscar were a "dynamic duo" at the Cheer Board for many years and Doug worked with him one year when Oscar wasn't able to come in. Doug says that Mike knew the best way to travel their weekday route and it included u-turns and trips down back lanes to miss traffic or to shorten the distance by a block or two. Mike continued to stop by with Helen once or twice each season to visit with us after they retired from volunteering. Mike spoke proudly of his grandson who was able to come in a volunteer for us one Christmas. He truly loved his family! Through his physical challenges that came about with ageing, Mike just kept on adapting as needed and kept a sense of humour. This Christmas we will miss our visit from Mike and Helen but we will remember Christmas' past and the fun we had working together. You will be missed Mike! Our thoughts and prayers go to your family, Doug & Linda Grayston - Posted by: Doug & Linda Grayston (Friend) on: Aug 15, 2018

  • It was only recently that my Bob and I were talking about Mike. In the 1950’s Mike worked at the pickling plant on Higgins Avenue across the street from the King’s Hotel and I worked (after School & weekends) at the B/A Service station on Higgins Avenue and Mike would drop in and get his gas there. Both of these facilities are long gone from Higgins Ave. We lived on McFarlane Street. Mike and his family lived across the lane from us on Annabella Street. He was the shorter of the two brothers. When Eleanor and I got married in 1965 we have a picture of Helen helping my sister in-law Pat prepare food etc. for Eleanor’s shower on Tait Ave. Stan & Eleanor Kuzak, Sorrento B.C. - Posted by: Stan & Eleanor Kuzak (former neigbour & friend) on: Aug 09, 2018

  • Almost everyday after I go home from work, he’s always there either in the front door opening the door for me or sitting by the apartment’s lounge greeting me. He’s always smiling and happy. I feel so sad now that he passed away. I always look at the sit at the apartment lounge whenever I enter the door, it was a habit to me to look at the sit and greet him. - Posted by: Trisha Yambao (Apartment neighbor ) on: Aug 08, 2018

  • During The -30c days and nights, Mike would be directing traffic at the Old Winnipeg Arena always having a smile and warm heart. He made many lives much more easier on those frigid days! Always engaging and a joy to communicate with...Rest in peace. - Posted by: John Stewart (Friend) on: Aug 08, 2018
