PETER CHUBATY It is with sadness that we say good-bye to our much loved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Peter Chubaty, after a difficult journey with Parkinson's Disease, dementia and finally cancer. Dad passed away peacefully on September 8, 2018, at the age of 80, at Seven Oaks Hospital, surrounded by family. Dad quietly bore the challenges of his illnesses with grace, courage and humour, and our family is grateful that he is now at peace. Dad was born on November 25, 1937 in Stuartburn, Manitoba, to John and Eva (nee Shushelnisky) Chubaty. He grew up with his 10 siblings on "the farm" which laid the foundation for the strong work ethic, community mindedness and commitment to faith and family that characterized his life. Dad met our mom Helen (nee Kosowan) at a dance in Gardenton, and the rest, as they say, is history. They married on October 15, 1960 and built a life together in Winnipeg, with Donna (born in 1967) and Glenn (born in 1969). Our parents were there for each other through thick and thin, and have been outstanding role models of love, loyalty and partnership. Dad's exacting nature made him well-suited to his work as a Candymaker at Paulin Chambers from 1956 to 1991, a career of which he was very proud. Not yet ready to retire, he completed his candy-making days at Progress Candy in 1998. Dad served with St. John's Ambulance, and was honoured to receive a volunteer service Medal from then-Lt.-Governor The Honourable Pearl McGonigal. Dad was a longstanding and very active member of St. Joseph's Ukrainian Catholic Church, and over the decades was committed to multiple endeavours, including managing Bingo through the Men's Club, assisting at Mass for many years as a Serving Brother/Elder, participating in "fish fries," perogy-making and the van shuttle service with the Seniors' Club and volunteering at the Blessed Vasyl Velychkovsky Shrine. He was a Third Degree Honorary Life Member of the Knights of Columbus, Fr. Shyshkowich Council #8925 and a Fourth Degree Member of the Canon Luhovy Assembly. Dad enjoyed fishing and was an avid curler, and he could count a hand of Cribbage at a glance. Dad was deeply proud of Donna and Glenn, supported them through their years of activities, and volunteered as a soccer coach. He was thrilled when his granddaughters, Alexandra and Logan were born, and he enjoyed watching them turn into the beautiful and capable young women they have become. Dad will be dearly missed by his wife Helen, of 57 years, daughter Donna, son-in-law Randy Boychuk and granddaughters, Alexandra and Logan, son Glenn and daughter-in-law Tracy Bramwell Chubaty, as well as sisters, Anne Shymko, Sylvia (Leonard) Baron, Elsie Bially, Nancy (Bill) Matichuk, and brothers, Bill (Helen), Jerry (Gloria), Robert (Theresa) and Larry, sister in law Marg Chubaty and brother-in-law Nick Koniak (Nettie Senchuk). He will also be missed by the Kosowan family members and many, many friends. With his passing, he joins his parents, John and Eva, sisters, Helen (in infancy) and Doris Koniak, brother Ron, brothers-in-law, Frank Shymko and Frank Bially, and sister-in-law Theresa Happichuk. Our family extends a heartfelt thank you to Twyla of Corporate Services and the Unit 7 staff on the 3rd floor at Seven Oaks Hospital - your professionalism, compassion and kindnesses eased our dad's final month and supported us in our own difficult journey. Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated on Friday, September 14, 2018 at St. Joseph's Ukrainian Catholic Church, 250 Jefferson Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba at 10:30 a.m., with Father Dmytro Dnistrian, CSsR officiating. Interment to follow in Stuartburn Cemetery. Flowers are gratefully declined. Should anyone wish, a contribution to either the Blessed Velychkovsky Shrine or the St. Joseph's Ukrainian Catholic Church Building and Capital Maintenance Fund would be appreciated. Rest in Peace, Dad. VICHNAYA PAM'YAT
