June 6, 1949 - March 20, 2020

On Friday, March 20, 2020, Stephan Marchenko of Sanford, Manitoba, passed away suddenly at the age of 70.
Stephan Vratislav Marchenko was born in Usti nad Labem, Czechoslovakia, to Stephan and Maria, on June 6, 1949.
Beloved husband to Jackie; father to Uri (Michelle), Myles (predeceased), and Ashleigh (Cass); grandfather to Joelle, Paige, and Gavin; and brother to Irene (Tommy), and Igor (Ilene). Also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, and first wife, Paula. He also loved his fur grandbabies, Jaxx and Maddie.
Steve worked for the Canada Revenue Agency at the Winnipeg Tax Centre for 30 plus years. After retirement, he and Jackie lived in Meadowbrook Villas and embraced the community atmosphere. Steve had a positive outlook, warm heart, and beautiful smile. He enjoyed his friends and neighbours, was well liked by all who knew him, and will be sorely missed.
Steve was an avid lifetime music lover and was a proud member of the world-famous band known as Second Time Around.
His other passion was travelling, and he got to share that passion with his beloved wife and partner in crime, Jackie.
Funeral services will be held at a later date due to Covid-19 pandemic circumstances.

  • Ash, Cass, Gavin and the entire Marchenko family, We are so saddened by Steve’s passing. He had a “go with the flow” attitude, which was so needed and appreciated. I’ll never forget how he graciously allowed (on a regular basis) ~10 teenaged girls blast music, raid the fridge and have a drink at the kitchen table before we would head out to the bar for the night. I’m sure he was counting down the minutes until we left, but he would just smile and let us do our thing! I’ll forever remember his voice as he’d say “behave yourselves, girls!” as we’d run out to the cab. He was a great man and will be missed. - Posted by: Danielle McRae (Ashleigh’s friend ) on: Mar 30, 2020
