PAUL CHANAS

Peacefully, on November 13, 2020, after an intense battle with cancer, Paul Chanas, aged 82 years of East Selkirk, passed away at Selkirk Regional Health Centre.
He is survived by his daughters, Shauna, Donna (Dale) and Karen (Andrew), and his granddaughters, Danika and Ellie. He will also be lovingly remembered by his brothers-in-law, Bob and Bert, sister-in-law Sharon, and brothers-in-law, Bill, Ted (Rose), Edward (Cecile), and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his wife Adele, son Paul, parents, Dmytro and Caroline, sister Katherine, brothers, Michael and John, and sisters-in-law, Eleanor and Bernice.
Dad was born and raised in East Selkirk, Manitoba. He worked at many different jobs until settling in at the Manitoba Rolling Mills (Gerdau), where he was a proud steelworker, and employed for 37.5 years. He also farmed the family property until the year Mom became ill. Dad knew the value of hard work, and instilled this in his children.
Dad was very proud of his yard. He loved working in his garden, and sharing the fruits of his labour. His lawn had to be cut in a very specific pattern. He also loved playing cards and having coffee with his friends.
The family would like to express our sincere thanks to the staff at Selkirk Regional Health Centre for their care.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Dad's name to CancerCare Manitoba or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
As per Dad's wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private family burial will take place.
