ANTHONY (TONY) CHUDYK

It is with profound sadness and aching hearts we announce the passing of Tony on Tuesday, November 24, 2020. Peacefully after a brief and courageous battle with cancer, Tony passed away at the Percy Moore Hospital.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Elsie; son Brad (Dana); daughter-in-law Candy; granddaughters, Natasha (Matt), Nikki (Brandon); grandson Clint; and two precious great-grandchildren, Bennett and Naomi Saunders; also his aunts, Evelyn Quesnel and Marcia Martinson; as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his son Derek (January 23, 2020); his brothers, John and Ben; sister Josie; his father and mother, Teofil and Rozalie; his brothers-in-law, Walter Korbutiak, Ben Korbutiak, Clarence Quesnel, Darryl Martinson and Adolf Yanicki.
Tony was born in Zbaraz, Manitoba. He left home at age 15 to seek his fame and fortune. He held many jobs. He then returned to his home on the Zbaraz homestead, where he farmed for a number of years. He then took a course in barbering and began his career in barbering, but he still kept on farming. He always said he had three great loves - his family, barbering and farming in the order. He was well known for his sense of humour. As a barber he had a captive audience, where he rarely failed at coming back with a humorous reply as answer to almost any comment or inquiry to his client's question. He was a barber for 60 years, still cutting hair at age 91. Tony and Elsie went on many trips together - Hawaii (three times), Europe, Disneyland and Disney World, most of the United States, and nine provinces, except Newfoundland, which he was eagerly planning to visit next.

Through thick and thin
Through good times and bad
Through happy times and sad
We were a team
We held hands
Friends to the end.

Our family would like to thank Dr. Bruin and all of the staff at the palliative care unit at Percy E. Moore Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
In honouring Tony's wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be at a later date.

  • Condolences to family and friends. He was a gentle and kind man - Posted by: Heather Stevenson (Customer) on: Dec 20, 2020

  • Hello Auntie Elsie and Brably (what I called Bradley when I was little), My Mom Elsie Meilleur and myself were so hurt to see the passing of Uncle Tony. ( I am not a "real" relative, but so close to them they were auntie and uncle. In fact they were my godparents). Just found out late last night about Uncle Tony. So many fond memories of you and Uncle Tony, Bradley and Derek, and Fisher Branch. I miss that place dearly. Uncle Tony gave me my first haircut probably in 1965 or 1966 or so. In the old pool haul. I have a picture of that!! Even got a Snow White bottled drink out of the old floor cooler when we left. Between the old farm and visiting the Chudyk household, are by far my best memories of what seam's so long ago. Last time we saw you both was at my dad's funeral, Larry (Hilaire) Meilleur. That was 7 years ago. How time flies. On behalf of my mom, Elsie Meilleur, myself Kevin and my wife Mary our most deepest condolences to you and the entire Chudyk family. Uncle Tony, you will always be in my memory!! Thank You for your love, kindness and letting us be family. Love You All.... - Posted by: Kevin Meilleur (Nephew) on: Dec 10, 2020

  • My deepest condolences to all the family . Mr Chuydk is a great loss to the community which he so proudly lived in. I’m sure when he arrives on his new journey the first priority is to give Derek a haircut but not before Derek insists he has some cold cuts first. God Bless you Mr Chuydk. vichnaya pamyat - Posted by: Ron Malkowich (Friend ) on: Nov 29, 2020

  • Uncle Tony by far was my favorite uncle, just hearing his name would bring a smile to my face and a chuckle to my heart. Aunt Elsie and Uncle Tony were always a welcome delight for our autumn family get togethers at the cabin. Tony had a magnetic personality, and and was a joy to all that knew him. Not once did he have a negative word to say about anyone, simply a man with integrity. I and many others will miss him. - Posted by: Linda Anderson (Chudyk) (Niece) on: Nov 28, 2020

  • Sorry to hear about your loss of a dear loved one. We only knew Tony for a short time, but he became a friend right away. With his smile and quick wit. He liked my guitar playing and singing which made me feel special. Thanks. We'll miss you Tony. Good-bye - Posted by: Dollard & Margaret Menard (friend) on: Nov 28, 2020
