WILLIAM (BILL) AZARANSKY

With sadness the family announces the passing of Bill Azaransky, on Saturday, December 19, 2020, at the age of 83 years.
Left to mourn are his sons, Mike (Carrie), Ken (Kim), sister Kathy (Mal), grandchildren, Andrew, Kalan, Avery, Alison and Kyle. Bill was predeceased by his wife Linda, who passed in 1997, and his parents, Serghi and Anastazia Azaransky.
Born in Hlukhiv, Ukraine on March 8, 1937, Bill and his family immigrated to Canada in 1949. They originally settled in Lethbridge, Alberta, then to Winnipeg in 1951. In 1968, Bill married Linda, and in 1972, they moved to West St. Paul, Manitoba, where they raised their family and became pillars of the community. Bill earned a living as a Diesel Mechanic, working at Midwest Detroit Diesel until 1982, then chose self employment, opening KML Engine Service which he operated until retirement. Bill was a mechanical genius, a pilot instructor, a civil defence volunteer, and tremendous father to his sons, as a patient guiding light, he gave them the world. Generous and humble, he will be missed.
Thanks to Holy Family Home for their support.
Following current health guidelines, Services will be held on Monday December 28, 2020, at the Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, followed by internment at Glen Eden Cemetery.
Those wishing, Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

  • My condolences to Mike, Ken and their families. Bill and Linda were like my second parents, growing up and spending lots of time at their home. I was always welcome and have only great memories... so many. The influence of laughter, joking, playing and working both hard and smart and always being respectful will be missed but not forgotten.

I will always have fond memories of Mr Azaransky, first one was when he was with Midwest Detroit us boys would be getting hats of every colour. The 2bd memory was when all of us would go over to their place in the winter to play hockey on the creek and Mr Azaransky would carry all of us across the road so our skates wouldn’t get dull.

  • Sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of your beloved father. I so enjoyed Linda and the many visits to our home with Bill in tow, ample hours of visiting while the boys danced with ROZMAI and then again connecting with Ken through our son. May peace and fond memories prevail at this sad time. Anastasia - Posted by: Anastasia yereniuk (Friend ) on: Dec 26, 2020
