It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of John Kinczylo Sr. on June 14, 2021 - his 85th birthday.
John was a loving and devoted husband to his wife of 60 years, Mae. He was a loving father to his children, John Jr. (Kathi) and Janis Young, grandpa to Jakob Menard (Kristina) and Samuel Menard, and great-grandpa to Lukas Menard.
John spent 41 years working for the CNR and later Via Rail as a locomotive engineer.
He loved to golf, spend time at the cottage, and be with family.
We would like to thank the Palliative Care staff at both the St. Boniface Hospital, and the Grace Hospice for their exceptional care and compassion during this difficult time. A special "thank you" goes to Dr. J. Tam in the cardiology department at St. Boniface Hospital.
In honour of John's wishes, there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the St. Boniface Hospital, or the Grace Hospice.

"Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."
