KOTOWICH: Matt Kotowich, age 93 years, of Brandon, Manitoba, passed away peacefully at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Saturday, July 10, 2021. Matt was born August 19, 1927 in Sapton, Manitoba where he spent his early years. Matt retired from Assiniboine Community College in 1988 as their Wood Working Instructor. He was a very talented man, whose passion in woodworking covered creating fine furniture to building their own log home. He was an avid outdoorsman who marveled at the beauty of nature and its wildlife. His favourite years were spent on their acreage outside of Brandon enjoying all that nature presented. Matt was predeceased by his wife Vera (married in 1974), and brother and sisters. He leaves to cherish his memory, stepsons Steven Budnarchuk and Donald Budnarchuk and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A private family graveside service will take place. Donations may be made in Matt's memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st St., Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 2W8 or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Unit 3-2430 Victoria Ave., Brandon, Manitoba, R7B 0M5.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
My condolences to the family on the loss of Matt. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met, and I always enjoyed our visits. One year we were discussing gardening, and before I knew it, he came to my office with garlic bulbs from his garden for me to plant. His devotion to Vera was unmatched, and he experienced great sorrow at her passing. I am happy that they are back together now, but will miss seeing him. - Posted by: Ellen Murray (Friend) on: Aug 30, 2021
