Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Grade 9, good memories, good teachers. Mister Hasuik to me, fair and easygoing to me, I wasn't a problem student, just lazy sometimes, easygoing coaxing and it worked for me. The decades went by and sorry I never took the opportunity to know him more, especially his association with the military, which I admire. - Posted by: William Wonnacott (Billy to him ,Walter Whyte school) (former student,Geography,1973 to 1974) on: Sep 18, 2021

  • So sorry to hear about your loss. I just found out about Borden's passing. My deepest sympathy to you and the family. Borden, his brother Bill and his parents were like an extended family to me, growing up. I still remember all the times our families spent together at the beach and during the holidays. Ukrainian Christmas and Malanka were my fondest memories. The music, the food, the laughter, the great people! We have lost another beautiful person. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Lydia Cox (Old family friend) on: Aug 29, 2021

  • Borden Hasiuk was my teacher, Lt. Colonel in the CF Reserves and one of my supervising cooperating teachers when I was studying to be a teacher. Mr. Hasiuk was a mentor to many. Although often showing a strict demeanour in the classroom, it was balanced with a great sense humour, wit and occasional self deprecation. He had a genuine passion for teaching and learning (especially in mathematics). His dedication to teaching and the military was unwavering. He will be missed by many former students, colleagues and reservists. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Dan Ward (Former student ) on: Aug 28, 2021

  • Sorry to hear about Borden. We were in the same home room during our time at the old WKCI on Salter street. When I joined the reserve army at Minto armories he was our drill instructor. He was a good instructor and he inspired me to do a term in the regular army. Rest in peace old friend. - Posted by: David robertson (fellow student and comrade in arms) on: Aug 28, 2021

  • So very sorry to hear of Borden’s passing. My condolences to Anita and Borden’s entire family. What a good man. Right from the start of my career Borden was so welcoming and kind to me as a newbie. We hit it off to a large part thanks to our Ukrainian roots. We were very honoured (and will always remember) being invited to his retirement from the reserves. Loved performing with him (and his alter-ego) in our “singing” group. May he Rest In Peace. Vichnaya Pam’yat. - Posted by: Greg Udod (Friend/colleague) on: Aug 28, 2021
