Peacefully, with his family by his side, it is with great sadness that the family of Bodhan (Bud) Schurko announces his passing on Thursday, October 7, 2021. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, stepfather, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
He was predeceased by his wife Rose; his parents, John and Katherine Schurko; his in-laws, Mary and Dymtro Mozol, Ted Mozol, Phyllis Clarke, Robert Thompson, Georgia Schurko and nephew Robin Schurko.
He is survived by his wife Mary; children, Brent (Teresa), Cathie (Gus); grandson James and brother Alex Schurko. He is also survived by his stepchildren, Tim (Michelle), Donna, Kevin and Darcy (Sandra). He leaves behind many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. Bud leaves his family and friends with decades of fond memories to be cherished.
Bud grew up on his family farm in Zbaraz, Manitoba which remained a favourite place of his throughout his life. He worked for 37 years at CN, retiring as supervisor of the car shop. Bud was an active volunteer for many years, a couple of highlights include his role as a convener in the Winnipeg Minor Hockey Association and President of the East St. Paul Curling Club and President of North Kildonan Community Centre. Bud was a charismatic leader who was deeply committed to his family and friends. As a talented musician, he played the saxophone and clarinet in various bands and at the Swedish Pavillion at Folklorama. His love of sports spread through his family with him as the number one fan and a manager for many teams. His love for the Toronto Blue Jays, golf, curling and music will never be forgotten. Bud got a hole in one at Lorette Golf course at 85 years old. Bud showed everyone how with passion, dedication and hard work, you can make anything happen.
Due to Covid restrictions, a small tribute to Bud's life was held on Thursday, October 14, 2021 with a private burial at All Saints Cemetery, where he was laid to rest.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I met Bud upon transferring over to the Car shop. He was easy going and always up to something but very respected by everyone. Enjoyed working with him exchanging jokes, etc. If you got him on one, he got you back double. We still kept in touch by phone even tho I now live in British Columbia. Lunch time card games at work were full of laughs. Continued my conversations with Mary each time Bud and I spoke. She is a wonderful lady. Love both of them. - Posted by: Ray Stewart ( And co worker) on: Oct 18, 2021

  • Sincere sympathy to the family. Quite a few years ago we had a dance band called the Vasalunders, with Fred, Wilf, Bud and myself on accordion. We had a wondeful time playing all kinds of music but specifically Scandinavian after the doors closed after Foklorama was over! we have very fond memories of our times together. - Posted by: Carl & Edie Simonson (Friends) on: Oct 17, 2021

  • Brent, I’m so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. Condolences to you and your family. - Posted by: Kim Bouchard (Worked with Brent) on: Oct 17, 2021

  • Bud brought me on his curling team when I was eligible for masters curling. That might have been around 2010 with the likes of Gifford, Merrick and Johnason. Those were fun times. Also, chatting with him at Kildonan Place when he met with the boys for coffee. Thanks Bud for those times.
