May 29, 1953 - October 3, 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Erwin, age 69 of Seven Sisters Falls. He passed away after a two and one-half year long battle with cancer at his home with his family by his side.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Kathy; daughters, Ivy and Jaclyn (Colin); and granddaughter Alexandria. He is also survived by his brothers, Gerry (Darlene), Harry (Arlene), and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother Martha, Father Erhardt and brother Karl.
He was born in Whitemouth and started his career with the Manitoba Government in his 20s. The family resided in Seven Sisters Falls for a few years and then moved to Oakbank where they bought a small hobby farm and raised Arabian horses. After 12 years they moved back to Seven Sisters Falls where he eventually retired after 27 years.
He loved to hunt and fish and was always looking for that big buck.
The family would like to thank Dr. Bruneau and his team at Pinawa Cancer Care for their care and kindness. We would also like to thank the palliative care nurses who came to our home in the last few months to help us care for Erwin.
Cremation has taken place and there will be no service as per Erwin's wishes.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare or a charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Our condolences to the entire Plchinsky family on the loss of Erwin...He was quite the guy. It's sad to see another one of the old boys passing away. We both worked with Erwin for many years in Corrections. Erwin was always a guy you could count on when things got dicey & you needed backup. I always enjoyed working with Erwin & he was always good for a laugh. Sorry to see you go Erwin but I guess it's your turn to get some rest. Pour yourself a good stiff drink & kick your boots off buddy. Until we meet again. - Posted by: Al & Janis Necsefor (Work Friends) on: Oct 16, 2022
