HARRY MALNYK (published on October 12, 2008)



HARRY MALNYK March 28, 1921 - October 10, 2008 With great sadness we announce the passing of Uncle Harry after a long and frustrating struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Harry will be forever loved and thought of by his wife Judy of 58 years. He will also be remembered by his close nephew Lyle (wife Pat, daughter Jessica) and his niece Brenda. Harry was predeceased by his parents and two brothers Nick and William. Uncle Harry is survived by his son Clifford, his sisters Mary (the late Edward) Zolmanchuk, Pauline (Nicholas) Malzensky and Rose (Clifford) Brown and many nieces and nephews - all of Winnipeg. Harry began his journey in Winnipeg on March 28, 1921. Early in age, Harry embarked on a career as an electrician. Harry was a handyman and could fix almost everything! Harry had a love of gardening and anyone who had the opportunity to visit their home in St. Clements viewed his amazingly successful results of his consistent effort - from his perfect vegetables to his prized rose bushes. He had a passion for the great outdoors and each winter, fed the squirrels and birds. Rain or shine, you could almost always find Harry tinkering around outside. Knowing Harry was, knowing that he built their home by hand. Photo albums of the home from start to finish were always shown to anyone who walked through their door. Prior to Alzheimer's taking over his life, Harry loved visiting people. He participated in many family gatherings and outings. He especially enjoyed Thursday morning visits to Garden City Shopping Centre where Judy and he formed many friendships over the years. Visiting Garden City became an important routine, so important that when he was no longer able to drive or could no longer take the bus or other means of transportation he called upon Lyle, being confident that Lyle would ensure they get there under any circumstances. More importantly, the most treasured aspect of Harry's life was his lifelong partner, companion and love, Judy. There was never a time other than working, when Uncle Harry and Aunt Judy were not together. Sadly, when Aunt Judy was no longer able to care for Uncle Harry, Kildonan, Bethania and Deer Lodge Centre became his homes. A special thank you to the personal care homes for the wonderful care provided. Uncle Harry was a kind and generous man who would do anything for anyone and will always be remembered for living life to the fullest. There are many wonderful memories of Uncle Harry, which would require endless pages. Viewing at Glen Eden Funeral Home will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2008 at 1:30 p.m. followed by a funeral mass at 2:00 p.m. A private interment will take place at a later date. Rest in Peace Uncle Harry. Glen Eden Funeral Home 338-7111
