Obituary

RONALD DROHOMERESKI (published on January 10, 2009)

RONALD DROHOMERESKI Peacefully on January 5, 2009, Ron Drohomereski of Stony Mountain, (formerly of Teulon) Manitoba, passed away at St. Boniface Hospital. Our beloved husband, father and GeeGee will be deeply missed by his best friend and wife of 46 years Laury, his son Russ and Rita, daughter Shelley and Kerry and the greatest joys of his life, his grandchildren: Tanner, Alynne, Cordell, Samantha, Sydney and Jayden. Dad was predeceased by his parents Bill and Betty Drohomereski, his sister Gail and is also survived by brother Terry. Dad had a bright smile and kind word for everyone he met and left an impression on so many. He will be missed and fondly remembered by the numerous people he met in his many careers and travels throughout his life. Born August 17, 1942, Dad lived a very full life and had many stories to share from his many adventures. They may have included working stringing lines for Hydro, working a crusher in Kettle Rapids, driving truck or meeting the many clients at the storage facility where he worked most recently. He spent many years farming in the Teulon area where he and Mom raised us, and shared so many memories. The site of him riding in on his horse with a calf on the saddle that was too small to make the journey is just one. His love of farming and his commitment to ensure that all farmers got their fair share led to many trips to the far reaches of the world. During this time, he may have been flying overseas on the Prime Minister's plane or sitting on a couch and chatting with a foreign President while waiting for a meeting. Dad always knew how to get the attention of those he wanted to, even if it meant releasing 300 one day old chicks at a press conference on Parliament Hill, they watched you coast to coast that day Dad. His love of music, Dad played the drums for many years, has been passed on to all of his grandchildren, which made GeeGee so proud of each and every one of them. To see all of his grandchildren love to read a good book as he did always gave him the comfort that their only limitations in this world would be their own imaginations. There was never a challenge too big for him to take on, or as he liked to say to Mom, it looks pretty heavy, but we'll try it anyway! . Dad taught both of us to keep putting one foot in front of the other slowly and methodically and we would eventually get there. Mom and Dad led their family by example, they are the greatest team to watch find a solution to any problem. We will love you forever and miss your humour, encouragement, strength and guidance moving forward without you. Following Dad's wishes a private family service will be held. Donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation of Manitoba if so desired. Mackenzie Funeral Home Stonewall in care of arrangements.
