MICHAEL (MIKE) GAWIAK (published on July 08, 2009)



MICHAEL (MIKE) GAWIAK On Saturday, July 4, 2009 Mike passed away peacefully at Concordia Hospital at the age of 82 years. Remaining to forever cherish Mike's memory are his wife of 55 years Stella (Horaski); sons Doug (Eloise) and Ed (Lori); grandchildren Wesley, Mikayla, Matthew and Nicole, as well as numerous relatives and friends. He was predeceased by brother Frank and sister Mary. Mike was born in Poland on June 8, 1927 and came to Canada with his brother Frank in 1934; where they were reunited with their family, settling in the Pine Ridge area. Mike and Stella met in 1950 and were married in 1954 and became members of Holy Eucharist Parish in 1958. Mitch was employed with CNR for 39 years and retired in 1986. Throughout his life he enjoyed golfing, gardening, camping and travelling. His greatest enjoyment in life was his family, whether at family functions or supporting his sons and grandchildren at their sporting events. Mitch was a determined, generous and humble man who always put others before himself. He will be missed greatly by those who loved and knew him. Prayers will be sung on Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Memories in Wojcik's Funeral Chapel, 1020 Main Street. Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. in the Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church, 460 Munroe Avenue, with Rev. Fr. Douglas LeClaire, presiding. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery, 4535 Main Street. Special thanks to the N3 East and Emergency staff at Concordia Hospital for their care and concern. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 6-200 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3L 0K6. Rest in Peace, always in our hearts.
