MICHAEL FYK (published on January 04, 2010)

MICHAEL FYK May 15, 1923 - December 31, 2009 With deep sadness Michael Fyk passed away peacefully at Gimli Community Health Centre on December 31, 2009 at the age of 85. Predeceased by his parents, John and Julia Fyk, he leaves to cherish his memory, beloved wife Hilda; daughters, Carol Buskell and Nancy Mghee; grandchildren, Laura (Ken) Proulx, Lee (Tammy) Hamoline, Chad (Monika) Hamoline and Kathleen Buskell, he will also be dearly missed by his 11 great-grandchildren. Michael was born in Lodyna, Sanok, Poland on May 15, 1923. In 1947 he served in the US Army Infantry, 39th Regiment. Just this year he celebrated the 60th anniversary of his Canadian Citizenship. Michael came to Canada and met the love of his life Hilda. They were married in the United Church on September 10, 1949. He was a man of many trades who enjoyed being employed as a cab driver, for Parks and Recreation Canada, as well as in the Mines, but mostly he devoted 27 years to Eatons downtown. Along with many other interests and hobbies, he enjoyed such sports as snow shoeing, cross country skiing, water skiing, swimming and anything to do with the outdoors. He built his cabin and home for his family, which they enjoyed for many years. There was nothing he couldn't fix or build. His spirit and love will be deeply missed by all who was close to him. We would like to give special thanks to the Betel Home in Gimli and to all the nurses and staff. We would also like to thank Gimli Community Health Centre, their doctors and nurses for their great care given to Michael during his last few days. A Celebration of Life in Michael's honour will be held on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Lawn Funeral Home (455 Lagimodiere Blvd.). GLEN LAWN FUNERAL HOME 982-7550
