May 8, 1948-July 11, 2019

It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our dad, John Tkachuk of Gladstone, MB, on Thursday, July 11, 2019.

Dad was predeceased by his parents Nicholas (1980) and Doris (1990) and sister Marion (2017). He is survived by his wife Janet, sister Sophie Plazio, sons Allan Tkachuk (Lynne) and Chad Tkachuk (Arlene), step-children Kerry Kushner (Angie) and Debbie Kushner (Jacques), 12 grandchildren, and one great-grandson, Stephen. He also leaves behind one niece, Katherine (Bart) and nephew John and their families, as well as close friends and cousins.

John enjoyed the simpler things in life such as watching a squirrel in their front window and fishing and hunting in his younger years. He enjoyed helping others. Even though he had many health issues, he and Janet took time to think of others by organizing meals to develop community in the complex where they lived. He also liked coming to help his sister Sophie when he was able to.

Dad fought a long fight with many health issues and showed strength and courage right to the end. Though we will miss his sense of humour and voice on the phone, we are thankful that he is free from all that he battled with.

Funeral services were held in Gladstone, MB on Monday, July 15, 2019.
