ANDREW ADAMYK

June 21, 1922 – June 4, 2017

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Andrew Adamyk at Tuxedo Villa on June 4, 2017, at the age of 94.

Andrew is survived by his loving wife, Beatrice, of 71 years; children, Carol (Dan) Stanski, Myril (Sandra) Adamyk, Marvel (David) Scott; grandchildren, Craig Stanski, Devin(Stacey) Stanski, Lisa (Blaine) Parnell, Kristy (Clarence) Vigilance, Jesse (Holly) Adamyk, Carmen Scott, and 10 great grandchildren.

Andrew was born and raised in Elk Ranch, Manitoba where he enjoyed farming for many years. In addition to providing a bulk fuel service to many in the communities of Elk Ranch and Mountain Road, he still found time to drive the school bus.

In 1974 he moved to Winnipeg to be closer to his children.  Here he worked for Manitoba Regional Housing until his retirement in 1987.

With a passion for horses and time on his hands, he found himself drawn to Assiniboia Downs race track where he enjoyed drinking coffee and socializing with fellow horse lovers.

Andrew’s greatest love was his family and he felt a great source of pride in all their accomplishments. Nothing brought him more pleasure than family gatherings. He will lovingly be remembered and sadly missed.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to all who cared for him during these last few months.

To honour Dad’s wishes cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
