Michael Krawchuk Obituary
Estes Park resident, MICHAEL "Mike" ELITON KRAWCHUK, 73, died on Friday, May 6, 2016 after an extended illness. Formerly from New Jersey, Mike spent the last 27 years in Estes Park. He and his wife Winifred "Winnie", who died in 2004, bought and operated "The Long Horn Liquor Mart" for a number of years before retiring. Mike was born on July 20, 1942 in Newark, New Jersey and graduated from Neptune High School. After serving in the Naval Reserve, he entered the U.S. Navy on active duty in February 1962. Mike was very proud of his time in the service aboard the USS Duxbury Bay (AVP38) and his part in its relief effort during the Bay of Pigs evacuation. Mike was a certified plumber having apprenticed for five years with the Plumbers & Pipefitters Union in New York City. After his apprenticeship, he worked as a foreman in New Jersey until he retired and moved to Colorado. Mike always loved the outdoors and Estes Park saying it was "God's country." He was an active member of American Legion Post 119 and the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge 2617. Mike is survived by his son Michael, daughter-in-law Lisa, and grandchildren Michael and Hunter in New Jersey; his daughter Patricia Krawchuk in NJ; his grandson Frankie Remington; and his sister Susan Morris and brother-in-law Vondell Carter in Virginia. He is predeceased by his wife Winnie; his youngest daughter Sharon Remington; his younger sister Nancy Borre; and, his parents, Michael and Helen Krawchuk. Among his closest family members is his cousin William "Billie" Sostak and wife Alice. Remembering Michael would be incomplete without giving special thanks and recognition to his friends and caregivers in the Estes Park area who cared for him before he left this life. Arrangements have been made with Allnutt Funeral Services and the American Legion Post 119 will have a ceremony honoring Mike on Sunday May 22, 2016 at 2 p.m. See www.allnutt.com to send a message to Mike's family.
