SAWCHUCK, Mike On September 6th, 2011, Mike passed away peacefully in his 90th year. He is predeceased by parents Kalina and Wasyl Sawchuck, brother Stanley Sawchuck and sister Ann Sawchuck. Mike is survived by his sisters Mary Semeniuk and Stella Scott, nieces and nephews: Leonard and Margret, Don and Roxanne, Kathleen and Michael, Andrea, Eric and Kerry, David and Mary, and Bruce. Mike was born in Westlock, AB and moved to BC as a young man and worked in forestry. Not a holiday went by without Uncle Mike, and we could always count on him to bring the wine (sometimes it helped). Mike's favorite pastimes were walking through Stanley Park, watching hockey and CFL, and socializing with his neighbors. Mike believed strongly in exercise, and remained strong until the end. Our Uncle and brother was compassionate, intellectual, and engaging. Thank you to his friends and neighbors at Kiwanis Towers, to the nurses and staff at LGH, and to all that knew Mike and appreciated Mike's unmistakable presence. Uncle Mike, you brought character into our lives, distinction to our family, and you will be greatly missed. There will be a private family reception.
