Waschuk_Steve.jpg

Peacefully on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at St. Boniface Hospital Steve went to be with his Lord.

Steve is survived by his wife of 63 years, Anne (nee Davidchuk). Left to cherish his memory are his four children: Bruce (Sue-Ann), Dean (Mary Lou), Cindy (Dave) Reimer and Larisa (Darrell) Ens; 10 grandchildren: Evann and Kylie Waschuk; Ben, Ellyn and Graham Waschuk; Joel and Adrienne Reimer; Riley, Campbell and Nate Ens. He is also survived by his brother Ernie (Ollie) Waschuk and sister Eva (Walter) Grams and numerous nieces and nephews and many good friends.

Steve was born in Kwasow, Ukraine. The family immigrated to Canada and eventually settled in the Swan River farming community. He met his sweetheart while living in Swan River and moved to Winnipeg when they got married.  

Steve started his career working in his own cabinet making business. This led to employment in construction and drafting.  Prior to his retirement in 1996, he was working as a building inspector for the City of Winnipeg.  Steve was a skilled carpenter and built every home he lived in. Steve was generous with sharing his skills over the years helping countless people. He was called upon often as he was a creative problem solver when it came to construction. He was well versed in the building code.

Steve was heavily involved with Charleswood Temple in his younger years and Calvary Temple thereafter. He used his God-given talent in construction to give leadership to numerous building projects within the church as well as at CT Youth Camp. He also enjoyed serving in the television production of Calvary Temple church services, singing in the choir and serving on the church board for many years. Later in life, he and Anne took many mission trips to the Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

Steve always had a project on the go. His most endearing accomplishment for his family was his beloved cabin at Lake of the Woods. He loved to fish and was eager to share his passion with his grandchildren. As much as Steve loved the cabin he got great fulfillment when others were able to enjoy it too.

Steve loved his wife very much. He did all he could do to support her in her battle with dementia until the day he died. Dad will be remembered for his love for the Lord and his family, his hard work ethic, and dry sense of humor. The family was blessed with being able to spend hours at his bedside over the last two weeks of his life.  

Thank you to the staff on 6E at St. Boniface hospital for looking after Steve so well.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Our deepest condolences on the loss of your father and grandfather,. I remember your dad, Steve, as a kind and caring man who, along with his wife, Anne, welcomed us into their home and took such good care of our daughter, Andrea, when we weren't there to do so. May he rest in the peace and love of God forever more.

Dear Waschuk Family,

I am so sad to hear of Mr. Waschuk’s passing. I lived with the Waschuk family for 6 years back in the 1990’s while attending U of W. Mr. Waschuk was a “substitute” father to me during this time when I was far from home and missing my own father.

Mr. Waschuk was such a kind, caring, and thoughtful person. I know he was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend and that he will be greatly missed by so many. I am so grateful to have known him and to have had him in my life.

Big hugs to all members of the Waschuk family.

Love,
Andrea (Hutchens) Spurrell

Dear Aunt Ann, Cousins Bruce, Dean, Cindy, Lisa and
families:
It is with sadness that I learned of Uncle Steve's passing. He was the uncle who loved to play with me
in my infancy and childhood, who lived with my parents
several years as a young man , and who was kind and
gentle.He is in many of my memories of childhood.
Uncle Steve will be remembered all of my days.
God bless you all, Sally Hogg ( Waschuk)

Our thoughts and love go out to the Waschuk family at this time. We have good memories of Steve and Anne as part of our Charleswood Bible Study group and hosting us with other friends for dinner on our return visits to Winnipeg.
We remember Steve to be a gentle and kind man who loved his family.
Harry & Elaine
