Eugene Orest Samuel Hugh Still

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.  Isaiah 58:8

All to soon Gene had to leave us on Monday, 25 April 2022 at the age of 58. He was predeceased by his mother (Agnes Still), father (John Still) in 1999 (Wpg), and his brother (John Still)  in 2017 (Stonewall), and his daughter (Jacqueline Cannizzaro) in 2021 (Carman). He leaves to mourn his wife of 22 years (Joyce Still), son (Chris Fehr), and son (Phillip Fehr) and mother-in-law (Alberta Horsman), sister Sue (Dale), sister Margaret (Rick), and grandchildren (Jaimin Ranger), (Jordan Fehr), and (Jaylin Fehr) and many nieces and nephews, and extended family members, friends, and colleagues too numerous to mention.

Gene grew up in the St. James area of Winnipeg. After graduating from Sturgeon Creek High School, he worked at Arnold Bros. Transport in the tire shop and also drove with his dad who was a long distance owner operator truck driver. After a few years of traveling, he set his sights on journalism. He received his degree at RRCC and his ensuing career encompassed television, radio and press. His employment as reporter, assignment editor, and producer with CKX-TV and Radio took him to Brandon and Saskatoon. He did colour commentary for the Selkirk Steelers, and he had the privilege to work on "Hollywood Goes Hockey in Winnipeg". Gene loved sports and was all the niece's and nephew's favorite uncle. He could often be seen cheering them on at soccer games, ringette games and cross country meets. In the early '90s he moved to Carman, MB where he became the editor of the Carman Valley Leader, holding this position in the well recognized award winning publication until a few years ago. This is also where he met the love of his life and future wife, Joyce. Gene loved the many summer trips taken as a family to B.C. and Detroit Lakes. He loved to watch the kids and grandkids excel at whatever they tackled. His love, humour and kindness graced our home and his positive influence kept us smiling along life's way. Gene was strong, kind, witty and smart and we were blessed to have him as a husband/dad/papa/and mentor of our family.

Even though in the last few years a genetic illness took away his freedom and independence, he never lost his zest for life or his sense of humour. He showed exemplary courage and determination when facing the hurdles that his illness would throw at him. He lived a life of dignity and integrity. He woke up everyday with a smile on his face and a joke on his lips and never let bitterness overtake him. He appreciated many good people that came through our doors to help. There are no words in the English language to express how much he will be missed. God bless you Gene for a life well lived and to borrow from one of your infamous quips; "It's been a slice!"  

A private family service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the ALS Society, a local charity, or a charity of your choice as you wish.
