His survivors include his widow, Julia, and three daughters: Mrs. M.E. Johnson, Winnipeg; Mrs. J. Dzubinski, Flin Flon, Manitoba, and Miss Ophlia, at home.

Four brothers also survive: Nick, William and Fred, all of Norquay, Saskatchewan, and Michael of Winnipeg. Two sisters, Mrs. K. Poluck, Winnipeg, and Mrs. H. Kowall, Norquay, Saskatchewan.

Funeral services were held Monday from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Grimsby. Father William Fedak conducted the service. Casket bearers were Messrs. Nick and Michael Cherwyk, A. Romaniu, N. Kordash, Joe Kurytnik and Joe Lessey. Interment was made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery, Grimsby.
