  • Notes 
    • KRYWY, Steve

      On Sunday, January 24, Steve's long life journey found its peaceful resting place. Predeceased by his beloved wife Anne, Steve leaves behind his loving daughter Pat, his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Steve and Marian Martyn, as well as many nieces and nephews in Winnipeg, Cambridge, Brantford, Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton. Steve was born on October 3, 1919 in Vasylkivtsi, Western Ukraine, the youngest child of Petro and Palahna Krywy. Taken from his family as a young man, he survived adversity, hunger and displacement until finding his way into the Polish division of the British Army. He survived the battles at Monte Cassino, Italy. At war's end, after time spent in a POW camp, Steve immigrated to England. In 1951, with immigration to Canada followed by, in 1956, marriage to Anne, Steve had found his new home. Steve was always grateful for the secure life that came with his Canadian citizenship. He was also thankful for the security provided through long time employment with Budd Canada. In retirement, Steve took up walking, enjoyed tending his bountiful vegetable garden and visiting and reconnecting with family and friends both in Canada and in Ukraine. In respect of Steve's wishes, there will be no funeral. A celebration of Steve's long life will be held in the spring, his favourite season.
