My father-in-law, Ken Melnichuk, passed away this last weekend; he was sixty four.
Ken, we will all miss you so so much. You were taken far too soon. I was so looking forward to spending more time with you. To go hunting with you and Curtis again. To hearing more of your dirty and racist jokes while we shared a drink out in the garage. To listening to you go on and on and on about crazy good deals you once got, or about that guy who tried to screw you over, but you got him first, or the correct way to fix a television set or how to invest money, or anything really. I wish you were still here with us today, but you’re not. You’ve left this earth, and I wish you peace on your journey to whatever happens next.
I’m glad I had the chance to know you. We shared some drinks, and I’ve stole some of your old cigarettes and smoked them, so now I can say we’ve shared a smoke too. We had some good conversations. You raised my wife and my brother from another mother. Without you, my life would be less rich. Thank you. I’ll miss you Ken.
Ken is survived by his wife Thelma, his children Janine (married to James) Keller and Curtis (married to Jen) Melnichuk. He is also survived by his sister, Marcia Melnichuk. Ken was predeceased by his parents James and Katherine of Myrnam, Alberta. There will be a service for him on Thursday Dec 17 at 1:30 pm at Memories Funeral Home, 13403 St. Albert Trail
