April 20, 1927 – January 21, 2016
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Merdo Bosiak at the Rotary Hospice House in Prince George, B.C.
Merdo grew up in Dauphin, Manitoba then joined many pioneers when settling in Kitimat in 1956. He worked in the concrete business and volunteered in the community. Merdo was heavily involved in various levels of hockey (Wellspar Loggers, Winterhawks, Legion Bombers Midget Reps, Terrace Chrysler Juveniles). He believed in working hard and never being idle. During retirement, Merdo moved to Prince George in 1997 where he followed his heart breeding Angus cattle right into his 89th year. Mary and Merdo spoke very fondly of the people and their years in Kitimat. Many stories have been told!
Merdo was predeceased by Mary, his loving wife of 62 years, his parents William and Mary Bosiak (nee Smelski), sisters Teenie Michaluk, Francis Gaj, Matilda (Mattie) Bars, brothers Peter (Carl), Harry and John (Jack) Bosiak.
Left to treasure Merdo’s memory are his children Janet Fedorchuk (Wayne), Gordon Bosiak (Anna) and Karen Ward (Chris), and grandchildren Ryan, Lisa, Madeline, Samantha, David and Nicholas. Surviving Merdo is his brother, Walter Bosiak, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
A special thank you to all family and friends for their love and support during this difficult time.
A private family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Donations may be made in Merdo’s memory to the Prince George Rotary Hospice Society or to a charity of one’s choice.
