Dad passed away at the age of 90 at Sherwood Care in Sherwood Park, AB on June 18, 2013. He is survived and sadly missed by his daughters Darlene Pogany, of Sherwood Park, AB, Toni (Jason) Jacob of Honeymoon Bay, B.C., his sister Elsie (Nick) Koochin of Castlegar, his grandchildren Kim (Byron) Myhre, Kari (Nigel) Kucher, Derek (Robin) Pogany, Asia Jacob and his great grandchildren Haley, Tanner, Ethan, and Brooke Myhre, Savanna and Jake Kucher and Cohen Pogany. He is fondly remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews and their families.
After Dad’s wife passed away, he moved to Sherwood Park to be close to family. Dad was a wonderful, caring, loving man and touched many hearts with his kindness and wisdom. His greatest love was family. The times he treasured the most were spent at family hockey games, family nights, outings and special family occasions. In his 89 year he flew to Victoria, B.C. by himself to spend time with his daughter Toni and family.
He was predeceased by his parents Fanny and Nick Popoff, and sisters Ann Chernoff and Mary Swetlishoff.
Dad passed away peacefully with his daughter at his side. His family would like to thank Dr. Dusang and the Nursing staff at Sherwood Care in Sherwood Park for the wonderful, considerate and gentle care provided to Dad.
There will be a graveside service at the Brilliant Cemetery with a private family gathering to follow.
