On Wednesday, August 8, 2018 Ted Mayuk, at the age of 93, passed away peacefully with family by his side, at the Assiniboine Centre Palliative Care Unit. Ted was born July 28, 1925 in the Vimy Ridge District to Wasyl & Katerina Mayuk. As a boy he grew up on the family farm near Pine River, MB along with his 7 brothers and 3 sisters. As a young man Dad left the farm to find employment in New York & Toronto. He eventually moved back to Pine River and married his sweetheart, Iris Burtnyk, on September 25, 1952 at the St. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church in Ethelbert, MB. Together Ted & Iris settled on a small mixed farm in the Vimy Ridge District at the foot of the scenic Duck Mountains where they raised 3 children. Dad raised chickens and pigs, milked a few cows, sold eggs, cream and cheese, had a huge vegetable garden, plus did some grain farming. He especially took exceptional pride in the raising of his registered Hereford cattle. Dad was a dedicated school bus driver and drove children to school for over 27 years. He was a school trustee for the Vimy Ridge Country School and was also an active member and past president of the Pine River Saints Vladimir and Olga Ukrainian Catholic Church. After retirement Mom & Dad moved to Dauphin, where they entertained family and friends. Ted & Iris eventually moved to Brandon, to be closer to their children, where they continued to gather for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. In their latter years Ted & Iris moved to Lions Manor in Brandon where they truly enjoyed life for many more years. Mom & Dad relocated to Rotary Villas October 2017. Dad was well known for his pleasant and happy demeanor and good sense of humour. Dad loved to laugh and make people laugh.
