Obituary for Peter Punak

Peter  Punak
Peter Punak passed away on Monday, September 24, 2018 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Peter was born in Brandon, Manitoba on Monday, July 13, 1936 to Mike and Annie Punak. He is survived by his daughter, Sherry Lynn (James Murphy) and was a proud grandfather to Aidan, who he fondly referred to as his best buddy. Peter was a proud resident of Brandon's North End and attended David Livingstone School where he participated in all sports and particularly enjoyed hockey and baseball. As a young man, Peter joined the Merchant Marines. After his time in service was complete, Peter worked for American Midway as a carnie and traveled extensively throughout the USA and Canada. After returning to Brandon, he was employed at CFB Shilo as a painter until his retirement in the early 1990s. Peter was ambitious, having his own home painting business. A proud member of ANAF in Brandon, Peter also was an avid gardener and loved animals. He lived his last 15 years at Hillcrest and thoroughly enjoyed the days when the home had dogs visit. He always made sure he had doggie treats. Peter will be remembered for his generous smile, feisty spirit and charming personality. Peter also leaves to mourn his loss, brother John Punak of Winnipeg, sister Mary Vickers of Kelowna, British Columbia, nephews, Allen Atherton (Jeanette), Brad Punak (Rebbecca), Ryan Punak and Lee Vickers. He was predeceased by his parents, Mike and Annie Punak, sister Jessie Atherton, former spouse, Marlene Rea, brother-in-law Lyle Vickers and sister-in-law Darlene Punak. To honour Peter's great love of animals, donations in his memory may be made to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200 17th Street East, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 7M6.
