RAYMOND HOFFMAN
Feb. 15th, 1938 – Feb. 15th, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Raymond Lewis Hoffman on Tuesday, February 15th, 2011 after a long struggle with Parkinson’s, at the age of 73 years.

Ray is survived by his loving wife of 52 years Dorothy, daughters Jo-Ann (Peter) Giesbrecht of Perdue, Sask. and Deborah (Gene) Kozowy of Kamloops, BC, as well as grandchildren Matthew and Raymond.

He was predeceased by his parents and brothers Gordon, Allan and Neil.

Ray was a devoted husband, wonderful Dad and a “cool Grandpa”. Matthew and Raymond looked upon him more as a Dad than a grandfather. He instilled his love for Jehovah in his daughters and grandsons. He drove logging trucks since he was 15 years old and never lost his love for driving. He spent many enjoyable hours with his son in-law Gene, just “shooting the breeze”. He will be missed by all.

“Dad, you will always be our hero.”

Special thanks to Dr. Mosewich and Dr. Kruger, the caregivers at Hospice and Homecare givers, as well as to Ray and Dorothy’s neighbours, the Hayners, Tooveys and Whites, and especially to all in our congregation who came to visit us and gave us support and encouragement. There will be no formal service by request.

Harry Bryksaw
February 2, 1918 - February 20, 2011

We regret to announce that Harry Bryksaw of Kamloops BC passed away on February 20, 2011 at 93 years of age.

Harry is survived by his sons Glenn (Jean) and Doug (Karen), his grandchildren Holly and Neal, his sisters Stef (Clarence), Annie (John), brother Emil (Shirley) sisters-in-law Lil (Fred) and Betty (Walter), sister Myrtle (Aubrey), brother Joe (Elaine) and sister Edna (Merv) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Harry was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Katherine, his wife Elsa, his brothers Merle (in infancy), Steve (WW II), Fred, Edwin (Kay), his brothers-in-law Fred and Clarence, his sister Olga (Fred) and brother Walter.

On Groundhog Day in 1918, Harry was born the 2nd of 13 children to Katherine and Joseph Bryksa of West Bend, Saskatchewan. Harry grew up on the family farm and attended Horse Lake School. Harry enjoyed baseball and played with his brothers and sisters in regional baseball tournaments.

When World War Two broke out Harry and younger brother Steve and future brothers-in-law Clarence and Fred, enlisted in the Canadian army – Harry in the artillery and Steve and Clarence in the infantry. Harry served as a training Sergeant in the Artillery Signal Corps in Kingston, Ontario and Shilo, Manitoba. Clarence and Steve were deployed to Europe and Steve was killed in action in Emmerick, Germany on 29 March 1945.

After the war, Harry moved to Toronto and worked for the railway and later became a letter carrier and mail sorter in Islington, Ontario. Harry was transferred to the Revenue Department at the Postage Stamp Depot in downtown Toronto where he rose to become the Department Manager, a position he held until he retired.

In Toronto, Harry met and married Elsa Fivian in 1953. They had two sons, Glenn and Doug. Harry was a devoted family man taking the family on cross-continental camping trips every summer until his two sons were out of high school.

Harry was also an avid sportsman and he enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing and coaching junior sports with the Warren Park Sports Association. He was successful as a manager and coach winning the Metro Toronto Hockey League Championship with his coaching friend Gord O’Halloran.

After Harry retired, he and Elsa travelled extensively through-out North America: from Iqaluit, NU to Victoria, BC, from Peggy’s Cove NS to Los Angeles, CA from North Carolina to Cuba. They also travelled to Spain and England.

Harry and Elsa lived together in the same west Toronto home from 1954 until after 49 years of marriage, Elsa passed away in 2002. Harry then moved to Kamloops to live with Doug and his family. After Harry underwent cancer surgery in the fall of 2010 he moved into the Hamlets at Westsyde assisted care facility. On Sunday, February 20th, 2011 in the Royal Inland Hospital, Harry passed away of heart failure.

The family wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Doctors and Nurses – particularly those on 7 North who made Harry and the family comfortable in his final hours. Thank you all.

Ken Chernenkoff
January 10, 1941 - January 29, 2008

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Chernenkoff, a devoted Husband, a loving Dad, a proud Grandpa and a true Friend.

Born in Arran, Saskatchewan, on January 10, 1941, Dad passed away suddenly on January 29, 2008 in Laughlin, Nevada while on holidays with Mom.

Dad is survived by the love of his life and his soul mate, Sandra and the sparkles in his eyes, his daughters Tammy (Kelly) Brownlee and Cindy (Shane) Leibel, his granddaughters Rebecca and Jesse and his grandsons, Taylor and Aaron, all of Kamloops. Dad is also survived by Louise Chernenkoff (sister in-law) of Prince George and Ginny (Norman) Bowen of Manitoba and his many nieces and nephews. Dad was predeceased by his parents Alex and Margaret, his older brother Bill and his nephew Bradley.

Dad was a very special man who many called “Friend”. He had a lengthy career in the construction business, was pretty handy with a backhoe and had many friends throughout the province in the industry. The lives he touched will be saddened to hear of his passing. His favourite times were those spent with Mom and the rest of his family, getting together for family dinners, having a few laughs and just catching up on what everyone had been up to. His favourite line lately was “I’m retired so I did whatever I wanted today!” at which time he would laugh out loud and make us all smile.

Dad had the heart and soul of a gentle giant and always had time for family and friends.

We invite family and friends to share their memories in a Celebration of Dad’s Life to be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 1, 2008, at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, BC. An open mike will be available for those who choose to share.
