It is with great sorrow that we announce Fred Danyliuk’s passing at the Pasqua Hospital on April 12, 2012. He was 84 years of age. Fred was born in the Theodore district in May 31, 1927, the son of Wasyl and Helen Danyliuk (nee Marianchuk). He received his education at Westbrook Elementary and Theodore High School. He helped on the family farm and then moved to Regina where he worked at Sears, Canada for 35 years, retiring in 1992. Although Fred was a very private man, he enjoyed discussing various issues over a cup of coffee. While Fred travelled a couple of times to the United States with his buddies, he mostly enjoyed taking his summer vacation and spending it on the family farm, even engaging in some hard manual farm chores. After his retirement, he stayed in touch with his work friends through the Sears Retirement Club. He was a very avid reader and held a great interest in history. Fred was a member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Westbrook for many years.
