1923 ~ 2013
The family of August Kulikowski are saddened to announce the passing of our dear father, grandfather and great grandfather on Monday, October 21, 2013 at Pinawa Hospital, with his family by his side.
August was born on May 28, 1923 to Adam and Anna Kulikowsky. He is survived by his children David, Diane (David) and Jim (Joanne), 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren as well as Alice, the mother of his children. He is also survived by his sister Emma and dear friend Audrey. He was predeceased by his parents Adam and Anna, three brothers Carl, John and George, three sisters Lucy, Selma and Wilma and his second wife Helen.
August spent his life farming on the land homesteaded by his parents. Even after moving to Lac du Bonnet, he went out to the farm every day-a labor of love for the way of life and the land. Always busy, August did many things in his life. He created a subdivision, clearing land, building roads and building cabins. He was a councillor for Ward IV of the LGD of Alexander. He always made time for the things he enjoyed, such as hunting (about which many stories were told), gardening (he usually had the first ripe tomato of the season), picking mushrooms and berries, and especially visiting with family and friends. The door was always open, the glasses always full. He will be missed.
The family would like to thank the wonderful caring staff at Pinawa Hospital. You are angels.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 26 at Lutheran Church of the Cross, Lac du Bonnet, MB with interment to follow in the Lac du Bonnet Cemetery. Viewing will be held at the church 1 hour prior to the service.
Flowers are gratefully declined. If you so wish, please consider a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 200-6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6.
