October 27, 1978 ~ March 5, 2022
Gregory Clifford Sachvie, beloved son, brother, cousin and friend, passed away unexpectedly at his home on March 5, 2022. Greg will be lovingly remembered by his parents Clifford & Doreen Sachvie, his sisters Tracy (Kurt Weber) and Alison (Scott Kopansky) and his niece Sadie and nephew Max along with his many, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Greg was 43 years old.
Greg, or as many knew him, “Chopper” or “Chops”, grew up in Winnipeg’s North Kildonan neighborhood. He graduated high school from River East Collegiate and studied agriculture at the University of Manitoba. Greg returned to the family’s rural roots, living in Beausejour MB and choosing a career that had him working with the farming community. Greg loved his work with Nutrien Ag Solutions and all of the camaraderie he shared with his farming clientele.
Greg enjoyed fishing, ice fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and quading with friends and cousins throughout the years. Greg loved and enjoyed the many people in his life. He would routinely stop in somewhere for a visit on his way home from work or welcome a friend into his garage for a laugh and to catch up. Or, if he hadn’t seen you in a while he would be calling or texting to connect. When Greg asked you about how you were, he really wanted to know. And no one could make Greg smile and laugh as much of as the kids in his life. ‘Uncle’ Greg was always ready with a quick teasing word, an offer of a cheeky pinchy and sharing the change in his pocket.
Greg was passionate about food and enjoyed cooking and sharing meals with others. He was always proud of his culinary pursuits and if you were fortunate you got to share in the results – a perfectly grilled steak or pork chop, his home made sausage or something delectable straight out of his meat smoker.
