Melvin Brian Stefaniuk

March 28, 1954 — March 28, 2018

1954~ 2018

Peacefully on Monday, May 21, 2018 at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre, Mel passed away at the age of 64.

Mel was predeceased by his father William and son Spenser.

Left to cherish Mel’s memory are his wife of 38 years Susan, children Amanda, Penny (James) and Mel, grandchildren Persephone and Grace, mother Margery and brother Perry (Bonnie) and their children (Justin, Carleen and Kaitlyn).

Mel was born on April 7, 1954 in Beausejour, Manitoba. From an early age he developed a passion for hockey, either playing it himself or cheering on his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs.

Mel married Susan on July 14, 1979 and they started their family soon after. They opened their video store Oh Susanna Sunshine in the early ’80s and it became a cornerstone for families in the community for decades with tens of thousands of movies available to rent.

Every Saturday in the summer Mel could be found hunting for treasures at garage sales throughout Manitoba. He would sell the collectibles he acquired at antique and record shows held throughout the year.

Mel could make friends wherever he went and was always met with the warmest of greetings when they saw him again.

The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Selkirk Regional Health Centre for the outstanding care they provided Mel.

A funeral service for Mel will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, May 28, 2018 at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to Diabetes Canada.
