HABOK: John Habok, lifelong Brandon area farmer, passed away the morning of Monday, July 27, 2015 at the Assiniboine Centre. He was 86 at the time of his passing. John, son of Fred and Mary (Mushey) Habok, was born February 28, 1929 on E1/2 18-10-19W in the Cornwallis Municipality. In 1934, the family moved to Glenvale and lived on NE 9-9-21W. John attended Glenvale School until the family relocated in 1942 to NW 12-10-21W east of Alexander. He then attended Alexander School until grade seven when he began farming with his father. John’s early years spent during and following the Great Depression instilled a strong work ethic that stayed with him throughout his life and he passed this trait onto all those who were closest to him. After Fred and Mary retired to Brandon in 1953, John farmed with his brothers Stan and Fred as Habok Brothers Stock Farm until 1985. They began with a commercial cattle and grain operation along with registered Percheron horses, which they showed in Brandon, Regina and Toronto. They made the decision to disperse the commercial cattle and registered horses in favor of raising purebred Polled Herefords. John and his brothers had lots of success with their Polled Hereford operation throughout Canada along with hosting an annual production sale at the farm. In 1971, John married Olga (Klo) of Brandon and they moved to the current farm site where they have resided for the past 43 years. Besides grain farming, John, Olga and their children Melissa and Jonathan, established Mel-Jon Polled Herefords in 1981. They raised registered purebred breeding stock until 1997 and had numerous Grand Champion bulls at the Brandon Bull Show and Sale at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. Thereafter, John semi-retired to grain farming and raising Polled Herefords on a smaller scale until 2009. Besides his passion for farming, John also enjoyed bowling, hunting, baseball, hockey and yard work. He had a quick wit that he maintained up until the end of his life and his one-liners were enjoyed by all who knew him. John also enjoyed sharing his perspective on politics, the weather and farming with all those around him. Olga survives John along with daughter Melissa; son Jonathan; daughter-in-law Leah and grandson Hunter; sisters Nettie, Isabelle, Kay, Rose and Hazel; brother Fred and many nieces and nephews. John was predeceased by his parents; sisters Mary, Ayrain and Anne, and his brother Stan. Donations in memory of John made be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, Unit 4B-457 9th Street, Brandon, MB R7A 1K2.

ATAMANCHUK: It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nestor Edward Atamanchuk, Sunday 19 July 2015.

Nestor loved nature, being outdoors, fishing and spending time with his family at the cabin. He was proud of his family, and took special pride in his grandchildren. Nestor loved learning and sharing his knowledge and experiences; he’d offer advice when asked for his opinion and he would tell you “what you do with the information is up to you.” He had a quirky sense of humor that always made everyone laugh.  Beyond enjoying time with his family, in his retirement he took pleasure in Monday coffee meetings with friends at Tim Horton’s, tinkering around, watching bird activity in the yard, afternoon naps, watching the news and of course the weather channel and last but not least an occasional Extra Old Stock beer.

NETZ: With his loved ones by his side, Hans Jurgen Netz passed away peacefully after an 18 month battle with cancer, on July 15, 2015, at the young age of 54 years. Hans will lovingly be remembered by his common-law wife Pauline and his children Casandra and Jurgen, whom he adored, his siblings Sylvia, Leonard and Bernard, his ex-wife Violet, numerous nephews and nieces, plus many more family, friends and acquaintances. Hans was born and raised in Germany.  He came to Canada and became a permanent resident in the early 1980’s. He held many jobs over the years, working his way up to Service Manager at Murray Chrysler, speaking often of how much he loved the people there. Hans would always help and see the good in people. He did not realize the impact and footprint he left on people’s lives and hearts. He also enjoyed watching sports, so much so, that he held season tickets to the Wheat Kings, speaking often of his "crew" he sat and cheered with. He traveled throughout Europe and the USA, and his favorite was a trip to Cuba with Pauline.  He loved the outdoors - boating, fishing, camping, going to the lake, and watching and listening to the crackle of a fire. He really enjoyed karaoke. His favorite songs were Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”, Willy Nelson’s “Seven Spanish Angels” and George Straight’s “Amarillo By Morning”. He played host and organizer to poker nights at the Crystal and was known for his “pocket fours”, which were known as “the Crystal Nuts”. His work at the Crystal brought many people together and helped form a whole community. His work in the poker world introduced many people to the game and many people to each other. The friendships he helped create will last many of us our lifetime and we will be forever grateful. He truly embraced the Canadian life with his love of BBQ's hockey, poker and good times with good friends. His death will leave a void, but his life made the world a better place and his memory will live on through all of us. A Memorial Service was held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. Funeral Celebrant, Kim Lewarne officiated.

LAVAL: Paul Andrew. On July 7, 2015 with loved ones holding his hands, Paul left us for a place that is now more peaceful for him. He was born October 18, 1933, at his paternal grandparents farm near Wauchope, Saskatchewan, the oldest of six children of Leon and Cecile Laval. In 1943, the family moved to a farm south of Deloraine, Manitoba, where Paul went to Brock School, then high school at Deloraine Collegiate. After teaching one year on permit he attended Normal School in Winnipeg in 1953-54. His teaching career consisted of 8 years at Margaret and 26 years in Souris, retiring as Vice-Principle in 1988.

He also enjoyed golfing, curling and playing pool at the Men’s Club (all of which he said were Rae’s “sanity time”). Camping, fishing and cross-Canada travels with his family and square dance friends, gave him many happy memories. Paul was a talented musician, playing piano, sax and accordion and sang with St Mary’s Catholic Church choir for many years. His singing voice was a benefit to him, when after many years of square dancing he learned to “call” so that he could teach the activity to students at Souris School. Following retirement, he became a club caller and over the years called for several clubs in western Manitoba, the last ones being Hamiota and Brandon. Paul is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Rae, daughters: Debra, Corinne (Ray Voeller), Brenda (Scott) Rose, Andrea (Darrell) Derkach.
