<div itemprop="description">Elmer Yuzik <br />It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather, Elmer Yuzik (age of 76) of Wakaw, Sk. on Wednesday August 12th, 2015 at the Pineview Care Home in Prince Albert, SK. <br /> <br />Elmer was born in Cudworth, SK on June 14, 1939 and was raised on the family farm in the Alvena area. He married Iris (nee Sawchuk) on August 12, 1961 and they started their life together in Saskatoon and then later on to Shipman where Elmer was employed as an elevator agent. A few years later they settled into farming and together they raised their children on their farm in the St. Julien district. For just over sixty years, Elmer enjoyed the farming lifestyle and it brought him joy to know that what he started would continue through his son and grandson. Elmer also actively participated in the Alvena Local School Board, was president of the Wakaw Rural Telephone group, Councillor of the R. M. of Fish Creek and president of the St. Julien Ukrainian Orthodox Church as well as many other organizations throughout the surrounding communities. <br /> <br />Elmer was predeceased by his wife, Iris; his parents, Nick and Lena; Iris&rsquo;s parents, William &amp; Mary; and nephew, Darrell Yuzik. <br /> <br />He leaves to mourn his children: Terry (Marlene) their children, Derek (Raelynn) of Wakaw, SK and Brittany of Saskatoon, SK; Gary (Evelyn) and their children, Shane, Kristy (Levi) and their children, Elijah and Austin, and Breanna all of Abbottsford, BC and Shaylynne (Cam) of Bon Accord, AB; Michael of Edmonton, AB; Arlene (Joe) Kryschuk and their child, Emma of Bon Accord, AB; Rodney of Saskatoon, SK; brother, Peter (Zennia) of Saskatoon, SK; nieces, nephews and cousins; and Elmer&rsquo;s very special friend, Bertha Kowaliuk of Prince Albert, SK along with her loving family members. <br /> <br />Prayer Service will be held on Monday, August 17, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. and the Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at St. Julien Ukrainian Orthodox Church with Rev.
