<div itemprop="description">Leayon Zazelenchuk<br />1928 - 2015<br /><br />On Friday, January 30, 2015 Leayon Zazelenchuk fell asleep in the Lord. <br /><br />He is survived by his wife of 59 years Mary (nee Pshebnicki); daughters, Diane (Einar) and Jo-Ann; brothers, Mike (Jeannette) and Willie; brother in law, Charles (Joan); and many nieces and nephews. <br /><br />He was pre-deceased by his parents Annie and Steve, sisters Katie (John), Gloria (Fred), Margaret (Bill), Bella (John), Marika, Elsie and Iris; brothers, Nick (Pearl), John (Helen), and Matt (Lily); and sister-in-law, Anne.<br /><br />Leayon was born on a farm seven miles south of Sheho, SK. He obtained his elementary and high school education in Sheho and Nipawin, SK. He came to Saskatoon in 1946 to attend Business College and later worked for Paulin Chambers Biscuit Company and Starlite Bottlers. In 1967, he went into business for himself, operating a service station, first with Shell Canada and then with Petro-Canada. He received numerous awards and recognition while in business from both companies. He supported his community by sponsoring a soccer team and Pee-Wee ball team for many years. He was also involved with the High School Work Program which provided students with practical on the job training. Leayon retired in 1992. The church was always an important part of his life and he volunteered regularly, particularly with bingo fundraisers. He enjoyed many family vacations throughout Canada and the US, and later other well deserved vacations to Holland, Jamaica, Hawaii, Las Vegas and San Francisco. In his leisure time, Leayon enjoyed golfing, fishing, and gardening.<br /><br />We very much appreciated the compassionate care by the staff at St. Paul&rsquo;s Hospital. <br /><br />In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Leayon can be made to the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of Holy Trinity.<br /><br />Prayer Service will be held on Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 2, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of Holy Trinity, 919 20th Street West, Saskatoon, officiated by Very Rev. Taras Makowsky. Interment will follow in the Orthodox Section of Hillcrest Memorial Gardens. <br /><br />To view this notice and share your memories, visit &ldquo;Obituaries &amp; Tributes&rdquo;.
