It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Timothy Anthony Luhowy of Shoal Lake, MB. Born November 05, 1959. Tim passed away on September 11, 2018 at the Hamiota Hospital at 58 years young with his loving family by his side after a 3 year battle with cancer. Tim was a loyal son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was born in Rossburn, MB to parents Tony and Georgina Luhowy.
Tim had a great passion for sports - namely his beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders. He found great joy as an umpire for baseball as well as a hockey official. Tim received the Dick Davis memorial award as Hockey Manitoba’s Most Promising Official for the 1994-1995 season. He was proud to be selected as part of the umpire crew to cover the Canada Cup held in Melville, SK. Tim also enjoyed fishing, camping and bonfire stories with close family and friends.
Tim was employed in the grain business for 37 years from 1980-2017 when health issues forced him to end his career. Our close knit circle of friends developed with each station posting. Tim’s career started in Oyen, AB and then proceeded on to Youngstown, AB; Neilberg, SK; Lemberg, SK; and the following Manitoba stations included Basswood, Clanwilliam, Minnedosa, Newdale, Sandy Lake, and finally Shoal Lake.
Tim married his high school sweetheart Cory Ledoux in August 1980 and were blessed with three sons, Terryl, Taryn and Ternell. Tim was a self taught handyman and was proud to have passed on this trait to his boys. He was a great sport to participate in anything that Cory dreamt up. Tim loved to play the role of “Santa” and was adored by all who sat on his knee. Tim had a way to make each child feel very special.
Tim leaves to morn his wife Cory of 38 years. Son’s Terryl (Kim), Taryn ( Rachel) and Ternell. Five grandchildren played a very special role in Poppa’s life: Jayden, Kellan, Jaxson, Linden and Blaire. Our furry and faithful companion Sassy brought Tim such great joy. Tim is also survived by his mother Georgina Woychyshyn and her spouse Tony, parents-in-law Lorne and Marion Ledoux, sister Tina (Darryl) and brother Terry (Susan), brothers-in-law Cary (Kelly) and Randy (Sharyl). Numerous Aunts, Uncles, Nieces and Nephews all played a special part in Tim’s life.
Tim was predeceased by his father Tony in 1987, grandparents Sam and Lena Brown and Anton and Flora Luhowy.
