Henry, the eldest child of Tillie and Steve Ewasiuk
was born in Edmonton on December 18, 1934.
In 1955, Henry married Virginia Sharun. On October 19, 2013, they celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary. They have three daughters; Linda (Tom) Desaulniers,
Karen (Ian) Newman and Cheryl (Russell) Jordan.
Henry also has three grandchildren that he adored;
Jessica, Sarah and Kyle.
Henry worked at Stelco for a few years, then went to work for Canada Post, first as a Letter Carrier, then as a
Transportation Manager, which he retired from in 1989.
In the early years, Friday nights would find Henry and
Virginia league bowling. He also had a great passion for
curling. Henry thoroughly enjoyed retirement. This allowed him time to leisurely read the paper, and enjoy their
lake front home. He and Virginia became snowbirds in
Apache Junction, AZ for 22 years, where they enjoyed
many friends and activities. Although, by spring he
always looked forward to the summer months,
when he could be together with his family.
Henry was predeceased by his wife Virginia six
months ago. He was also predeceased by his mother
Tillie and son-in-law Ian Newman.
