Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Growing up in Garden City, us kids knew Mr. Klymkiw, as 'Constable Klymkiw', and were well aware of his goaltending exploits. What a great life...! Sincerest condolences to his entire family. Constable Klymkiw is back on the team, backing up Terry. May he Rest In Peace... - Posted by: Stephen Skrypnyk (Family friend) on: Aug 28, 2022

  • As a student at Hastings Elementary in the late 1950s and early 1960s, I remember Mr. Klymkiw as the school principal. It was easy to respect him because even as "challenging" grade four students, he respected us. I am so sorry to read of his passing. Deepest sympathies to the family.. - Posted by: Duncan Malcolm (Former student ) on: Aug 14, 2022

  • Deepest condolences on the passing of your Dad. Your Mom and Dad were kind and wonderful people and I have many fond memories of them. After playing hockey together and the years at Carlings, Fosters, and Molsons there were many wonderful memories my parents shared with your Mom Joan and your Dad. I especially remember the wonderful trip with your Mom and Dad to Honolulu and the many Christmas parties and Carlings picnics. Mr. Klymkiw rest in peace. - Posted by: Janice Maslanko (Daughter of Bill and Margaret Maslanko) on: Aug 13, 2022
