Victor Chmelyk

October 24, 1935 ~ January 5, 2021 (age 85)


Victor Chmelyk passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital on January 5, 2021 at the age of 85.

Victor is lovingly remembered and honoured by his family: his children Rick (Bernice), Lori (Rick), Robert (Colleen), & Terrance (Sonya); grandchildren Robbie, Ryan, Alisa, Justine, Elizabeth, Cheree, Becca, Erick, & Jaydia; great-grandchildren Grace, Madison, Chase, Ryley, Karsten, Heidi, Victoria, Maren & Josephine; sisters Irene, Vicki, Betty; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He was predeceased by his parents Tom & Pearl Chmelyk; his loving wife, Janice Chmelyk, who passed away on January 12, 2019; and his grandson Micheal.

Victor will be remembered as a hardworking man full of love for his family. He was a committed & loyal husband to Janice, and they enjoyed a wonderful life together & a marriage of almost 62 years. He showed us all what true love was as he visited her every day during her battle with dementia and always had a way of making her smile. He had a pragmatic approach to life, was witty and full of humour. He loved a good game of cribbage, listening to music, playing guitar and accordion, the outdoors, fishing, watching hockey, and just socializing with family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, July 30, 2021 at 10:30 am from the Taylor Community Hall with interment to follow at the Dawson Creek City Cemetery at 2:30pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Victor’s memory to either the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society.
