CARL MANJAK

With sadness we announce the passing of Carl Manjak on November 30th, 2015 in Qualicum Beach. Carl is survived by his wife Anne Manjak (nee Polehoykie), son Allan, daughters Judy (Barry) and Sandra (Tony) and four grand-children. Carl was born in Salmon Arm on June 20, 1930 to Wasyl and Anna Myndzak and was the oldest of four boys: Rudy, Alec and Johnny. He lived in B.C. all of his life and it is in Vernon where he settled to raise his family. His first jobs were with the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the T. Eaton Company. He went on to join the Vernon School Board where he became a skilled carpenter and his passion for power tools started. It was also where he started friendships with co-workers which lasted his lifetime. He cherished his tractors and he spoke of them often up until his passing. A devoted husband and family man Carl was a person with little wants and few needs. Carl spent endless hours in his garden whenever possible. His crops often outgrew the needs of his family, so neighbours and friends would often benefit from his plentiful crops. Carl’s fruit cellar was always packed with fruit and vegetables grown by Carl and preserved by Anne. It is ironic that his final place of residence was called “The Gardens”. A special thank you to Penny Wade (QB) for all the hours she spent with Carl and the joy she brought to him with her visits. No service by Carls request.
