John Shykora

1923 ~ 2012

John was born in Eldorena, AB on March 15, 1923 to Dmytro and Katerina Shykora. The family moved to Grindrod, BC six weeks later. John grew up on the family farm, but spent a good part of his life in the bush, starting with horse logging and progressing to felling trees with a chainsaw. He purchased the family farm from his parents, and except for a few years in the army during WWII, farmed until his retirement to Enderby, BC in 2007. John passed away peacefully in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on September 19, 2012 at 89 years of age. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Mabel, his children Lynn (Larry), Don, Jim, Dianne (Russell), numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his sister Rose Brodoway. All are invited to share memories and refreshments with the family from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at the Enderby Seniors Complex (1101 George Street, Enderby, BC). In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests a donation to a charity of your choice. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
