Passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. Born in Manitoba on Feb. 26, 1926. He is lovingly remembered and will be greatly missed by his family, children; Ivy (Murray) Schmaltz of Oregon, Cindy Baranuik, Lester (Sandy) Baranuik, all from Duncan B.C, grandchildren; Nika (Cindy) Baranuik, Brad (Ivy) Brownell, Rebecca (Ivy) Lumley, great grandchildren; Ashley Brownell and Kirk Lumley and also one remaining sister, Jane Wisnoski in Grimsby, Ont.

 Andrew joined the services as a young man in 1944 for a short period of time. He then started his lengthy career as a carpenter in 1951 with Alex Richardson, afterwards he ventured out on his own, and carried on to build numerous homes, office buildings and apartments in and around the Duncan area. He was an avid golfer and longtime member of the Cowichan Golf and Country Club. He did very well at winning various tournaments locally as well as up and down the Island. He also helped to construct the Cowichan Valley Golf course and made numerous friends through the years there.

We would also like to thank Dr. Ismail, Dr. Desrocher, Colleen Terlien, Dr. S McDonald, Dr. Saunders, Dr. Masuda and all the staff at Cowichan District Hospital, especially on the fourth floor for all their ongoing support and wonderful care shown to our father through the last stage of his difficult journey.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Andy!

I remember when he used to visit Manitoba – he was always sure to stop by for a few good laughs and a round of golf! We have fond memories of him.
