Obituary of Matthew Macuick

MACUICK – Matthew Macuick, beloved husband of Victoria Macuick of Ituna passed away peacefully on October 22, 2022 at the age of 87 years. Matthew was born November 5, 1934 in the Homefield district to Stephen and Mary (Piasta) Macuick, the seventh of eleven children. Matthew received his education at Smokeside School until he was ready and able to help on the family farm. Having a strong work ethic instilled from a young age, Matthew tried his hand at a variety of jobs. His first job was a rider in the Beaver Hills Community pasture. Matthew then ran heavy equipment working for the Mason Brothers. Following the death of his father, Matt returned to the farm. Matt continued to raise cattle, but the lure of working as a cowboy was too strong. He went back to work with the P.F.R.A., continuing for 32 years until his retirement. In 1957, at a wedding in Parkerview, SK, Matthew met Victoria Okotinsky. They were married on June 7, 1959 and resided on the family farm at Homefield, SK until June, 2015 when they moved to Ituna, SK. Matthew and Victoria were blessed with two daughters, Lorrie and Wendy. Matthew could fix almost anything given a few tools, some wire, spare parts, a welder and a bit of time. After retirement, he designed an abundance of chairs, benches and whimsical yard ornaments which still grace many households. Matthew’s love, however, was his many horses. Matthew is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Victoria Macuick, his daughters Lorrie (Merle) Kozun of Prince Albert, SK and Wendy Macuick of Blairemore, AB. Matthew is also survived by his granddaughter Dr. Breann Kozun (Philip Karnes) and great granddaughter, Eloise of Prince Albert SK and grandson, Dr. Matthew Kozun of Ottawa, ON. Matthew is also survived by his brother, Andrew Mathuik of Yorkton, SK and sister, Jane Chorney of Ituna, SK along with many in-laws, nieces and nephews. Matthew was predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Mary, siblings: Anna, Elsie, Peter, Katherine, John, Martha, Lena, and Olivia as well as many in-laws. Matthew leaves to mourn many family members and close friends. The Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at Sacred Heart Ukrainian Catholic Church in Ituna with Rev. Father Basil Malowany officiating. Ladmer Moskal led in the singing of the responses. The cross bearer was Matthew Kozun. Serving as casket bearers were Merle Kozun, Steve Machuk, Kirk Dermody, Barney Solomon, Harvey Fedyk and Bob Solomon.
