Obituary of Abe Broesky
Abe Broesky, age 82, of Steinbach, MB., passed away peacefully (not strong enough to fight his last heart attack) on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, at the St. Boniface Hospital.
He is survived by his spouse Helen; their daughter Laverna; four sons: Stan, Jeff, Harv & Glen; and two daughters-in-law: Sandra & Susan. He will be remembered by sisters, brothers, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, and many grandchildren & great-grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his parents, many siblings, and their spouses.
You may know our dad for his variety of entrepreneur adventures and accomplishments, starting as a butcher for IGA, opening stores, restaurant, car dealership and retiring on the diary farm. Or for all his work as a volunteer: at the church, at the Thrift Store, serving at Birchwood only to list a few.
Whenever we will cast that reel, auger that ice hole, sit by a roaring fire, go camping, fire up that lumber mill, or sing the oldies, WE will not only be remembering our dad, but missing him dearly.
Dad taught us: never to be afraid of a new challenge, as much as that head thinks, hard work always prevails; and dad…you worked hard right to your very last breath.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date for the family this summer.
If friends so desire donations in memory of Abe may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.
