SKRUKWA, Michael

Posted: November 16th, 2017


MICHAEL JOSEPH SKRUKWA, of Lethbridge, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, November 13, 2017 at the age of 64 years.

Michael is the loving father of Joseph Daniel (Beth) Skrukwa. He is also survived by his sisters Maureen (Terry) Royer and Betty (Bob) Krausher as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He is predeceased by his father Joseph Skrukwa and his mother Mary Skrukwa.

Michael was a lover of music his entire life. Growing up, he played drums in a pipe band, as well as in a few rock-and-roll bands. He had a bright personality and witty sense of humour that he carried with him throughout his life. Even through his yearlong battle against cancer, Michael stayed genuine and made sure to keep his family in positive spirits with his stories and jokes.

Family truly was everything to Michael. He was an amazing father, son, brother and friend. His son, Joey, was his number one; to him, there wasn’t anything Joey couldn’t do, and the memories and interests they share together will be cherished forever. Michael was the most loyal caregiver to his beloved mother and was by her side at all times when she needed him most. He treasured the relationship he had with his sisters deeply and they cared for him graciously in his last year. He was also very thankful to all of his friends that took time out of their days to visit and spend valueless time with him.

A Celebration of Michael’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB on Friday, November 17, 2017 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Glenda Wert officiating. Friends and relatives are invited to share stories at THE ONION, 1702 – 23 Street North, Lethbridge, AB at 7:00 P.M.
