With broken hearts we announce that our beloved Louie – husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, passed away on Tuesday, February 20, after a long battle with cancer.
Left to hold dear memories of Louie are his wife Joni, and 5 children: Susan (Francis) LaRoche, Louanne (Malcolm) Houghton, Michael (Eduarda) Spak, Jody (Tammy) Spak, Johnny Spak, 9 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and his sister Annie Ewanchuck in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He was predeceased by his parents Michael and Irene Spak, who immigrated from Ukraine, his 2 brothers Walter and Johnny, and his sister Nel.
The love of his life was his wife Joni and then his 5 children. He met his soul mate Joni when he came to BC from Saskatchewan in 1955. They married in 1957 and this year would have celebrated 61 years of marriage.
Louie was a positive, happy, spiritual man who lived for his family. He loved the outdoors and in his younger years he spent time hunting, camping, waterskiing (on one ski), and always entertaining his family and friends with his guitar and songs.
Joni and children want to thank with all our hearts the staff at Ponderosa Lodge for their loving care and attention they gave to our dear husband and father. We would not have been able to go through this stressful time if it wasn’t for the genuine love and kindness they showed him.
There will be a memorial service for Louie on Saturday, March 3, 2:00 PM at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1985 Curlew Road in Valleyview.
