Obituary for Mike Iskiw

Mike  Iskiw
ISKIW, Mike -
Passed peacefully at the Humber River Hospital on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at the age of 92. Dearly beloved husband of the late Anne. Beloved father of Kenneth Iskiw and his wife Mary. Loving Dee Dee to Michael and his wife Alice, Jonathan and Tania. Great Dee Dee to Quinten, Olivia and Mason. Dear brother of Rose and predeceased by Annette, Bill, Eugene, Sylvester, Peter, Nick, Mitch and Helen. Mike Iskiw worked hard for his family, a virtue in continuance with his father, who was among the first wave of Ukrainian immigrants to the Canadian Prairies. As he and his nine brothers and sisters moved into adulthood, he traveled the railway tracks and found himself in Toronto, Ontario. Having had his experience in various professions supporting his wife (Anne) and son (Kenneth) he soon opened and managed Ossington Tire in 1961. This family-run business became a trusted part of the neighbourhood and brought Mike great happiness and connections with the community. Alongside theses connections, he was one of the founding members of St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church and a 3rd degree member of the Knights of Columbus. Mike Iskiw was a family man at heart who loved to sing and dance. He was well known for being a great host and loved to see others happy, which was the ultimate goal for his hard work. With the encouragement of his son, he started to travel and found a love for cruising. He also had a passion for gardening and landscaping, which connected him with his family roots. He will be greatly missed.
