It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Alex Sholudko suddenly on Sunday, July 19th, 2020.
Alex was born on July 23rd, 1934 in Hyas, Saskatchewan. He was the youngest child and only son of Nick and Annie Sholudko. After many moves in his younger years, the family finally settled in Durban, Manitoba. During those year Alex received his education in Victoria B.C. and Durban.
After working on the farm, Alex decided to go and work for Manitoba Pool in 1960. By 1961 he was the elevator agent for the Pool in Durban. The year 1961 was a big year for Alex, besides the new job placement, he married the love of his life Anne Forsachuk of Bowsman.
Alex had many interests in life from curling, hunting, fishing, and camping, he was a true outdoorsman, however his pride and joy was his cars. He would make sure they were always in tip top shape and ready to go.
By 1975, Alex’s diligence and working hard, paid off when he was promoted to the Pool head Office in Winnipeg, so with Anne together they made the big more to the city. With the promotion ment Alex would be travelling the world, even selling to Germany, where he was the first seller there since the War. After Alex retired, at the age of 60, him and Anne would travel with bus tours, going on a yearly Northern trip from Rocky to Baker’s Narrow. He loved his fishing excursions, almost always catching the largest fish.
