62, of Campbell River, BC, of the late Victor and Anne Klukewich, died suddenly on September 21, 2007. He is survived by his son, Troy Klukewich, daughter-in-law, Deborah Leah Cunnington, sister, Melyana Klue, and niece, Daria Howenstine.
He was an alumnus of the University of Saskatchewan. His long career in the mining industry began in Thompson, Manitoba. During this time, he divorced, retaining sole custody of his son. He never remarried.
Duteous and responsible, he quickly rose through the ranks and became a mine planning engineer. His work took him to Botswana Africa, Greenland, and numerous locations throughout Canada. Outside of work, he was an avid gemologist and collector.
A citizen of the world, he visited South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Greece, Italy, England, and Brazil. Gregarious, approachable, and a man of great integrity, he made many friends during his journeys.
His first love was flying. An avid pilot, he traversed the length and breadth of North America numerous times in his Mooney or Cessna. In the later years of his life, he called Campbell River, BC home. He cherished his family and leaves behind a wide circle of friends.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 3rd, 2:30 pm at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, 228 South Dogwood Street, Campbell River, BC V9W-6Y7.
