Farmer, municipal official.

Born near Strathclair on 8 March 1913, son of Stephen Antonation (?-1944) and Tekia Antonation (?-1920), he farmed in the vicinity of Shoal Lake for most of his life. He served as Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Shoal Lake from 1958 to his death. During this period, he ran unsuccessfully in the 1962 and 1966 provincial general elections and the 1965 and 1968 federal general elections. He was President of the Manitoba Good Roads Association (1978-1980), Chairman of the Shoal Lake Hospital Board, and a Director of the Union of Manitoba Municipalities. In recognition of his community service, he received the Canadian Centennial Medal (1967). He died at Shoal Lake on 20 August 1985 and was buried in the St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery.
