Memorable Manitobans: Daniel Stasiuk (1914-2013)


Born on a farm in the RM of Gilbert Plains on 17 August 1914, one of twelve children of Nykola Stasiuk and Maria Basaraba, he attended Halicz School, Dauphin Collegiate, and Normal School. He later received BA and BEd degrees from the University of Manitoba. He began a teaching career in 1935, interrupting it for service with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. Returning from military duty, he was the Principal of Tolstoi School (1948-1950), Happy Thought School (1952-1956), and Gunton School (1957-1958). He moved to Winnipeg where he joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Division, retiring in 1973. He died at Winnipeg on 27 September 2013 and was buried in the Glen Eden Memorial Garden.
