Mr. Len Marcischuk was born November 16th, 1938 in the municipality of Strathclair, MB. His departure from us occurred early morning the day of Wed. Oct 14th, 2020 in Lac La Biche, AB. Len was a long time resident and active community member of Ft. McMurray, AB. Len moved to Ft. Mac in 1973 & worked for Suncor 20+ years with a Steam Ticket (Power House) & Millwright (Mine Maintenance). In his early years he attended Tec-Voc H.S. in Winnipeg, MB. Len was also enrolled in HMCS Military Service (MB) with no deployment. Later Len attended Keyano & NAIT College respectively to achieve his Red Seal status for his trade which allowed him to work in other provinces after his retirement from Suncor. Len’s tireless efforts to support his community involved service with all kinds of organizations where ever he lived. Len’s community service was recognized & he was awarded the Senior of the Year for the City of Ft. McMurray in 2016! Quite an achievement! Len has survived many major forest fires & floods in the area over the years. Len also received an award from the Ft. McMurray Fire Dept in appreciation for his life saving efforts on March 06/1990.
Unfortunately, time & persistent medical setbacks caught up with Dad. His dedication to his community and gregarious nature will be missed by all!
Len Marcischuk is survived by his sons Darren & Jayson, two grandchildren Darren James (DJ) & Shaelyn, siblings Jean Ford (Families) & Robert (Families), sister-in-law Helen (Families), brother-in-law – Barry Kalvin (Families). Pre-deceased by Mother Nellie (nee Stackiw), siblings Ernie, Donald, Eva, & Shirley.
Take care & go in loving peace Dad! Say hi to Taco as you’re in a better place now! We will all miss you.
Love from all your friends & our Families!
