Memorable Manitobans: Walter Michalchyshyn (1909-2000)

Baker, community volunteer.

Born at Bychkivtsi, Ukraine on 24 June 1909, he emigrated with his family to Canada in 1923, settling in Portage la Prairie. He was a baker and, in 1948, he bought the bakery in Shoal Lake, where he became a valued member of the local business community, until they moved to Winnipeg in 1959. Walter was proud of his Ukrainian descent and a devoted member of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, serving as a cantor in churches and contributing greatly to the building of Ukrainian Catholic churches in Portage la Prairie, Brandon, Shoal Lake and Winnipeg. For many years, he was a participating member of the Parish Council, Men’s Club and Seniors Club at St. Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, St. Nicholas Mutual Benefit Association and the Brotherhood of Ukrainian Catholics, as well as serving in community organizations.

He died at Winnipeg on 1 September 2000.
