KUZMYN, Stefan
Born Aug 21, 1919, in Ukraine. Stefan died in Toronto of heart failure Jan 24, 2008. A proud Ukrainian throughout his life, Stefan had been heartened in recent years to see Ukraine developing as a free democratic country. As a young man he was forced into slave labour at Nazi concentration camps for his Ukrainian underground activities. Over the postwar years he worked ceaselessly with Ukrainian nationalist groups to help liberate Ukraine from Soviet oppression. Settling in Kingston in 1955, he earned his living as a production worker at the Dupont plant there. He found a strong place in Kingston, both with other Ukrainians and the greater community. Many there were familiar with his role in the annual Ukrainian Folklore festivities. He travelled often to Ukraine, where he was honoured for his underground work. During Ukraine's 10th Anniversary of Independance celebrations, he was one of a handful of non-parliamentarians invited to sit on the floor of the Parliament chamber. In his declining years, he participated in family life when he could, his children having moved inconveniently away. Until her death two years ago, Yolanta GALICINSKI was a constant companion for many years. The Luciuk family were great Friends throughout his time in Kingston. But always, for him, there were Friends everywhere. He is survived by his sister Katerina, his children, Marika, Yuri, Natalia and Peter, and his daughter-in-law Kelly. His son Wasyl predeceased him, as did his separated wife Anna. His grandchildren are Russell and Holly. Stefan was buried in Kingston on Monday, Jan 28th in Saint Mary's Cemetery.
