June 15, 1966 - April 15, 2021

It is with great sadness we say “au revoir” to our husband, son, brother and dear friend, Daniel, who passed away on April 15, 2021 after a lengthy illness at the St. Boniface Hospital. 


Lovingly remembered by his husband Gonzague; mother Frances; sisters, Cathy (Alf), Carol, Maureen (Chris), and Wendy (Mark); brother-in-law Roy; and sister-in-law Laurie. He was predeceased by his father Dmytro; an infant brother, Metro Jr.; and sister Eileen.

Daniel worked in Home Care as well as at the Health Sciences Centre as a nurse, and with the Manitoba Nurse’s Union as a Labour Relations Officer. As a caring person, whom others could turn to, he was admired for the strong role he played in advocating for nurses and the profession.  Nursing colleagues depended on his knowledge to guide them and MNU will be honouring his contributions at their Annual General Meeting in April 2021.

Friends and colleagues recall his abundant generosity. Whether it was about his love and knowledge of nursing, his love of travel or his wicked sense of humour, Daniel had a story to tell! Many will remember him picking up the tab for lunch, or a Starbuck’s coffee, or buying a gift for one of the long-term care children and their parents at the Children’s Hospital.

In lieu of flowers, donations in honour of Daniel Kushneryk may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society. No formal service will be held, and cremation has taken place.
