We Remember

WOYTUCK, Allan Wayne

April 16, 1955 — December 27, 2015

Allen aka ‘Big Al’ Woytuck, of Kelowna, British Columbia, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 27, 2015 at the Kelowna General Hospital. Al was born in the city of North Battleford, Saskatchewan to Alex and Maria Woytuck.

Growing up Al enjoyed playing kick the can with the neighborhood kids, shooting BB or pellet guns at night for excitement, making things like Go Carts, exploring the outdoors and Boy Scouts. If anyone gave Al a challenge or a dare he would take it on without hesitation.

Al had an old school work ethic, working on many farms outside of town and as he got older school wasn’t cutting it anymore and he felt it was time to learn the real world. He gravitated to “breaking ground” in Saskatchewan. He took to machines like it was in his blood and ran circles around the Foreman. He quickly gained the respect of many peers. In the process of learning he was introduced to some of the biggest outfits in Western Canada and helped build many grid and highway projects in Alberta, B.C, the Yukon and North West Territories. One famous one he worked on was the Dempster Highway where the North got into his soul and he often mentioned that he was born in the wrong era because of his love of the North. He worked on oil and gas, mining, pipeline and crane projects. For the last decade, Al worked as a heavy equipment operator for a B.C Company called Pyramid Construction.

Al took continued education with welding and then became a Landman through Olds College which presented opportunities such as Instructor at Lakeland College in Ft. McMurray and as a Landman in the Banff area with the Alberta Government. He taught many peers and could operate anything he put his mind to with noticeable grace and poise.

In his spare time he enjoyed being around friends, fishing, camping, riding his motorcycle and drinking his Budweiser beer. Al’s smile could light up any room and his eyes alone could make you laugh. To know Al was to love him. He could fill an arena with all the friends he made along the way. When someone needed help he was first to lend his support. He donated to many charities. But Al was nobody’s fool, he had his hard times as well and everything he learned in life made him love the people around him even more. There surely exist many fond memories of this beautiful man. Al had strong spirit, and a bit of a crustiness that was charming in its own right. All of the well wishes in his final days meant a lot to Al and his family.

Al is survived by his son, Christopher Adam Woytuck, of Red Deer, Alberta; daughter, Laurissa Rae Rolls and her husband Daniel, along with their two children Joshua and Mayzie of Bli Bli Queensland, Australia; brother, David Woytuck, of Kelowna, B.C.; as well as his many loving aunts, uncles, niece, nephew and many other friends.
