GEORGE “BLONDIE” MIHALIK
1921 ~ 2014
George “Blondie” Mihalik, beloved husband of Mary Mihalik, passed away peacefully at the age of 93 on Friday, December 26, 2014 surrounded by his family, in Lethbridge, Alberta. Blondie was born, raised, and educated in Lethbridge where he worked diligently in the family grocery business, Mihalik¹s Food and Dry Goods, for over 60 years. Blondie is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Mary; two daughters, Linda (Jim) Zook and Debbie (Walter) Coyle; and four grandchildren, Alison (Pete), Alana (Brian), Megan, and James. He was predeceased by his parents, Andrew and Katie, two brothers, Joey and Eddie, and two sisters, Mary Nicolson and Katie Campbell. Blondie began his career at the age of five, when he could be found directing customers to the products they were looking for. He enjoyed delivering groceries to Mihalik¹s long-time customers with his horse and buggy, even when it was 40 below. Blondie, with Mary working alongside him, devoted his life to the grocery business, building up a solid clientele with his friendly attitude, and charming manner. The Mihalik name was synonymous with dedicated service and honest business practice. Blondie extended a helping hand to the miners and other workers during the hard times of the 1930s. He let them charge their groceries until they earned the money to start paying their bills. Blondie was a kind and generous man who made many friends in his lifetime. He was well liked and respected in his community and was active in the church, as well as in many service clubs and organizations. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and witty comments. He sincerely loved his family and was very proud of them. He will be very sadly missed.
