Wayne Allan Barrows

1964 – 2022

Mr. Wayne Barrows of Coutts, beloved husband of Mrs. Sandra Barrows, passed away suddenly at Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday, April 7, 2022 at the age of 57 years.

Wayne was born the only son of Russel and the late Rose Barrows in Milk River, Alberta on June 20, 1964. He attended elementary and junior high school in Coutts and later graduated from Erle Rivers High School in 1982, marrying his high school sweetheart, Sandra, only 4 months later in October.

At the young age of only 5, Wayne approached his mom to pray with him and to accept the Lord. His devotion to the Lord was lifelong, and he eventually became a registered Pastor in 1996. Music was also a major part of his life, beginning in elementary school and church continuing to adulthood. In 1983 he started playing with a Christian band named LOGOS led by Paul LaBelle. Wayne’s love of sports led him to coach basketball and many other sports for boys and girls.

Besides taking over the family farm after his marriage to Sandra, Wayne worked at many other professions, being a true entrepreneur from the time his grandma Fern bought him his first lawnmower at age 16. He owned his own janitorial business, landscaping business and was the owner and operator of Zestos restaurant in Coutts. He later studied and received his business license as an Exempt Market Dealer Representative. Being a Pastor, he also officiated many weddings and funerals over the years.

Besides his loving wife Sandra, Wayne is survived by his daughter Jalisa (Shaye) Tennyson; 3 sons Jayson (Christine) Barrows and their children Myla, Amora and Russel; Jamie (Nathalie) Barrows and their daughter Olivia; Jeremy (Angelica) Barrows; 3 sisters Deborah Kirley (Barry Wooten), Shelley (Ian) Baker and Cherie (Jason) Taylor; father Russel Barrows; sisters in law Beverley Erlendson, Sherry (Rodney) Pahl and Terri Dawn Weenk; brother in law son in law to Mabel Stirling; honorary “daughters”, exchange students Cici Shen and Alessandra Soares; as well as numerous nieces and nephews who he was a surrogate “dad” to if they needed him.

He was predeceased by his mother Rose Barrows, and mother and father-in-law Frances and Fred Mueller.

Wayne’s large and infectious smile made him many, many friends from all over the world. He will be dearly missed by all that knew him.

Walter Pashuk

1923 – 2022

Mr. Walter Pashuk, beloved husband of the late Mrs. Beverly Pashuk, passed away peacefully on April 12, 2022 at the age of 98 years.

Born in Poland, he immigrated to Canada in 1932 with his mother, brother and sister to join his father, who was already in Canada. The family settled in Enilda, Alberta. Shortly thereafter, their father was killed in a train accident. The family then moved to Magrath where Walter was raised. Life was difficult for the family; they worked in the beet fields and sold fresh vegetables to make a living.

Dad was trained as a welder, but his career took him in a different direction. He started working at Alberta Canning Company in Magrath, then rose to the position of Manager. He then held management positions at food processing plants in North Collins, New York and Vauxhall, Alberta. His position before retirement was at Empress Foods in Lethbridge.

He was an athlete. In early adulthood, he was an excellent baseball pitcher and was drafted by the Brooklyn Dodgers’ farm team. Since the pay was poor in baseball, Dad chose to stay in Magrath and continue working. Baseball was not his only interest. Dad earned many awards for golf, curling, hunting and fishing. In fact, for several years, he held the provincial record for the largest rainbow trout caught in Alberta. He held memberships at both Henderson Lake Golf Course and Magrath Golf Course, and he golfed until he was 97.

Dad was creative. During his career, he designed and reconfigured equipment to streamline food processing. In retirement, Dad spent hours in his garage on various projects, including creating furniture, making picture frames and building more than one hundred bird houses, many of which he donated to the Magrath Golf Course. Dad was most generous with his time and talents. Even into his 90’s he could be seen cutting lawns, shovelling snow or fixing things for his family and friends.

He is survived by his daughter, Wendy Fox (Allan); son, Robert Pashuk (Brad McCarty); his granddaughter, Ashley Fox (Cody Reid); his great granddaughter, Avery Reid (“Little One”); his sister-in-law, Jo Pashuk; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents; his wife of 58 years, Beverly; and his siblings Helen (Parasiuk) and Victor.

The family wishes to extend sincere appreciation to the medical staff at Chinook Regional Hospital and to Dr. R. Strank for the excellent care they provided to Dad.

At Dad’s request, there will be no funeral. In lieu of flowers, you may choose to make a donation to Lethbridge Family Services (Immigrant Services). Lethbridge Family Services (lfsfamily.ca)
