Roy passed away at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital July 23, 2018 following a serious illness.  He was born to Bill and Olga Tacknyk and spent his whole life in Kenora, Ontario.  


Roy was pre-deceased by his parents, Bill and Olga, and his wife Sharon Tacknyk.  Left behind to mourn are his wife Darlene, daughter Lana (Lyle), and grandchildren Ashley and Brenden, and his sister Mildred.  He will also be greatly missed by his cousin and best friends Ron and Nadean Tacknyk; his fur baby Sassy and his special niece Wendy Licence. Roy spent the majority of his working career in the Kenora Paper Mill until his retirement.  When he wasn’t in the mill he was hunting or fishing and enjoying the outdoors.  


As per Roy’s wishes, there will be no funeral service.  A private family interment will be held at a later date. The family would like to say a special thank you to the nurses and Brent in the ICU at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital, for their tremendous efforts and support.
