Obituary

Andrew Kristof
(November 26, 1927 - July 4, 2019)

Andy Kristof passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 4th, 2019. He is survived by his three children: son Brent (Lorretta) Kristof; daughters Patricia (Rick) Hall, Karen (Bruce) Walls; grandchildren: Natalia (Dell), Sophie (Carlo), Alison (Nolan), Megan (Megan), Erin, Michael, & Mitchell; nephew Dale (Margaret) Kristof; niece Susan (Bill) Ashby and families, as well as good friends.

Along with his mother (Mary Kristof nee Zarik)) and brother (Steve Kristof), Andy travelled from Kosicka Bela, Slovakia to reunite with his father (George Kristof) in Flin Flon, MB when he was only 8 years old. Education and life-long learning were very important to Andy. Other than completing his last year of high school in Winnipeg, most of a chemical engineering degree in Vancouver, and working a couple years as a surveyor in British Columbia, it was in Flin Flon that Andy made his home. It was here that he learned to speak English, went to school, played hockey, formed lasting friendships, was married to Adeline Kristof (nee Fyck, from Calder/Yorkton, SK) for 57 years, raised his children, and worked for HBM&S (Assay Lab, Metals Office).

In his younger years, Andy spent many seasons curling and playing tennis. He was active with St. Paul’s and then St. Ann’s Knights of Columbus, as well as the Boy Scouts of Canada.

In retirement, Andy and Adele could often be found working in their garden, picking berries, or walking on the boardwalk around Ross Lake. Now Andy had more time to be an avid armchair sports enthusiast! They enjoyed spending time with their children and grandchildren across Canada as well as taking trips to Mesa, Hawaii, Jamaica, and Slovakia. Reunions with dear friends from various parts of Canada at the Robin Hood Motel in Victoria, B.C. highlighted their winters.

Andy will be fondly remembered for his gentlemanly ways, love of family, and quirky sense of humor. His guests always felt welcomed by his big smile and endearing hospitality. He had a special passion for numbers and science, especially chemistry, physics, and space. His polite, yet competitive nature will be missed. “After you, I’m first!”

Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dadson’s Funeral Home and to everyone who supported us with flowers, prayers, messages of comfort, and plentiful meals. We truly appreciate the many people who cared for Dad these past few years: Nurse Practitioner Amy Sapergia-Green, Dr. Glover, Dr. Stacey, Flin Flon Hospital Emergency and 3rd floor staff, Northern Lights Manor staff, Homecare, Meals on Wheels volunteers, Father Paul Bringleson, Knights of Columbus and Catholic Women’s League. A special thank you to Mavis Hassel, Yves Rowe, Lois Fisher, Gord Lau, and Marlene Fenske for always being there. Your kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.

If you wish to make donations in Andy’s memory kindly consider the Canadian Cancer Society, the Heart & Stroke Foundation, or the Alzheimer’s Society.

Wishing you comfort and many good memories at this time. It was an honour and pleasure to service and spend time with you dad in my Home Care role. He was always so polite and wanting to share his suppers! we enjoyed his garden and stories from his past. He missed his wife dearly and loved and spoke of his children and grandchildren when asked about their younger days. He looked forward to the visiting, suppers and Skyping. He took time to ask about my family as said we all worked too hard! Share your memories often, it keeps them in our hearts. He was a wonderful role model. Take care. Jane and Guy Row.
