Steve Hinkewich suddenly passed away on Wednesday, October 6th at Holy Family Home at the age of 93. Born in a tiny farm house in Libau, Manitoba in 1928, Steve liked to refer to himself as a 'Depression Baby' who had 5 brothers and 3 sisters.

He was deeply devoted to his Holy Trinity Church and the committees he served on.
