It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bruneau Joseph Chopik. Bruneau passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at the Canora Hospital on September 1, 2020 at the age of 84 after a brave battle with cancer. He was born March 31, 1936 to John and Katherine Chopik in the district of Plain View, Sask. He was predeceased by his parents, twins Bernadette & William (at birth), brother Frank, and brother in laws George Reed and John Suwala. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Marilyne, sons Patrick (Heather) Brent and grandchildren Zane and Aften, brother Stanley, sisters Julia Reed and Gloria of Kelowna, B.C. and sister Louise Suwala of Melville, several aunts and many nieces and nephews. Bruneau attended Plain View School and graduated from St. Henry’s in Melville. He was employed for 43 years at GM dealerships starting at Morrison Motors in Melville, than Korbs in Yorkton, Midwest Motors in Regina, one year in Gravelbourg, Hausers and Wheatons in Regina and ending at Canora Central Motors. Bruneau retired in 1998 and moved to Burgis Beach full time. He loved the lake and spending time and looking after his grandson Zane. He cherished the little things his granddaughter Aften created for him. He enjoyed having coffee and wine in the gazebo on the deck with friends and neighbors. He will be sadly missed but not forgotten. Due to Covid 19 there will be no memorial at this time. We would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Koubi, Dr. Djan, RN Shann Lanstad, and he rest of the nursing staff at Canora homecare for the great care and support that they provided.
