Notice biographique

John and Wasyl (Bill) Hluschak were brothers who immigrated to Winnipeg from Ukraine as young men. Ella Hluschak (nee Kolytolo) was born in Winnipeg of immigrant parents. John and Ella met and married in Winnipeg. Eugene was their only child. John emigrated in the late 1920s and worked as a blacksmith in the Canadian Pacific Railway yards. He was also an extremely talented gunsmith and inventor. In his retirement years, he worked at Assiniboia Downs as a masseur for jockeys. Wasyl came later to Canada and established a tailor shop on Selkirk Avenue. His shop became a favorite gathering place for men in the neighborhood. In the 1940s, he contracted tuberculosis and spent several years in a sanatorium in the South-western United States. Ella developed her skills as a seamstress and sewed wedding dresses for a local dress shop. In later years, she became a dietary supervisor at the Victoria General Hospital. Eugene spent his formative years in the North end of Winnipeg. He went on to study history and anthropology at the University of Manitoba. Upon graduation, he was employed in the correctional system in Manitoba, and later in social work in Winnipeg, before embarking on a career in travel writing. His travels took him all over the world -€“ South East Asia, Europe, United Kingdom, Africa, and the Caribbean. Wasyl died in the early 1970s, Ella in 1983, and John in 1989. Eugene met an early death at the age of 54 in 2004. The family set a remarkable example of hard work, ability and determination to succeed.
