                   Bernhard Victor (Vic) Falk                      

April16, 1944-May 26, 2022  

Bernhard Victor (Vic) Falk of Brandon passed away suddenly at his home, surrounded by family, on May 26, 2022.  The youngest child of Bernhard (Ben) and Margaret (Schellenberg) Falk, Vic was born in Portage la Prairie on April 16, 1944.  He grew up on the family farm at Westbourne, MB and received his education in Westbourne and later in Winnipeg.

Vic was pre-deceased by his parents, Ben and Margaret Falk, step-mother Sarah (Borne) Falk and infant son Victor Falk (1988).

He is survived by his loving wife Cheryl (Leach) Falk, daughter Sharon (Damian) Falk-Hamilton, grandchildren Lyndsey, Savannah and Benson Hamilton, sister Gert (Hank) Neufeld of Stonewall and brother Dave (Sandra) Falk of Portage la Prairie.  He will also be remembered by niece Stephanie (Henry) Verhoeven, nephews Brant (Brenda) Neufeld, Daryl Neufeld, Darcy (Lori) Falk and their families and others who were his family and whom he loved during his life journey.

Vic had many jobs during his life in the sales and service industry that took him from various Manitoba locations to Alberta and back.  Along the way he made many friends, always enjoying the camaraderie shared.  This ease with making friends was also evident when he made his first trip to Mexico.  Cheryl has special memories of how they were soon being invited to share a meal with local families and returned on future trips to renew these friendships.  Vic was a former member of Kinsmen and Rotary Clubs and enjoyed volunteering with these groups and also with the Wheat Kings, Special Olympics and the Westman Annual Christmas Dinner.  His favourite “job” was dressing up as Santa for various local events.

A celebration of Vic and Cheryl’s lives will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. at Shady Lane Tea Room, Trans Canada Hwy, east of Brandon.  The format will be a come and go reception but for family and friends wishing to be there, a brief program will be held at 2:30 p.m.

Donations in Vic and/or Cheryl’s memory may be made to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6 or to Funds for Furry Friends, 740 Rosser Ave Suite 208, Brandon, MB R7A 0K9.

Grieve not for me.

Remember the best times

The laughter, the song

The good life I lived while I was strong.
