Anthony M. (Tony) KOSTIUK

July 1, 1926 – July 3, 2003

We say goodbye to our beloved Tony, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.

He has gone to the sleep of death and will rest there until the resurrection day. What a glorious day that will be as Jesus said at John 5:28, 29 ‘’The hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out out.’’

What joyful reunions there will be in the earthly paradise of God’s Kingdom!

Tony just started his 77th year. He leaves his wife Shirley of Chilliwack; daughter and son-in-law, Penny and Don Harnish of New Brunswick; and three grandchildren and their spouses, Joanna and Vaughn Bennett, Greg and Lindsay Harnish, and Rebekah and Ron Allen, all of New Brunswick. Also survived by sisters, Eileen Blenkorne of Penticton and Helen Arcand of Chilliwack; nephew Les Arcand of Chilliwack; and niece Linda Andrews of Delta.

As Job said in chap. 14 vs. 7, 14, 15 ‘’For there exists hope for even a tree. If it gets cut down, it will even sprout again. And it’s own twig will not cease to be. If an able-bodied man dies, can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, until my relief comes. You will call and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.’’

Predeceased by daughter Pam; father Joseph; and mother Verna.

Memorial service will be Wednesday, July 9, 2003 at 7 p.m. from the Kingdom Hall, 46970 Yale Rd. E. Mr. Hall Wannacot will be officiating.

‘’Till we meet again.’’
