Wlasenko IhorWLASENKO, Ihor - (April 17, 1965 – August 16, 2020)

It is with heavy hearts the Wlasenko family announces the passing of Ihor.

Cherished son of Luba and Serhiy (✝1996), much-loved brother of Oleh, Katherina, Olexander and beloved dyadyo (uncle).

Ihor will be dearly missed by our extended family and his many friends. 

Ihor was born in Toronto and moved to Oshawa with his family at an early age.

His lifelong love of nature was formed by growing up close to Lake Ontario.

Ihor was imbued with a gift of extraordinary intelligence, a critical astuteness and was an accomplished athlete. As an avid reader, he excelled in all his studies.

A life-long passion for music was passed on and nurtured in his niece and nephews.   

He graduated from the University of Waterloo (BA Econ ‘91).

Ihor travelled overseas many times. In 1991, he participated in organizing a national referendum for Ukraine’s independence in the Donbas region. In recent days, he was a hard-working and enthusiastic team-member of Safran Landing Systems.

Ihor will be remembered as a fun-loving person with a sharp wit and humour, a devoted friend and a wise soul.

May he rest in peace — Vichnaya Pam’yat’
