Henry Hudy of St. Paul Lutheran Home, Melville, Sask., beloved husband of Pauline Hudy, entered his eternal rest with his daughter by his side, on Sunday, July 12, 2020 at the Pasqua Hospital in Regina. He was 82 years of age.
Henry was born Nov. 30, 1937 in the McKim district to Andrew and Lucille (nee Slaferek) Hudy.
Henry attended Pulaski Plains School and farmed with his dad until moving to Estevan to work on the oil rigs. He returned to the farm in 1958.
Henry married the love of his life, Pauline Burant, on April 11, 1959 at Precious Blood Church with Father John Molnar presiding. He bought his own farm in 1966 and worked hard to provide for his wife and six children.
Henry was a quiet, hard working man who was proud of his children and enjoyed talking farm talk with his boys. If he couldn’t figure something out, he would leave it and think about it until he found a way to get it done. We learned a lot from watching dad fix things. We worked hard on the farm, but grew up better for it. He had a great sense of humour with a twinkle in his eye and was generous to a fault. Memories of him working for a farmer stooking wheat sheaves, just for a bicycle frame. He took us fishing, fencing and to stack bales on a rack he would never tie down. We were also his rock pickers while he pulled the stone boat. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and enjoyed snowmobiling. He enjoyed card games and family get-togethers where his grandchildren gave him a smile. We have learned a lot about life from this strong, quiet, hard working man. Rest easy, your work is done.
Henry was predeceased by his parents; brother Dennis; daughter-in-law, Cherrilyn Hudy; in-laws, Peter and Victoria Burant; sisters-in-law, Rosalyn, Dorothy and Evelyn; brothers-in-law, Albert, George, Glen, Bob, Willard and Burt.
Henry leaves to cherish his memory: wife Pauline; children, JoAnne (Bob Dolan) Hudy; Gwen (Glen) Smith; Neil (Trina Stachowich) Hudy; Andrea Rosin; Adrian (Tamara) Hudy; Travis Hudy; 16 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; sister Dorothy; sisters-in-law, Francis, Vicky, Myrtle and Anne; brother-in-law, Peter (Pat); cousin Ron.
