Eternal memory – Theodosij Buyniak


Dorohi Podruhy i Druzi,

It is with great sadness that we inform you about the passing of Mr. Theodosij Buyniak, one of the Ukrainian Youth Association of Canada’s most prominent leaders since its origins. Druh Buyniak was President of the National Executive for four terms, beginning in 1953 and later on from 1967-1974. Under his leadership, recognizing the need for a summer camp, in 1954 CYM Canada purchased camp Veselka and he became ‘komendant’ of its first-ever summer camp. In 1967 he became President of the UYA Toronto Branch, a life-long active member of which he remained to his final days. In 1973, at the X UYA World Congress, he was awarded the IV level ‘Suspilnyk’.

Following his active years in CYM, druh Buyniak led the League for the Liberation of Ukraine for many years as its President. Furthermore, druh Theodosij was well known as the President of Buduchnist Credit Union.

We extend our deepest condolences to his children Borys and Adriana (Paul) and his grand-children Nataliya and Mark.
