CHALUS - Steve Chalus left this world peacefully with his granddaughter by his side on January 22nd 2020 at the age of 94. Steve was born November 12th, 1925 on the family farm near Canora, Saskatchewan. He attended Chernowitz School until Grade 7. He married his wife Edna on October 16th 1955. They had two children Dave and Danny in 1956 and 1957. The family farmed first in the Dobronoutz District and then in the sixties in the Beaverdale District. In the early eighties they sold the farm and retired to Yorkton. Upon retirement, they took several bus tours visiting the Maritimes and the USA. They also travelled to Hawaii frequently. Steve enjoyed walking and going for coffee at the local McDonalds on Broadway for many years. They sold their home in Yorkton in 2017. Edna moved to the Yorkton & District Nursing Home and Steve moved to Bentley. Although they lived apart for a few years, Steve drove to visit her often and when he gave up driving, he would make sure he found a ride to visit her. Last spring, Steve moved to the Nursing home as well. Steve was always so wonderful to his granddaughter, Crystal. As a child Crystal spent a lot of time with him and Edna, they travelled as a family and went out for meals at only McDonalds. Up unto his passing, he still loved when Crystal brought him his favourite meal of all time, McChickens to the Nursing home. Crystal enjoyed spending time with Steve, he was an interesting man, who had sharp wit and a good sense of humour. He had a love of collecting napkins (because you never know when you could need one) and chocolate bar treats. He always had a stash. His son Dave passed this fall, but Steve's story wouldn't be complete without mentioning the bond and relationship they shared. If teasing is the measure of love, they truly loved each other. They were father and son, but also friends and if you were a fly on the wall, their banter together would make you chuckle. Steve leaves behind his wife, Edna Chalus (Shwedyk) of Yorkton. His granddaughter Crystal (Cortney) Solonenko, and his great grandchildren Jordann & Lyric of Stornoway. Steve was predeceased by his siblings, parents and sons Dave and Danny and daughter in law Linda. The funeral service was held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey officiating. Music played was Grandpa and Amazing Grace. The interment took place in the Garden of St. Luke with Cortney Solonenko, Marty Schrot, Ted Deneschuk and Lonnie Chupa serving as the casketbearers. Condolences can be left at
