It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Dymetro Tesluk on January 26, 2020 at the age of 75. Dymetro was born on January 10, 1945 in Neutsch Krs. Darmstadt, Germany. He and his mother made the brave voyage across the ocean, eventually settling in Kirkland Lake in 1950. Dymetro spent most of his adult life working at, and later owning Spic n’ Span Dry Cleaners.
He is survived by his loving mother Walentyna Samojlenko, daughter Tanya Schumacher (Allen Frappier), proud and devoted Didi to grandsons Nicholas Schumacher (Sarah Gauld) and Christopher Schumacher, as well as their father Gordon Schumacher.
He is also survived by Tanya’s mother, Irene Pelchat, his Aunt Alla Sinizka and numerous extended family members in the Ukraine.
Dymetro was predeceased by his father Dimitrij Tesluk (1945), his step-father Ivan Samojlenko (2001), and many extended family members in the Ukraine. He will be lovingly remembered by his family and friends.
His family wishes to express their most sincere thanks and appreciation to Dymetro’s “Angels” in the Dialysis Unit, to the physicians and staff at the Kirkland and District Hospital for their wonderful care, and to Betty Smallwood and the Temiskaming Palliative Care Unit for all their support and caring during the last few days.
