Kelvin John Suk
March 4, 1969 - March 22, 2024

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Kelvin John Suk due to an ongoing illness. He was 55.

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Kelvin leaves to mourn his older siblings; Ken (Helen) Suk of Calgary, AB, Cathie (Stephen) Ostapchuk of Oakville, ON, and Colleen (Gary) Korzan of Surrey, BC; his nephews Jordan, Nate, Nicholas; his nieces Natasha, Halina, Kaitlyn, Kimberly, and Chloe. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

He formed life-long friendships while attending Crestwood Jr. High and Ross Shepherd High School in Edmonton, where he also enjoyed playing hockey and football. Post-Secondary Education included Azusa Pacific University in California, and Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton, where Kelvin took a graphics course and formed his own company, working with theatre groups in various production roles. He joined Cine Audio Visual company where he further developed his technical and creative skills. Needing time away from the digital world, he then worked for UPS and Canada Post. For the past seven years Kelvin enjoyed serving customers as a Digital Home Technician for TELUS. He was often called upon by family to oversee videotaping and audio/visual tasks for both celebrations and times of remembrance.

Kelvin was a kind soul, known for his caring and thoughtful deeds. He regularly engaged in friendly chats with neighbours and customers and is fondly remembered as a gentle-man with a kind disposition. He carried stunning attributes of creativity, humour, a brilliant mind, and a tender heart. He was the one who would help those who needed it, and he certainly gained much experience caring for his aging parents and then his sister Caroline. Kelvin had a strong will, especially noticeable in political debate, but was also willing to humbly learn from others. He was artistic, loved music, guitar, and cooking up some fine cuisine. His strength in making perogy dough was a huge asset with his mom and the other ladies at the Ukrainian Baptist church which Kelvin and his family attended for many years. Among Kelvin’s favourite pastimes was attending pancake breakfasts on Canada Day and watching his share of romcoms with sister Caroline. Together they especially loved the theatre, supporting their talented cousin Melanie when she performed. He had a special bond with his nephews and nieces on various levels - from playing guitar to sharing the love of cooking.

Kelvin left us far too early and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is now with his parents, John and Nettie, sisters Marianne and Caroline Suk. He is safe in the arms of Jesus and in perfect peace.

A private internment for immediate family will be held at Beechmount Cemetery.

Kelvin’s Celebration of Life will be held on May 3, 2024, at 1:00 pm, at Trinity Funeral Home (10530 116 Street, Edmonton, Alberta) all are invited.
