Obituary

Hurtak, Lewis (Sonny) Vince
1937-2022

Lewis (Sonny) Vince Hurtak of Sylvan Lake, 85 passed peacefully with his family at his side on October 14, 2022, in Red Deer.
Lew was born June 14, 1937, to Rose and Elias Hurtak in Hillcrest, Alberta and spent his childhood in the Crowsnest Pass. As a young adult he moved to Edmonton and attended NAIT. Lew lived in Leduc and Red Deer briefly, and eventually settled in Sylvan Lake. He had a long and rewarding career in the light and power industry attaining the position of foreman of the high line crew at the EL&P for the City of Red Deer, retiring after 39 years of service. Lew enjoyed hunting in his younger years with his dad and brother. Later in life he found immense joy raising Kerry Blue terriers with his wife. Lew was a voracious reader and could converse on any subject with great knowledge. Lew was kind, honest and caring, with a quick wit, always helping anyone in need whether they were a friend or a stranger.
Lew is survived by his wife of 41 years, Susan Hurtak, his son Todd (Cheryl) Hurtak, his daughter Thérèse (Hugh) Hansell, grandchildren: Tiegan, TJ, Liam and Chloé; four great grandchildren as well as his brother George (Marilyn) Hurtak and nieces Darcy (Mike) and Corrie (Dwayne). He will be greatly missed by all his family as well as lifelong friends from the EL&P and the City of Red Deer.
Lew was predeceased by his mother Rose Hurtak, his father Elias Hurtak and his grandmother Francis (Bubbi) Ruzek.

As per Lew’s wishes, a celebration of life will be held at a future date.
