Antonok, Tony

Timoffey Antoniuk was born on 03 May 1894 in Russia. He immigrated to Canada and found work as a mason/brick layer. With the name of Tony Antonok, he first enlisted in Edmonton with the 218th Battalion on 26 February 1916, service #279018. His occupation was given as teamster and his date of birth as 3 May 1898 although elsewhere in his record his age was given as 21. Tony was discharged from service in Edmonton in consequence of misconduct on 14 November 1916. A few days later, on 20 November, he enlisted with the 197th Battalion, service #913768. There are two sets of attestation papers, one indicating that he enlisted in Edmonton and the other in Winnipeg. On 21 December 1916, in Winnipeg, Tony married Mabel Kiton, his forename on the marriage record given as Larry. His pay was assigned to Mabel who was living in Winnipeg during his service. Tony was hospitalized in Winnipeg several times before being discharged in September of 1917 due to being medically unfit for service because of chronic rheumatism. Mabel, age 23, died on 8 November 1918 in St Boniface, Winnipeg.

On 11 May 1923 Tony married widow Annie Krutz who had four children.  He began working at the Ontario Minnesota Pulp and Paper Company in Kenora in 1926 as a mason.  His family lived on Main Street in the Rideout section of Kenora – a location very handy to the paper mill.  Tony belonged to the Legion and was a member of St. Nicholas church.  He retired in 1959.

Tony died on 15 January 1976 and is buried in St. Nicholas Church cemetery.
