Manchakowsky, Neil

1976 - 2021


It is with profound sadness and much love we announce the passing of Neil Walter Manchakowsky of St. Albert, at the age of 44 years.


He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Shawna of 17 years; daughters Jessica and Rebecca; Baba Lillian; parents Larry and Dorothy; brother Greg (Michelle); nephew Hunter and niece Madison; brother Eric (Anna); mother-in-law and father-in-law Cathy and Laurie Milsted; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Jenn and Josh Seinen; and nephews Jordan, Jacob and Jason; and of course, aunts, uncles, cousins, coworkers and friends.


Neil worked in the wine and beer making business at Creative Connoisseur for over 20 years and was currently in a career change as a second-year electrician apprentice at All-Type Electric. Thank you All-Type family for welcoming him in so warmly.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Jessica and Rebecca’s future post-secondary education fund. Please email [email protected] for more info on how to contribute.


We wish to thank Neil’s care teams in Edmonton and Calgary but especially to Dr. M. Oliver, who never gave up on Neil.
