STRIUKAS, Romualdas (Romas)


Passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at the Algoma Residential Community Hospice.

Romas was born in Kupiskis, Lithuania on November 8, 1924 and grew up with his siblings, the late Vytautas/Vitas(Regina), late Stase Rudinnskas(Jonas) and Ada Terese Martutaitis(Jonas).

He found the love of his life, the late Aline Lorette Mantha in Kiosk, Ontario and was a devoted and loving husband to her for 68 years.

A man of faith, intellect and a true gentleman, Romas set a wonderful example for his four boys Richard(Marie), Robert(Louise), Dennis(late Patricia), and Andrew.

He loved and was loved by his grandchildren Celeste(Darren) and Darryl(Stephanie), Daniel(Amanda), Ryan(Leigha) and Marc(Rachel), Kevin, Payton and Maicey, as well as great grandchildren Victoria, Collin, Gabrielle, Leo, Milo, Grayson, Jace, Dawson and Max.

Throughout the years he remained close to his in-laws, Aurel Mantha(late Pauline), late Jacqueline Levi(late Roland) and Leo Mantha and several nieces and nephews in Lithuania and Canada.

Romas enjoyed 10 pin bowling and was an avid bridge player. He always found time to give back to the community, volunteering at the Soup Kitchen for many years and preparing income tax returns for lower income recipients through the United Way for over 30 years.

While the family is mourning the loss of this beloved man, we are eternally grateful that he was part of our lives and that we were fortunate to be a part of his life. We have been left with the memories of a caring, kind, humorous, generous and supportive man who impacted each and everyone of us.

Thank you to Collegiate Heights for the many enjoyable years Romas spent with you. Deepest gratitude to Dr. Nicki Apostle and ARCH for your care and compassion.

Family and friends are invited to a Funeral Mass on Friday, August 28, 2020 at 11 am at Our Lady of Good Counsel (maximum 40 people, masks required), Rev. Paul Conway officiating. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
