Mr. Holowchuk was my grade 5 homeroom and Phys Ed teacher at Victoria School. I have not forgotten the patient instruction he provided out on that big field such that I could throw a perfect football spiral. Sometime that year I collected a Hot Wheels car the same as his 69 Camaro! It was such a pleasure to phone him about four years ago to share these memories from 1970, and he was pleased that I did. May he rest in peace, such sad news.
