Grampa was born in Pohorowetz, province of Bukovina, Austro-Hungarian empire.son of John, name of mother is unknown. He boarded the ship called the Lake Manitoba in Liverpool, England, and landed in Halifax, N.S. in June, 1906. Original spelling of last name, as found on the ship's passenger list is Kowalczuk, probably due to language communication , therefore name was spelled as the recording officer heard the name. Married Gaficia Ostapowich in the United Church Manse, Sheho, Sk. on Jan 26, 1909. This union produced 11 children. At the time of this writing, a daughter Mary Ripplinger is the only living child.

Grampa lost an eye in a wood sawing accident, but it never stopped him from being the most generous, loving father and husband and grandfather.

The photo of the 11 children is remarkable in the fact that they were all present for an occasion.
