Stanley Gordon Watrich

December 23, 1940 - June 24, 2023
"Precious is the site of the Lord Is the death of His saints" Psalms 116:15

Stan was our beloved president and the co-founder of The Master’s Foundation, who for many years, gave tireless effort and dedication to the people of Ukraine. It isn’t possible to count the projects undertaken by The Master's Foundation under his leadership.

His cousin and co-founder, Henry Watrich recalled, “It was the late 1980's, we were returning home on a dilapidated Aeroflot flight when Stan, with tears in his eyes, turned to me and said: We must help them! I've realized my calling!” This was a call to ministry in Ukraine which Stan passionately pursued for next 40 years.

In one of his last correspondences, Stan stated: “It has been a 38-year journey of miracles that I had never dreamed of. I am ever grateful to God that he would take a country bumkin off a farm in Glendon, Alberta and place such an amazing calling on me to serve in Ukraine. I am leaving with indelible memories that will be cherished forever! My sincerest thanks to the board of Masters for all their support and pray every success and God’s will on the person that He chooses to pick up the baton and continue serving Ukraine!”
