Oct 17th, 1945 – June 15th, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Emil Hrycewich announces his passing after a brief battle with cancer, on Thursday June 15th, at the age of 71 years.
Tears are falling, hearts are breaking, and not a moment passes without feeling a sense of loss. Such a strong, generous, loving family man. Emil will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 49 years, Phyllis, his children Randy (Nicole & Jaxon) & Rhonda (Jason) Tomlin. Emil’s pride & joy were his six grandchildren, Drake, Connor, Kohl, Tukker, Miranda & Dayton. Emil leaves behind 3 siblings Orest (Gloria), Adelle (Matt) Dmyterko, Shirley (Irwin) Reiger and the Alexander’s, honorary family in Australia, Bill & Jenny, Vannessa (Justin), Leesa (Lance),Troy (Mary), Donna (Phil) and 15 grandchildren. Emil was predeceased by his sisters Angie (Don) Gray, Jean (Mike) Petroski, parents Mike & Annie, niece Laurie Gray and nephew Michael Hrycewich. He leaves behind many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Honesty, integrity, honorable & talented have been the recurring words used to describe this wonderful man. Emil was a proud & humble man. Owner/Operator of Hrycewich Contracting for over 50 years, he loved his work as a contractor. He took great pride in the work he did and was well respected. He enjoyed working, reading and spending time with his family. He always put everyone else first.
“A heart of gold stopped beating. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. God knows you had to leave us, but you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you the day He took you home. To some you are forgotten, to others just a part of the past, but to us who loved and lost you, the memory will always last.”
Thank you to Dr. Grant Del Begio & staff at RIH and the Hospice House. Special thank you to brother in-law Ron Talerico of Golden for his multiple trips, love, support & presence through Emil’s final days. We will forever be grateful for your selflessness.
There will be no service at Emil’s request. Should friends desire, donations in his memory may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.Print This Obituary & Condolences
