An interment service for Alvin Oystreck will take place in the Spring of 2020.
Alvin and his twin brother were born on December 26, 1933 in Rhein, SK. He went to school, graduated from Yorkton High School, and worked for Christie's Funeral Home.
Alvin married Faye McLeod in Weyburn in 1960. As a family, they moved to Melfort where Al worked as a geriatric nurse. Following that they moved to Vegerville where Alvin worked in Park Memorial as a funeral director, and a couple years after that they transferred to Edmonton and adopted 3 children. In 1969 the family moved to Armstrong BC, where Alvin worked for Garden Chapel. He then bought that funeral home, changed the name to Mountain View Funeral home, and continued to work there for several years. While living in Armstrong, Alvin was an avid curler and loved being out participating in the community.
He moved back to Saskatchewan in 1982 and began working at Canada Post in Yorkton, eventually transferring to Melville where he worked at the Post Office until he retired.
Left to cherish his memory are his brother Emmanuel and wife Adeline of Yorkton as well as his adopted children, Trevor, Teresa and Bill, all of Calgary. Alvin was predeceased by his twin brother John and four other siblings deceased in infancy, as well as his parents, Peter and Pauline.
