Obituary

RYCZAK -
It is with great sadness and cherished memories that we announce the peaceful passing of Metro Ryczak; beloved husband, father and Gege (Guido), in Yorkton, Saskatchewan on May 17th, 2019 at the age of 85 years.
Metro was born in Buchanan Saskatchewan November 10, 1933 to John and Mary (nee Woicichowski) Ryczak. He was the second oldest in a family of six boys. He attended grade school at Vasolovitz country school. After the passing of his father, Metro maintained the family farm with his mother and two brothers Bill and Steve. In his spare time, Metro was an active member of the Vasolovitz School District and the lead accordion player of the "Ramblin Rose Band" with his brothers, Steve and Bill.
Metro was introduced to Iris Terlesky in 1958 during the wedding of Bill and Adeline Chupa, which both Metro and Iris were members of the wedding party. They were married on May 20th, 1961. They lived on the family farm near Buchanan for 10 years and eventually settled down on their own family farm by Springside in 1971, and remained there for 37 years. They were blessed with seven children; Kenneth, Brenda, Kelly, Darcy, Dale, Bernadette and Derek.
Metro's true passion was farming which included grain, livestock, haying and attending countless auction sales. Til this day, no one truly knows how much was spent at these auctions sales. We do know he enjoyed a saw dust burger or a hot dog with coffee at every sale. Metro loved Sunday afternoon crop checking, fishing and hunting. He looked forward to his yearly Armit fishing trips and moose hunting in the fall. He spent many hours playing cards, attending country dances, listening to Ukrainian music and socializing with friends. After a hard day's work, Metro loved reading the Western Producer and catching up on the local and world events by watching the CTV and CNN news.
He retired from the family farm in 2006, moved to Canora in 2007, with the final move to Yorkton in 2010.
Metro was blessed with twelve grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. He looked forward to seeing his grandchildren come for a visit and they each have their own special memories of Gege.
Metro is survived by his wife Iris of 57 years, son Kenneth (Bev) Ryczak and their children Krystal (Brennon) and Miranda (Mackenzie). His daughter Brenda (Kyle) Abday and their children, Kristin (Kyle) and Meagan (Eddy). His son Darcy (Pam) Ryczak and their children Justin (Tanya) and Chelsea (Kyle). His son Dale (Tammy) Ryczak and their children Dekea and Jaggar. His daughter Bernadette (Shaune) Sichkaruk and their children Matthew and Samantha. And his son Derek (Kim) Ryczak and their children Skylar and Parker. Great grandchildren Broden, Avery, Kennedy, Tessa, William, Callie, Charles, Grady, Noah and Francis. His brother Steve Ryczak, sister in-laws Victoria Ryczak and Darlene Ryczak and many nieces and nephews.
Metro was predeceased by his son Kelly, parents John and Mary, his brother's Steve (in infancy), Bill, Michael and Peter.
The Funeral Service was held on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey, Certified Celebrant officiating. The eulogy was shared by Derek Ryczak & Bernadette Sichkaruk and a poem reading was presented by Samantha Sichkaruk & Skylar Ryczak. "All who knew Metro Ryczak" were considered as honourary bearers. Serving as a cross bearer was Chelsea Ryczak. The interment followed in the Garden of Gethsemane at Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Justin Ryczak, Matthew Sichkaruk, Shaune Sichkaruk, Kyle Abday, Kyle Parker and Wayne Popowich serving as casket bearers.
