GRYBA, Nastor Wasyl Bill
December 4, 1935 – July 25, 2016
We announce with great sadness, the passing of Nastor Wasyl Bill Gryba on July 25, 2016 at the age of 80 years.
He leaves behind his wife of 56 years Renate; children: Thomas (Lisa) and Kimberley; two grandchildren: Andrew and Spencer; brother Eugene (Mila); sisters: Natalie, Mary (Bert), Julie (Lawrence), Angie, as well as many nephews and nieces, cousins, and dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents John and Mabel Gryba and brother Martin.
He served 16 years with the RCAF and was employed as a Programmer Senior Systems Analyst at the U of A for 28 years. While studying full time for his Degree he also worked evenings as a projectionist. Nastor was a man of honour, hardworking, gentle and kind. He loved his family and enjoyed watching his children and grandkids play hockey and soccer. He was also a great fan of his daughter’s bands and loved country music. In his younger years he spent many hours volunteering with Air Cadets, Santa Anonymous, Golf Tournaments and marching bands. When someone was in need, he was there.
“We’ll deeply miss you my love!”
A Memorial Service and reception for Nastor will be held on Monday, August 15, 2016 at 10:30 am at Richmond Park Church, 9340-69 Avenue NW Edmonton, AB.
The family would like to thank Dr. Loree Larratt (Hemotology) and the staff at the U of A, I.C.U. and Nephrology Ward that took care of him during his long stay.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Nastor’s memory may be made to AAMAC.
