Ryan Scott Siwicki
We mourn the loss of Scotty, our son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Born in Dauphin, Manitoba, he then moved at two years old to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with his Mom, Mary Lee (McArthur), Dad, Ronald Siwicki and brother, Jason Siwicki. Scott started school at St. Francis School and then attended Holy Cross High School where he started and continued a few strong and lasting friendships. Scott had an interest in the operation of the newspaper business, especially The Star Phoenix, and once he had gained some experience, he decided to apply to the job he had set his goals for. At the Star Phoenix he started in distribution and worked his way up to a pressman in two short years. For Scott, these were the happier times with gained self-confidence, and benefits from hard work. He enjoyed being with family, and was especially close to his Baba and Gigi in Dauphin. He enjoyed the summers at Lake Dauphin, and his favourite hobby was fishing at the Assiniboine River with his Dad and Gigi. Another hobby Scott enjoyed was listening to a wide variety of music and amazing us with his knowledge of the words to many older songs. When Scott was ten he devoted time to his first puppy Hrudey, named after his favourite NHL goalie. They did everything together. Hrudey soon signed on for obedience classes and taught Scott how strong a German Shepherd was and that he could easily pull Scott up and down back lanes all winter on a sled. Scott was sad when Hrudey was gone to old age, but he got to love two more puppies before too long and will be missed by a little Coton de Tulear named Steevie Ray. Sadder times came with the loss of Joseph Siwicki, Scott's Gigi, and soon thereafter the illness of his Baba, Helen Siwicki. In his short life Scott truly tried to be helpful and he cared deeply for family and friends. We will miss you Scotty. In keeping with Scott's wishes, there will be no funeral service, instead a Celebration of his Life will be held from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2013, downstairs in McKague's Hall at Acadia McKague's Funeral Center, 915 Acadia Drive, Saskatoon, SK (306) 955-1600. A light lunch will be provided.
