We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Philip Lucyshyn and his partner Lillian Wills at their home in Broderick, SK on February 6, 2021.
Phil was born in Saskatoon in 1939 and grew up on the family farm west of Peterson, SK. After finishing school he moved to Swift Current where he began his career with the Government of Saskatchewan. Work took him and his family to Outlook in 1966 until retiring to Broderick in 1987.
Phil was an avid hunter and he enjoyed going to the horse races in Saskatoon. Every summer he would follow the New York Yankees and in the winter his Montreal Canadiens. But most of all he liked playing endless games of cribbage with his sons and grand-daughter.
Phil is survived by sons Lloyd (Margo) and Douglas (Donna), granddaughter Danica and sister Diane McGurk (Garnet) as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family members and cherished friends. He was predeceased by his wife Carol, parents Anton and Ella Lucyshyn, brother-in-law Dan McGurk, father-in-law Harold Parrish, mother-in-law Amy Parrish, daughter-in-law Jeanette Lucyshyn and niece Shari Parrish.
He will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by his family and friends.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Phil's memory to the Parkinson's Society of Saskatchewan or Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. Arrangements are in care of Cherished Memories Funeral Home in Martensville, SK (306-242-7888)
