He was proudly married for 50 beautiful years to Jacqueline (Scandrol) Ezyk that would produce three loving children and six wonderful grandchildren.

Also, Mr. Ezyk dedicated 35 years to the Lower Burrell Flyers Youth Football Organization as a head cook when the organization went to football camp in Somerset. Mr. Ezyk enjoyed what the game of football provided for life lessons. He absolutely loved watching the Lower Burrell Flyers, Burrell Buccaneers, Pitt Panthers and Pittsburgh Steelers. He was a season ticketholder for the Pittsburgh Steelers for almost 40 years. Besides football, he liked to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins. In retirement, he liked to take day trips within Pennsylvania, to Ohio and to Florida to visit his son's family. He really enjoyed his hobby of working in the yard every day during his retirement years. Mr. Ezyk's absolute favorite moments in life were when he was surrounded by family.
