Obituary of Larry John Wasylik

On October 11, 2022, Larry passed away surrounded by family at the Red Deer Regional Hospital at the age of 70 years.

He was predeceased by his parents, Mike and Nellie Wasylik; mother and father-in-law George and Marie Keller, brothers-in-law Ken Keller, Thomas Keller, and George Vilcsak, sisters-in-law Carol Zaharia and Grace Keller; nephew Clayton Wasylik; niece Cindy Zaharia-Sherrington, and numerous special aunts, uncles and relatives.

Larry was an engineering technologist with Alberta Power, Alberta Agriculture, and United Farmers of Alberta. He can be credited with many agricultural, residential, and commercial buildings and he loved being of service to all the people he met throughout his career.

He loved woodworking and shared his talent with gifts to family and friends afar. He was devoted to Catholic Education having been a trustee with East Central Catholic Schools for 25 years and serving on the board of directors for Alberta Catholic School Trustees Association for a number of those years. His woodworking can be found in Catholic Schools and offices across the province. Spending time with family and grandchildren was always his delight.

A Celebration of Life will be held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 6 McMillan Ave., Red Deer, AB, on Wednesday, October 19th at 1:00 p.m. Internment will immediately follow at Horn Hill Cemetery. There will be an early supper in the church hall after the internment for all of us to remember and share our lived experiences with Larry.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Friends of St. Jerome’s Catholic School in Vermilion, Alberta, as this school was near and dear to Larry.
