It is with great sadness the family of Norman Mryglod shares the news of his passing on Thursday, August 18, 2020 in Weyburn, SK at the age of 82 years.
He was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Sally Mryglod; his wife Sandra; and his son Glenn.
Norm is survived by his daughter Theresa; his granddaughter, Alex; and his sister, Marilyn (John) Lewington; as well as numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Norman was born in Weyburn, SK on June 19, 1938 to Joe and Sally Mryglod. He attended school here through grade 12. He met Sandra while in university in Winnipeg and they were married in 1963.
As newlyweds, they settled in Weyburn, SK where he worked extremely hard to grow the business known as Mryglod Properties and later as Mryglod Steel. His endeavor resulted in a booming and very lucrative entity.
In 1963, they immediately began the construction on their first home. then welcomed and raised their children, Theresa and Glenn.
As avid golfers, they so enjoyed hitting the course. Norman and Sandra travelled the world. Hawaii remained their ultimate favorite destination and made sure to vacation there every year as it had special memories of wonderful times and many treasured lifelong friends. Fishing was also one of Norm's favorite past times, whether it was deep sea fishing in Hawaii or heading to Mainprize on their boat.
They worked tirelessly on fulfilling the dream of building their second home. The pride of this surely shone through.
In 1991, tragedy struck when their son, Glenn was suddenly taken in a horrific accident. The single most devastating, life altering grief for any parent to bare. The crushing pain never leaves your heart and that hole was never filled. Friends and family held them close to aid in the healing process. Norm is now reunited with Sandra and Glenn which gives us comfort.
Welcoming a granddaughter was an especially happy time for Norm and Sandra. His little "Angel" continually over the years, made him a very proud Gigi.
When cancer appeared and took its toll, he fought hard and never gave up. When the daily challenges became too great, he joined the Crocus Villa family. We are very grateful for the love, care and attention that was always shown by them, his many doctors, caregivers, nurses, friends and family. We will miss him immensely. Norman was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend.
As per Norm's request, no funeral service will be held.
A Private Family Interment will be held at Hillcrest Cemetery, Weyburn, SK at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, for family and friends so wishing, charitable donations in memory of Norm may be made to a charity of the donor's choice.
