In memory of Frank Rytir
October 16, 1946 - February 19, 2017
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Frank Rytir. Frank was born in Karlovy Vary, Czechoslovakia to Anna and Karel Rytir. He came to Canada in 1968 where he built a beautiful life.
He is survived by his loving daughter Rebecca, son-in-law Kevin and adored grandson Charlie. He loved his nephews, Thomas and Daniel, and many family members in the Czech Republic, especially his nephew Karel, his wife Alena and their three children. He was predeceased by his cherished wife Victoria Cowan and sister Anna.
Frank leaves many dear friends including those from his career at Canadian Pacific Airlines, CP Air and Canadian and from his many years of boating. Frank was happiest spending long summer days on his beloved boat Victoria Anne with family and friends. He was an incredible craftsman who could make anything and created a beautiful home for his family.
A celebration of Frank's life will be held on Friday, March 3rd at 1:30 pm at the West Vancouver United Church, 2062 Esquimalt Ave., West Vancouver.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the
Paul Sugar Palliative Support Foundation or to Covenant House.
