Tribute

JOSEPH “DOC” MYKIETYN

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Dad, “Didi” and “Great Didi”, Joseph Frank Floyd Mykietyn.  Joe was born in Kelvington Saskatchewan on June 18, 1925 to Michael and Ksenka  Mykietyn,  being the youngest of five children.  He passed away peacefully with his family by his side on May 10, 2016 in Trail BC.

This very special man, husband, father, grandfather “DIDI” and great grandfather leaves behind his four children, Jay (Joy), Gay La Juan (John), Danné (Glenn), Dawn; 9 grandchildren, Joseph (Hazel), Andrea, Patrice (Jason),  Rosanna, Mykyle (Rachelle), Nika (Kirk), Madison, Candice (Kenny) and Jessica  (Andrew);  2 great grandchildren, Kaden  and Nella.  He is predeceased by his loving wife of 45 years, Patricia Lasca Mykietyn, his parents and his one brother and three sisters.

“Doc” was a dentist serving the community of Trail for over 30  years, specializing in oral surgery at the Trail Regional Hospital and orthodontics as well as general dentistry.  Joe gave his heart and soul to volunteering in the community of Trail as President of the Trail Smokeaters Hockey Club from 1969-1974, and the Rotary Club of Trail with over 50 + years of perfect attendance.  He was a proud member of Corinthian Lodge No. 27 and Past Associate Bethel Guardian of Jobs Daughters in Trail.

Joe loved fishing, hunting, golfing and skiing in the West Kootenays and throughout beautiful British Columbia.  He loved taking the “Silver Bullet” camping and travelling.   In the latter years of his life, you could often see Joe playing a game of solitaire at the Waneta Mall or Safeway whilst waiting for a ride home.

The family would like to thank Dr. Hii and other health care providers, staff on the third floor medical wing at KBRH and the staff at Columbia View Lodge Special Care Unit for making Dad as comfortable as possible in his last days with us.

A funeral for Joe will take place on Thursday May 19, 2016 at 11 am at the Trail United Church, 1300 Pine Avenue, Trail BC with burial to follow at Mountain View cemetery.  For those unable to attend the funeral, livestreaming of the service is available that day by connecting on the internet with the link www.thompsonfs.ca Bill Clark with Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements.  You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca.
