June 11, 1987 - November 08, 2013
Joseph was born Thursday, June 11, 1987 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, The Pas, Manitoba. He graduated from MBCI June 27, 2005. Joseph went to Brandon shortly after graduation to work and live for 5 years. While in Brandon, Joe welcomed to the world the joys of his life, son Hayden and daughter Asia. In 2009 Joseph came back to The Pas. While in The Pas he worked at the Opasquia Times, RMW Delivery, Fas Gas, Alouette Hotel and Arctic Beverages. At each of his jobs Joseph was the one to keep everyone smiling. He always had a smile while working and lifted the spirits of those around him. Joe was excited to begin his employment at Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting in Snow Lake and started his 1st year of apprentice electrical at Lalor Mine. Joseph’s classmates at Red River Community College credit Joseph with their success in completion of their first 10 week course.
He was a young man who enjoyed his children, family, friends and life. To Joseph, family meant everything. He was always helping out brother Willie and Dad Joe on the farm. If you asked Joseph about his children his eyes would light up. He was always ready to share stories of what ‘Asianator’ was up to. Joseph was a friend to many. If you needed something, help or an ear he was there. Joseph was the ultimate volunteer, lending a hand with his mom during Trappers’ Festival Jr. Queen events, a lifesaver at Trappers’ Beerfest and helping at any other event if you asked.
Joseph was known by everyone not only because of his bright smile but also his willingness to ‘chat’ with anyone. Karate was one of Josephs passions and at his first National Karate Championship his coaching staff received numerous compliments on Josephs energy, skill and he quickly became known as Manitoba’s ambassador. Joseph also enjoyed reading, comics, playing games with friends inside and out and was always up for a challenge like the bow he was learning to shoot. He was a regular on the football field Sundays in The Pas and was always game for an adventure with his cousins.
Joseph passed away unexpectedly, Friday, November 8, 2013, at the age of 26 years.
Joseph is survived by his children Hayden and Asia; his parents Joe and Linda Kryschuk; brother Willie Kryschuk and sister Ashley Kryschuk (Mathieu); nephew Charles-Mathieu; Grandmas Aldea Kryschuk and Beulah Pranteau; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
