Obituary of Metro Fryk

Metro Fryk, beloved husband of Flo (nee Beynon) of 55 years, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at the age of 81 years.

Metro worked in and around the Alberta area, then started Metro Machine Works with Flo by his side in 1983 in Calgary. Repairing and manufacturing components for the Oil and Gas Industry, as a Heavy-Duty Mechanic and Machinist.

In everything he did, he worked hard, played hard, and slept fast. Not wanting anything to go to waste he gathered (with permission) all the crab apples around the resort to have Flo make into 20 pies. He was proud of his manicured lawn around their cabin at Hidden Valley Golf Resort, until the first flood in 2005. After renovating the cabin and lovingly restoring his lawn, you would always be treated to a “performance” of Johnny Cash or a game of crib, until the final flood of 2013 washed everything away.

Metro is survived by his loving wife Flo; children Carolyn (Garth) Praestegaard,  Sharene Macsymic, and Lawrence (Donna Hreys) Fryk; grandchildren Dayna (Eric Kruse) Praestegaard, Austin Praestegaard, Matthew (Kelly) Macsymic, Vicky Macsymic, Pam (John) Martin, and Ben (Lyta Sarasith) Humphreys; great-grandchildren Avery Kruse, James Leong, Caitland Hreys, and Naveena Sarasith; and siblings Fred and Leo (Joan) and sister-in-law June. He was predeceased by his first wife Sharon Nystrom; parents Dmytro and Paraska (Pearl); and siblings Bill, Alex, Nick, Annie, Mervyn, Mike, Benny, and George.

Metro’s family would like to express their heartfelt thanks and gratitude for all the thoughtful expressions of love and kindness by relatives and friends during their time of loss and bereavement.

A private Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, October 23, 2020 at Hope Community Covenant Church (245 Brent Blvd. Strathmore, Alberta) at 2:00 p.m., by invitation only.
