GARY ERIC NYSTROM 12-Feb-1942 – 16-Jun-2020.
The Nystrom family is devastated to announce Gary’s passing on June 16 after a long battle with prostate cancer. He leaves behind his wife of 43 years, Pat (nee Barclay), his son Daniel (Debbie) and daughter Devon (Ian). Proud papa to Nicholas, Alexis and Garrett.
He joined the North York fire department in 1972 and retired as a Captain with 35 years of service. He was extremely proud that both Danny and Devon followed in his footsteps. He got hooked on rowing as a teenager at the Fort William (Thunder Bay) rowing club and in his 50’s participated in the Masters rowing with the Toronto Argonaut Rowing Club. He loved hockey and was the president of the Southern Ontario Firefighters Hockey League. He also spent years as an executive of the North York Retired Firefighters Association.
A Memorial for Gary will be held at a later date.
“The memories bring back memories bring back you” Rest In Peace Gary Nystrom
Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends from the RTFFA.
