There is great sadness for us as we announce that on Tuesday January 30, 2018, our dad Randy Musyj passed away. One can only believe that turning, suddenly, he would have found himself reunited with our brothers Derek and Dylan, and with our mother Donna Musyj who predeceased him only 5 months ago. That moment alone would have made Dad very content with the new life that he has started.

It’s hard to describe our dad in just a few paragraphs. He was one of a kind. He had a keen sense of humor with a dash of sarcasm that made him the life of a party. He was able to make friends wherever he went. He successfully juggled many years of shiftwork at Southwestern Regional Centre with family life to be the best dad that he could be. Not only did he love being a father, but when his grandchildren Zayden and Carson came along, he was the best “Gigi” that we could have asked for. He was so much looking forward to his third grandchild who will be arriving soon and was always grateful that his boys were never far away.

We know that Dad often bragged about us to his friends…he was so proud when Zakry and Alisha got married and began a family. That pride shone through again when Isaiah and Brooklyn started their own family. And then there was Rebekkah…the daughter who he was “one” with…separated only by distance when she went off to school but always connected by love. His and Mom’s unconditional love and their belief in all three of us is what we have now to carry us through the next chapters of our lives.

Dad was only 57 years old. There was still so much that he wanted to experience in life, but he will still live on in us. He taught us well. He was predeceased by his Mom and Dad (Dolly and Alexander Musyj) and will be sorely missed by his sister Brenda Birokraly and his brother Bradley Musyj in Saskatchewan.

In keeping with Dad’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Friends and family are invited to the Blenheim Community Funeral Home where visitation will be held on Friday February 2nd from 3 – 5 and 7 – 9 p.m. A short service will be held at 7 p.m. with Fr. John Juhl officiating. Dad’s idea of formal wear was to change into a new golf shirt with the jeans he was wearing, so in honour of him, please dress “appropriately”!

One last thing…Dad had an admiration for the Chatham-Kent Hospice and although he didn’t get that far in his cancer journey, he would have appreciated it if you would consider donating to them in his name.

So sorry to hear that your loved one has passed away. I have special memories from Randy's college years. Along with myself, and our friends Henry, Sandi, Valerie, and others, were lots of contagious belly laughter, and a lovely surprise visit from him and Henry just last year. God bless all the family and friends and comfort you always as you remember him.

Zakry, Isaiah and Rebekkah, I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed your dad's sense of humour and his joy for life. He will be missed. Jan Mc.

May we offer our sympathies to you on the loss of your father. God bless his soul. Both Randy and Donna were very involved with St. Mary's and St. Anne's Schools when we taught there.

Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Your father and I attended St. Clair College and graduated in the same course. I remember your father as a kind, compassionate, hard working and respectable man. It was a privilege to have known him. My thoughts are with you and your family.

The Hoy family are so very sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. Your obituary words could not be more appropriate. I always marveled at how he and your mom held down full time Jobs and still made sure to be at every school event whether cheering or volunteering. I’m sure you both realize how special that is now that you have started your own family. Randy was very easy to like. Everyone was on a level Playing field with Randy. A great lesson for all of us. Rebekkah their lives will continue to inspire you to always be the best you can be. Reach for the stars girl. They will be beaming from above. We will keep all of you in our thoughts in the coming hours, days, months and years as you move forward. You are not grieving alone.

My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. I am a cousin and actually babysat your Dad when he was little. When he moved away from Amherstburg, we kind of lost contact, however I was very happy to see him a few months ago when we visited Uncle Isadore and cousin Judy. Your Dad so loved his family and he will be missed but you now have an extra angel in heaven to watch over you.

My condolences to all the family. May you find comfort in this time of sorrow.

Isaiah & Brooklyn So very sorry for the loss of your dear Dad father-in-law and carson's dear loving GiGi.. Randy was far to young but take peace in knowing his suffering is over and he has joined the love of his life Donna and their two boys.
