JUSTIN DANIEL LYSACK It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden, tragic passing of our son and brother Justin Daniel (JD). JD was granted his angel wings on May 31, 2012 at the age of 20 years. Left to forever cherish Justin's memory are his parents Darrin and Maria Lysack (Clark), brothers Andrew and Carter, as well as family pet Princess, grandparents Harvey and Nancy Lysack, uncles and aunts Brian (Christie) Lysack, David (Melanie) Lysack, Ed Oviatt, and Audrey (Vern) Ross, cousins Samantha (Bryan), Gordon, Tanner, Anders, Annie, Mollie, Paige, Aries, Brock and Wyatt, as well as numerous family members, friends and teammates. Justin was predeceased by his grandparents Norm and Irene Clark and aunt Karen Oviatt. Justin was born July 9, 1991 and instantly captured our hearts. He was a busy, active child, often seen with a mini hockey stick in his hand, enlisting his cat, his Grandmother and his brothers to be his goalie. He quickly grew into a fine young man who was an amazing son, brother and friend. Justin attended Immaculate Heart of Mary School, MBCI, and Garden City Collegiate, graduating in 2009. Justin loved sports, playing soccer, hockey, baseball, sponge hockey and ball hockey through the years, but his passion was lacrosse. He had the honour of representing Manitoba six times at National Championships in both box and field lacrosse. He had been employed at Sleep Country Canada since August 2011 and enjoyed his job, forming amazing new friendships with his co-workers. JD loved to have a good time whether it was with friends or family; enjoying nights out with his friends, playing hide and seek with his younger cousins or Pass the Ace at family functions, or spending weekends in Gimli. With Justin's passing we remind others that his life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss him every day, especially his winning smile, he will remain forever in our hearts and will live on in the lives of others from organ and tissue donation. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Mary Wilson who worked valiantly with Darrin to help Justin until medical help arrived, the City of Winnipeg Fire and Paramedic Service, the staff at Victoria General Hospital Emergency, especially Lynn and Kevin and the entire lacrosse community who have honoured Justin's memory. A mass in celebration of Justin's life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, June 8, 2012 at St. John Cantius Church, 846 Burrows Avenue. A private interment will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Justin's memory to the following: KidSport, 145 Pacific Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3B 2Z6 or Right to Play Canada, 65 Queen Street West, Suite 1110, Box 64, Toronto, ON M5H 2M5.
