Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I stayed at St. Al’s for Grade 7 because I wanted to have Mr. Bryski as my teacher. He was my favourite teacher at St. Al’s. Many fond memories of Mr. Bryski, but mostly of the phys ed classes, track out in the school yard, gym classes in the auditorium next door & of course, jam pail curling. Deepest condolences to your family. 💔 - Posted by: Bonnie McNab Morris (Student - St. Al’s 1967) on: Nov 14, 2021

  • My condolences to the family. Mr. Bryski as I knew him, made a huge impact in my teen years. He was a teacher who really connected with his students. He once took us on a field trip to the Courthouse. I enjoyed it and once I graduated I got a job there. I retired from there after 41 years. During that time I saw Al (still Mr. Bryski to me) with other students, before he retired, still enjoying what he was doing. His smile was what you would see every time. I also enjoyed the journalling he did. He had a talent and he put it to good use. He was a one of a kind, well respected man. May he rest in peace and I can guarantee he will be watching over his family. - Posted by: Kelly Golembiski (Student from the 70’s) on: Nov 13, 2021

  • Pat and family, I was so shocked and saddened to see in todays Free Press, the obituary and picture of Al and read of his passing. I am so sorry to see and read that. I had no idea Al was ill or had any problems with his heart. My deepest condolences to you and the family. Al was a very nice guy and I was always impressed with his kind warm ways, and his deep love and affection for you, Pat, which he displayed so clearly and earnestly. My heart goes out to you all in this loss of a husband and father. Sent With much sorrow and memories from the past.

  • I was very privileged to have Mr. Bryski as a teacher at Springfield Heights. He was one of my very favorite teachers. I was so pleased to see him join our “grew up in east Kildonan page”. I loved reading all his stories. Will keep his family in my prayers. - Posted by: Terry-Lynne Hause (nee McPherson) (Student) on: Nov 13, 2021

  • My Deepest Thought and Prayers are with you all. Mr. Bryski was my Grade 6 teacher at Springfield Heights Elementary School in 1970. He left an impression in my heart that words cannot describe. Later in time our paths would cross and I would say, 'Hi Mr. Bryski.' and he would respond, 'You can me Al.' With my reply, 'No, I cannot call you Al, I will always call you Mr. Bryski.' So Mr. Bryski, I am thinking of one word that you gave and in return received by many former students and that is RESPECT. Until our paths cross again Mr. Bryski. GOD BLESS - Posted by: Kimbrance AP Kozak (Former 1970 student) on: Nov 13, 2021
