Cyril "Cy" Wiskar

Cyril (Cy) Wiskar passed away peacefully at the Cypress Hills Regional Hospital on September 29, 2017 in Swift Current, SK at the age of 93. Cy is survived by his wife, June; children, Brenda (Clarke) Hillier, Steven (Roberta) Wiskar, and Donna (Scott) Watson; grandchildren, Brett (Amber), Cherokee, Kaitlin, Shawn, and Zoey; brother, Harold (Dorothy); sisters-in-law, Islay and Joyce; brothers-in-law, Albert (June) Carleton, and Elmer (Alwyn) Carleton, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, William and Lily; brothers, Frank, Raymond and Fred; and daughter-in-law, Shelley. Cy was born on February 17, 1924, number 3 of 5 boys, in Abbey, SK. He completed High School in Swift Current, SK. He joined the Navy in Calgary, AB and was discharged in 1945. He moved back to Swift Current, SK after completing his mechanics in Vulcan, AB in 1948. He worked for Newton Motors, Halliburton, owned the Hilltop Service Station, and retired from the Saskatchewan Department of Highways in 1987 after 33 years of service. He married June in 1951, welcoming 3 children into their home, and celebrating 66 wonderful years together. They remember him as a loving father who always spent quality family time with them at the lake. Cy's mechanical talents and love of antique cars took him and June on many tours with both the Swift Current and Regina Antique Car Clubs. They spent 15 winters in Arizona - and in later years British Columbia - enjoying year round golf and happy hour with friends and family. One could always count on Cy for a game of Cribbage or Rummy.  A Celebration of Life was held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 1:30 P.M. at the Days Inn Banquet Hall, 905 North Service Rd. E., Swift Current, SK. Donations can be made to Dr. Noble Irwin Foundation, 2051 Saskatchewan Dr. Swift Current, SK S9H 0X6. The family would like to thank Dr. Steenkamp and the staff of the  Cypress Hills Regional Hospital for their outstanding care.  Warren's Funeral Home were entrusted with the arrangements.
