He was a loving Dido to six grandchildren; two great-grandsons; loving companion to Ann Pidwerbesky of Saskatoon; dear brother to Mike (Helen) of Prud’homme; and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by Ann’s family who were an important part of his life. <br> <br>He was predeceased by his wife Mary Storoschuk in 1976. His parents Peter Hryniuk (1977) and Mary (Dubyk) Hryniuk in 1988. <br> <br>William was born December 23, 1927 on the family farm 7 miles south of Prud’homme. He was very fortunate that on the farm yard lived his grandparents, Mike and Dora Hryniuk, who had emigrated from Ukraine in 1904. They were an important part of his life growing up. He attended Knapton School which was three miles away from the farm. During his early years he worked hard on the farm with his parents and brother developing a work ethic that served him well in life. Upon completion of school he took mechanical and welding courses. In 1959 he purchased four lots in the village of Prud’homme and opened Bill’s Auto Body Shop which he operated until 1992. Along with running the garage he also farmed. He married Mary Storoschuk in 1961 and raised four children. Upon Mary’s passing he raised his children with the support of his family. <br> <br>William was committed to his church and community. He served for many years as president of the church council and as sacristan. He was a charter member of Prud’homme Lions Club, and for a number of years chairman of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator in Prud’homme. He served on village council for a period and for many years as volunteer Fire Chief. He also was a member of the Knights of Columbus – St. Josaphat Kunesevich Council. He always supported his community in whatever capacity possible. <br> <br>Our father was a kind, respectful, gentle and honest person who worked hard to provide for his family. His faith and devotion to the Ukrainian Catholic Church and cultural traditions gave him strength in his daily life. He was a loving father, Dido, brother, uncle and friend and will be dearly missed. <br> <br>Prayers will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 7:00 pm from Dormition of the Blessed Mother of God Ukrainian Catholic Church, 120 – 105th Street West, Saskatoon.
