Cecil Metro Kristalovich

March 30, 1954 ~ June 11, 2021 (age 67)


It is with great sorrow to announce the passing of Cecil Kristalovich at 67 years of age. A beloved father, brother, uncle and friend passed away on Friday, June 11th, 2021, while at the Brandon Regional Hospital.

 Cecil was born on March 30th,1954 in the Harrison Park Municipality near Sandy Lake, Manitoba to Michael and Ada Kristalovich. He resided in Sandy Lake and Alexander, Manitoba for most of his years.  For over thirty years Cecil worked in construction.  Over those years he formed many friendships with a variety of people.  Whenever he wasn’t working, he could be found at Sandy Lake, fishing, hunting, sitting around the fire at the cabin with his family and all the friends that came with them. He always enjoyed a good game of cards and would spend hours playing. Cecil was always there to lend a hand when someone needed help with a project.  Most of those times he found it was a good time to use this as a lesson for his children. He always took the time to explain everything, usually in great length and detail, as were most of his stories.  As his children grew, he took pride in their accomplishments, and helped them whenever possible.

Cecil is survived by his former wife, Dayle Kristalovich, predeceased by his son Derek Kristalovich, survived by his daughter Dana Kristalovich, (Curtis), grandchildren Elliott and Nolan.  He is survived by his siblings Sylvester Kristalovich, Elsie (deceased), their children Keith Kristalovich (Margie), Myles Kristalovich, Deanna, child Sonya, Kevin Kristalovich, Shirley Kristalovich, and Sherry Kristalovich (deceased).  Lawrence Kristalovich (Beverly), their children Karen Kristalovich (Christain), son Alex, Lisa Mosquin (Dan).  Stephanie Cerny (Richard), children Adelle Henderson (William), children Ethan, Scarlette, Stella, and Michael, Glenn Cerny, children Sienna and Riley, Veronica Price (Robert), children Colin and Carter. As well as many extended family and friends.

Even though he will be thoroughly missed, his life lessons, and the joy he brought to others over the years will always be remembered through memories we will all share together.
