Obituary

Nestor Myska passed away in Stonewall Hospital at age 88.

Nestor will be missed by his sister Olga Dreger, brothers Albert (Joyce), Peter of Brisbane, AU and sister-in-law Mary Myska. He was predeceased by his sister Mary Morrison, brother Rudolph Myska, father Michael Myska, mother Jennie Myska and Mom Anna Myska, brothers-in-law John Morrison and Wilfred Dreger, and two nephews. He is survived by six nieces and nephews, their children and offspring.

Nestor was born in Winnipeg. When he was two Jennie passed away. Soon after, the Myska family moved to Gordon, Manitoba. Nestor attended East Rosser School and then Isaac Newton High School by driving to Winnipeg with Olga in the family 1939 Ford.

Nestor worked in the Gordon district and in the early 1950’s in the family hotel in Laurier, Manitoba. He then began a career operating drag lines and cranes. He excavated dugouts in southwestern Manitoba and built the initial grade for the road to Bissett. He spent 25 years with Litz Cranes erecting and wrecking throughout Manitoba and adjacent provinces.

In 1966 Nestor purchased a house on Main Street near the North Perimeter. In 1975 he acquired farmland southwest of Gordon and began farming while still operating cranes. He built a farmyard and in 1983 moved to the farm. Nestor retired from Litz in 1993 to farm full time. He spent his summers going to auction sales with a circle of close friends, acquiring used items of all sorts and had an auction sale of his own in 2016. Nestor was an innovator and fixer, able to make old equipment run.

Nestor regarded family and friends highly and always attended family gatherings such as Christmas and Thanksgiving and generously provided from his large garden. He attended weekly coffee/chat gatherings with neighbours.

A family and friends celebration of Nestor’s life will be held at Stonewall Quarry Park Sunday, October 20 at 2:00 pm.
