September 12, 1946 - July 20, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden death of Byron Hamrlik, at the age of 75 years, who passed away Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at the Health Sciences Centre.


Byron was born on September 12, 1946, to Edward and Agnes Hamrlik, in Hodgson, MB


He leaves to mourn his passing his loving and caring daughters, Angel (Donald); Brittany (Chad, Jamison); Lauren (Kelly); grand-daughter Rayne; sister Valerie.  He will also be sorely missed by his relatives, friends, neighbours, and lifelong schoolmates workmates that he kept in constant touch with throughout the years.


Byron was predeceased by his loving wife, Wanda, of 44 years; his parents Edward and Agnes Hamrlik; father and mother-in-law Louis and Reta LaRocque; sister Donna Hamrlik; brother-in-law Stewart Botwright; sisters-in-law, Doreen Letexier, Dawn LaRocque, and Tracy Vandersteen.


Byron attended grade schools at Lee Lake, and Marble Ridge, Manitoba, getting his high school education at Fisher Branch, Manitoba.  In his early years he enjoyed working alongside his father on the family farmstead until deciding to take a trades course in welding in Winnipeg and getting a job there.  He was employed at J. R. Wire Inc. for most of his working career as a welder but became an accomplished machinist for them which he enjoyed even more-so because it challenged his sense of creativity.  He and his family continued to enjoy the farm property as their country get-away visiting with other family and friends for many years.  Being a man of action, he became a superintendent of a small apartment building after retiring from J.R. Wire. He finally fully retired in 2021.


At this time cremation has taken place.  An interment service will be held at 11:30 am, September 10, 2022 at Hodgson Cemetery, Hodgson, Manitoba, followed by a fellowship at the Hodgson Community Club.


In the meantime, the family kindly requests relatives and friends to honour Byron’s memory by sharing photos and memories using the comments section on this page.
