SUBMITTED PHOTO - John PyrytJohn Pyryt was born November 30, 1944, to Frank and Mary (Kempkowski) Pyryt in Hamtramck, Michigan. He died on March 5, 2022, after a long battle with liver cancer. John served as a radioman in the US Navy, aboard the minesweeper USS Acme. He moved to California and later to Oregon in the 1960's. John worked as a night security guard and at Timberline Trailers. When he moved to Sandy, he met the love of his life, Debra Meyer. They married in 1973 and had their son John F. Pyryt. John worked at Reynold's Aluminum in Troutdale until it's closing, then went to work at Boyd's coffee. John was an avid outdoorsman, with fishing as a high point (which he relayed to his parents, influencing their move to the area.) He also enjoyed camping, hunting, and gardening. He still liked chopping wood later in his life, which he regularly gave away. Living in the same neighborhood for over 44 years, he was often seen walking his dog and visiting neighbors. He enjoyed adventures with friends, trips home to Michigan, and stopping in states along the way. John is survived by his wife Debbie, his son John (Stephanie), three grandchildren: Tori, Tyler and Jackson. His sister Janet and brother Jim, and niece JoAnne. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother Joe. A graveside service was held March 22, 2022, at Willamette National Cemetery.

Donations can be made in John's name to Mt. Hood Hospice. Sandy Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
