Thomas Albert Cybulski
January 1, 1942 ~ December 8, 2023 (age 81) 81 Years Old
With broken hearts, we share after an unexpected and brief hospitalization Tom Cybulski passed away very peacefully surrounded by his beloved family.
He will be greatly missed by his loving wife, Irish Lassy and best friend of 59 years, Mary (Kelly), and his cherished daughters, Josephine/Jo-Ann Cybulski (Ray), Angela (Stephen) and Nadine (Eddy), his grandchildren, Thomas (Alysia) and Halina Golka, and Nezja, Deklan and Adelyn Jermol.
He will be fondly remembered by his sisters-in-laws, Anna Leost and Angelene Cybulski, brother-in-law, Robert Laberee (Bonita) and many nieces and nephews.
Tom is predeceased by his parents, Anthony and Anna (Rouble) Cybulski and 11 siblings, Lawrence, Rita Laberee, Rev. Sister Anna, Stell MacPhail, Marcella Fleurie, Edward, Michael, Bronis, Andrew, Walter and Anthony, as well as his Ottawa Senator’s buddy and brother-in-law, Claude Leost and sister-in-law/”second mother”, Florence Cybulski.
Born and raised in Killaloe, Ontario, he was a small-town boy at heart living and working most of his life in the Ottawa Valley area. After attending St. Andrew’s High School, he began his career wearing many hats in the logging and lumber industry and in 1974 he joined the Ontario Provincial Police to ensure a good life for his family. He had several postings and promotions during his policing career starting as a Constable in Bancroft, then a Sergeant in Killaloe, then Detachment Commander in Whitney and retiring in 2003 as a Senior Investigator with the Policing Standards Branch.
As a devout Catholic, he participated in many ministries of the church and continued to share his talents writing a monthly lecturer’s report for the Knight’s of Columbus.
As a competitive hockey player in his youth, Tom was an enthusiastic armchair coach for the Ottawa Senators. He had many hobbies throughout his life including: fishing, hunting, golfing, watching the Jays, baking bread, playing cards and listening to fiddle jigs.
Tom was particularly proud that he and Mary raised independent, kind, educated and hardworking daughters while living in Eganville, Bancroft and Barry’s Bay. He was very pleased when each of them wisely chose husbands that honoured and respected these attributes.
An avid reader, he loved learning new things, tinkering with technology, and was often known to search “The Google” sending healthy tidbits, FYIs and sharing jokes and smiles.
While Tom’s job forced him to be an extrovert, he was happiest when spending time with Mary, his family and friends. We always knew he loved us very much and we are forever grateful to have had the time to say the things we needed to say and will carry that comfort with us always. Dad’s final words were, “I love you all very much. God bless you, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit Amen!”
