Matthew David Huszar

JULY 27, 1986 – DECEMBER 17, 2011

It is with the greatest sadness that we share the news that our beloved son and brother, Matthew David Huszar, was found deceased in Vancouver BC, over 2 years after his disappearance on December 16, 2011. Matthew was born and raised in Lethbridge AB, graduated from Catholic Central High School and continued on to graduate with an honours degree in geology from the University of British Columbia. At the time of his disappearance, he was working as a geologist with Pretium Resources Inc. in Vancouver. Matthew was a free spirit and adventurer with a love for the outdoors. He enjoyed his time working in gold exploration in the far north as well as exploring the beaches and mountains of coastal BC. He had a passion for many outdoor pursuits including skiing, snowboarding, surfing, rock climbing, hiking, biking and sailing. He was in the process of restoring a 49 foot sailboat with a dream of sailing around the world. He always seized new adventures and made them his own.

Matthew will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him. He was very committed to his family and friends and leaves this world a better place for having enriched all our lives. You left us much too soon but you will live on in our hearts forever. He is survived by his parents, Rod and Danny Huszar of Shirley BC , his sister, Sarah, of Harleysville PA and his sister, Rachael, of Victoria BC, as well as his grandparents, Simon Huszar and Gus and Donna Virkutis and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends

A private cremation will be held. We invite friends to join us in a Celebration of Life memorial and beach ceremony on January 18th at 1PM, at the Craidelonna Lodge in Shirley, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice.
