Zenon T. Mykytyn, born on the 3rd day of July and resident of Camillus for 62 years has passed away at the age of 68.
Born in NY City, Zen retired from New Process Gear after 33 years. Home Depot in Dewitt became his home for the next 7 years. He was a communicant of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church and a member of UAW local 624. Spending time fishing, boating, and sitting by the campfire at his Clear Lake camp were his passions; second only to his beautiful grandchildren. He was a friend of all and was on call to lend a hand at a moment's notice. He was a rabid NY Yankees fan and enjoyed a cold beer.
He was predeceased by his parents, Michael and Constance (Maziar) Mykytyn.
Surviving to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 44 years, Elysa and his son Zenon P. Mykytyn of Colorado, his brother Peter (Mary) Mykytyn of Syracuse and sister Lily I. Mykytyn of Camillus. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Madeline and Jacob Mykytyn, two nephews, Andrew (Liz) Mykytyn and Michael (Mary K) Mykytyn, Skylar his great niece and Andrew Crim his nephew. His two Labrador retrievers Abbie and Zuzu will miss him very much.
Calling hours will be held on Sunday December 13th from 4-6 PM at the Macko-Vassallo Funeral Home, 1609 W. Genesee St. A funeral service will be held at 6:00 PM Sunday at the funeral home. Funeral Services will be Monday at 9:00 AM at the funeral home followed by interment in the Greenlawn Cemetery, Warners, NY.
The family would like to thank Hospice of CNY for their kindness and compassion.
