Obituary for Cyril Allan Wrightsell

Mr. Cyril Wrightsell, age 94 years a resident of The Walford, passed away on Thursday, January 14th at Thunder Bay Regional Hospital.

Born on September 13, 1926, Cyril lived a full and enjoyable life. A natural athlete, Cy was part of the Pine Street hockey playing brothers. He excelled in playing both junior hockey for the West End Bruins and senior hockey for the Port Arthur Bearcats. During his hockey days he met Ruth, the woman he would later marry and share 69 years with. His love and devotion to her was especially evident during her final years at Roseview Nursing Home when he would make a point of visiting her nearly every day.

Cy was an avid and astute follower of the stock market from his teens and was especially fond of the junior mining stocks, he even did some prospecting. A graduate of King’s Business College, he and his wife Ruth founded and operated Wrightsell Brokerage. He also built homes including an apartment building in 1960. After selling the brokerage business in the late 60’s he joined the Canadian Grain Commission where he worked as an inspector until his retirement.

A long-time member of the Port Arthur Curling Club, Strathcona Golf Course and the Shuniah Masonic Lodge No. 287, Cy continued to maintain many active friendships throughout his retirement. He will be missed by his Friday Coney Island lunch partners Peter and Cliff and his coffee group of Gerry, William and longtime friends Len, Peter and Terry (recently deceased).

Cyril lived his life with strong convictions as a good father, a dependable provider and a reliable friend that you could always count on.

He is survived by his sister Shirley Leader (Howard) of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and his children Al (Renee) Wrightsell, Dorothy (Brian) Christie, Bill (Tish) Wrightsell and his grandchildren Jeff, Dan, Billy, Grace, Robbie & Christine along with 11 great grandchildren.

He is predeceased by his wife Ruth (2018), his parents Lamont and Ivy, sister Irene Law and brothers Gordon and Robert.

Our family would like to thank the many who cared and tended to our dad during his years at The Walford, and his most recent needs at the Transitional Care Unit of Hogarth-Westmount and Thunder Bay Regional Hospital.

Cremation has taken place. Internment and a celebration of his life will be announced at a later date. Online Condolences can be made at

To the Wrightsell family
Our parents enjoyed many social activities over the years and your father was the last of this group and era. I remember him sharing his wisdom and advise with me about the sports of golf and curling as I was taking them up as a youth. My condolences to your family
