Obituary for Russell Todd "Russ" Pryga

Russell Todd "Russ" Pryga
Russell “Russ” T. Pryga, 52 died unexpectedly Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, in Chicago, IL. He was born June 10, 1965, and grew up in Mosinee, WI, the son of John Jr. and Barbara (Hollingsworth) Pryga.

Volunteering and giving were a huge part of Russ’s life. He spent many hours volunteering at “GroceryLand”, a food pantry for those with HIV/AIDS, and other charitable organizations to ensure he helped make a difference to those in need. He was a Packer fan, loved his dogs, loved to travel and played in the Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association volleyball league. Everyone who came in contact with Russ experienced his generosity, kindness and compassion. He had the ability to make other people smile even when he was sad. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Survivors, besides his parents, John Jr. and Barbara, include his daughter, Kelly (Josh) Pryga-Ahrens, Hamel, MN; and his sister, Debbie (Kurt) Strohmeier, Saint Paul, MN. He was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents.

Memorial services will be at 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, at Beste Funeral Home, Mosinee. The Rev. Marilyn Lange will officiate. Visitation will be from 2 p.m. until time of services all at the funeral home. Online condolences can be made at www.bestefh.com.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Russ’s name can be directed to the American Red Cross.
