Born March 18, 1939 in Lyndora, he was the son of the late Carl Jurysta and Nellie Sebock Jurysta.

Gub was a long-time employee at Pullman Standard and retired when the plant closed in 1982. He also worked at Edward’s Gas Station and the Butler Gulf Gas Station, and later as a janitor at the Connoquenessing School District and the SOI. A man of strong faith and love of God, he was a member at St. Fidelis Roman Catholic Church. He also loved the Pittsburgh Pirates and NASCAR. He also enjoyed fun times and many late nights at the Seneca Casino with his wife, Mary Ann, and his cherished brother-in-laws, Stan and John. Above all, he was a kind-hearted, loving dad and husband.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife of 45 years, Mary Ann Ostwinch Jurysta; his daughter, Marilee; and his buddy, Brian.

Also surviving are his siblings, Rose Ann Slupe, Ronald Jurysta and his wife, Barbara, and Edward Jurysta and his wife, Harriet, all of Butler; his brother-in-laws, Stan and John Ostwinch of Butler; a sister-in-law, Pat Jurysta, and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Carl “Sonny”, Martin, Stephen “Pecka”, Larry and Harold Jurysta.
