In memory of

Jerzy Pietrusiak

July 17, 1930 -  June 20, 2018

July 17, 1930–June 20, 2018

Passed away peacefully in his 88th year, with family at his side at Lakeridge Health Oshawa. Beloved husband of Zofia (Grula) of 64 years. Caring father of Lucia (Garry Engkent), Andrew (Judy Reynolds), and Mary-Anne (Garth Mann). Doting grandfather of David, Susan, Emily, Amanda (Nick Tassone), Jessica (Adam Rochwerg), James, and William. Proud great-grandfather of Jacob. Jerzy was born in Dabrowa, Poland. As a boy, he was taken away to a work camp in Austria. After a stint in the Polish armed forces in Italy, he spent time in the Middle East. Then he settled in England where he met his Zosia. The family immigrated to Canada in 1957. Most of Jerzy’s working life was spent at General Motors. After he retired, he became a snowbird in Florida and took up golf. He loved fishing and spending time with his family at the cottage. As a skilled builder, he was a perfectionist. Generous with his time and skills, Jerzy was always helping others. He had a wicked sense of humour and played a mean game of euchre. He will be greatly missed. Visitation will take place at THORNTON FUNERAL CENTRE (1200 Thornton Road, North. Oshawa 905-579-6787) on Thursday, June 28 from 7-9 pm and on Friday, June 29 from 10 am until time of Funeral Service in the Chapel at 11 am. The Pietrusiak family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the caring staff at Lakeridge Health and Chartwell Wynfield Retirement Home. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
