It is with great sadness that the family of Lazar Djakovic announces his passing due to illness on Tuesday, January 21, 2019 at the age of 84.
Lazar was born in Dobro Selo, Bosnia and Herzegovina on April 28, 1934 and had one brother, Ilija, who preceded him in death. He came to Canada in 1958 and fell in love with this country. Lazar was an entrepreneur who owned his own machine shop. Lazar married his late wife Milanka Djakovic in 1991. He is survived by his two step-children Petar Maretic and Biljana Jovic as well as his grandchildren.
Lazar was the most loving grandfather to Stefan, Marija, Djordje, and Petar. He cared about his family deeply and was a kind and generous man. He will be forever remembered by his family who will deeply miss him but take solace in the fact that him and Milanka can be reunited again.
