Tadeusz (Ted)


Year of Birth: 1931
Passed Away: July 7th, 2022

Ted was born in Chorzow, Poland to parents Gertruda and Stanislaw.

He emigrated to Canada in 1961 with his wife and eldest son and resided in Vancouver until they moved to Maple Ridge in 1977.

Ted was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and uncle. He lived happily alongside his loving wife Anna of sixty five years and together they created a beautiful family of their own.

He leaves behind his wife Anna and their three children, and their spouses, George (Brita), Dorothy (Guy) and John (Sandra), 8 grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was an uncle to Danuta, Zbyszek, Iwonna, Beata, Ken and Meg.

In 1957 he was appointed as Mayor of Lidzbark, Warminski, Poland where he met his future wife at a May Day Picnic Dance.

Ted loyally worked for HA Simons Engineering Company for 34 years and his position took him to places abroad to explore more of the world.

Ted was a remarkable, generous man that impacted many people’s lives. He had many interesting stories that he would share with family and friends about his life events during the war.

His love of learning and discussing politics and current events lasted throughout his life until the time he passed away.

During his retirement he spent most of his time with his family, travelling and visiting family in Europe, the Philippines and Canada.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Hawthorn Care Facility Assisted Living who cared so deeply for Ted.

You are forever loved and will be truly missed. Thank you for everything you’ve given us during your time here with us.

Ted or as I called him “Dorothy’s Dad” will be greatly missed. Growing up and spending so much time at the farmhouse he became to me a second Father figure. His laugh, beautiful smile and love for his family was so special. I feel so blessed to have been able to share in just a small part of his life and deeply cherish those days growing up.
Rest in peace Ted

Hey Uncle Ted
We did a great job cutting down the big tree in Maple Ridge
Too bad it fell on the apple tree and smashed it all to pieces
At least it didn’t hit the power lines

Uncle Ted created such indelible and positive memories for our family. He was a loving, kind, and generous man. We will always remember how overjoyed he was whenever we would come to visit (no matter how far between…though he also always let us know that he would love to see us more often 😉 ). It’s a huge loss for our family, he was able to tell me about our family history and more about my dad (Adam), what they as great friends experienced in Poland. Our hearts go out to Aunt Anna and all our cousins; we will miss him very much.
