Although a serious man, this unique hippie at heart was known for his strong and stubborn opinion, corny jokes and comedic laugh. We will forever cherish his incredible home movies, generosity, helping hand, willpower, and long lasting lectures. His lessons on logic, health and patience will always be remembered.
He will be loved and missed by his family and friends, in Canada and Czech Republic.
