It is with a heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father Józef Piekny on Saturday, February 18, 2023.
This gentle, loving, caring and wonderful man has left a permanent mark engraved on our hearts, and will be immensely missed by his wife and best friend of over 55 years: Anna Piekny; by his children Peter (wife Irene), and Andy (wife Margaret); as well as his siblings Boguslawa, Marian, Zbigniew, Halina, Wieslaw and Olenka. He was always there for them through their ups and downs, offering his love, support, and encouragement. He taught them to enjoy every moment life has to offer. He was a proud grandfather to Benjamin, Nicholas, and Emma who meant the world to him.
There was never a job too large or too small that he would not tackle. He was a gifted carpenter that loved working with wood and built many homes throughout his life.
He was a devoted Catholic, who spent countless hours volunteering and being an active member within the Polish Community: a parishioner of St. Casimir’s Church, in Toronto, and St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish in Mississauga, for many years.
He will be forever remembered by his wife, sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, extended family, and cherished friends.
