Leon Derejko



It is with great sadness that the family of Leon Derejko announces his sudden passing on Thursday September 26, 2013 at the age of 89 years.

Leon will be remembered by his loving wife, Janina (Jean), of 67 years and his children, Richard (Carol), Jerry (Susanne), Larry and Jeff (Vivian). Leon will also be fondly remembered by his seven grandchildren, Joshua (Jami) Derejko, Jennifer Derejko-Viinikka, Nathan Derejko (Genevieve Sander), Elizabeth (Russell) Buzenus, Katie-Sue Derejko, Sarah Derejko and David Derejko and his great-grandchildren, Samuel and Madison Derejko, Levi and Anya Viinikka, Caleb, Cooper and Everley Buzenus.

Leon was very involved with a variety of clubs, including the Polish Veterans Society and the Knights of Columbus, raising funds for his favorite charities over many years.

In Loving Memory of
