Obituary

Grzegorz “Greg” Jozef Kopysc, 51, of Edmonton, AB, succumbed to Multiple Myeloma at the Cross Cancer Institute on July 17, 2014.

Greg was born on March 08, 1963 in Krasnik, Poland. He moved to Edmonton, AB in December of 1987 where he remained for the duration of his life. He is survived by his wife Bozena of 30 years, daughter Kamila (Ian) Doetzel, daughter Olivia Kopysc, mother Bogumila Kopysc, sister Marysia (Andrzej) Ciszek, brother Krzysztof (Wiesia) Kopysc, brother Zbyszek (Beata) Kopysc, loving grandchildren Kasia, Viktor, and Kalina Doetzel, and many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. Greg was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to all.

Greg was a man of all trades, if something needed to be done you can guarantee he was there helping anyone who needed it. Even if he had never done a specific task before, he would read about it, teach himself how to do it, and make it perfect. Anyone who knew Greg knew how much of a perfectionist he was, and how much family meant to him. He was always willing to give advice or help in some way or another. He was a fighter all through his life; with English as his second language he managed to grow and provide for his family, start his own business, and build the house of his dreams. Which is why it is no surprise to anyone that he fought his cancer with everything he had. Unfortunately he lost that battle, and is now looking down on us from up above.

A Funeral Service will be held at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home in St. Albert, AB on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Father Jozef Sikora OMI will be officiating the service. Following the service will be a small reception for close family and friends at the Kopysc residence. Thereafter Greg will be cremated and his ashes will be taken back home to Poland as his final resting place.

Memorial donations may be made to Alberta Cancer Foundation Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Ave, Edmonton, AB, T6G 9Z9.

In Loving Memory of
Grzegorz Jozef Kopysc
