Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father and dida, George (Duro) Knezevich on Friday, October 21, 2016, at the age of 68, after a short battle with cancer.

George will be forever remembered by his wife of 43 years, Nadia; his daughter Djurda (Ivica) Tomkovic in Croatia; son Mark (Jaqui) and granddaughters Eva and Lucy; son Matthew (Amy) in Edmonton; and sister and brother-in-law Sonja (Misko); numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents Ivan and Kaja; his brothers Mato, Vinko, Stevo; and sisters Manda, Teresa (Mark), and Marija (Mark) in Croatia.

George moved to Canada in 1976 and took pride in the life and family he built in the following 40 years, and did everything he could to ensure his family's success. He was dedicated to his occupation, took a tremendous amount of pride in his work, and did his best to pass on his knowledge to those he mentored. He loved Edmonton summers, birds, and his fruit trees. Following his diagnosis, some of his fondest memories were made in his back yard with his family and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.

Prayers will be held on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home Downtown, 10011 114 Street, Edmonton. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, October 28, 2016 at 10:00 a.m., at Nativity of Mary Croatian Church, 10560 98 St NW, Edmonton.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CapitalCare Foundation, Norwood Palliative, 6th Floor, 10909 Jasper Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB, T5J 3M9.

In Loving Memory of
George Knezevich
