Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Jozef Gawlak



It is with great sadness that the family of Jozef announces his sudden but peaceful passing on Sunday, June 11, 2017.

He will be remembered by his loving children: Jerzy (Marilee), Maria (John) and Andrzej (Mary); six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, as well as many relatives and friends.

Jozef was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Jadwiga, just two weeks earlier.

He was born in Poland. Jozef was a young soldier in the Polish army. He was in the Second Corps in the Italian campaign where he fought in the battle of Monte Cassino during the Second World War.

After suffering through World War II and because of circumstances, his family settled in England as the war ended. It was there he met and married Jadwiga in 1950 and they were blessed with three children. In 1979, they came to Canada and moved to St. Albert, where he resided until his passing. At that time, Jozef and Jadwiga joined and were active members of the Holy Rosary Catholic Parish in Edmonton. Jozef had a really beautiful voice and enjoyed being a member of the Parish Choir for over 30 years. Jozef and Jadwiga also joined SPK #6 Polish Combatants Association, as well as many other Polish organizations. Through these organizations they met many new friends and enjoyed many traditional celebrations.

In Loving Memory of
Jozef Gawlak
