SKOWRON, Jerzy--

On May 3rd, surrounded by family, Jerzy passed away peacefully in the home he shared with the love of his life, Margaret, who left us in December of 2017. Although he missed her terribly he enjoyed many years with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and will have many stories to tell her over a good cup of tea, or maybe even a wee dram.
Beloved father of Helen (Brian) Nicholson of Bolton, Linda Hughes, Rita Skowron, both of Guelph, and Suzan (Bobby) Cameron of Cambridge. Cherished papa to Christopher Hughes (Lisa), Arlene Hughes (Frank Joswig), Stacy Niemi (Paulo Sun), and Stefan and Heather Cameron, and cherished great-papa to Cameron Hughes (Sheneka Senior) and Shae Hughes, and Caelin and Dominik Joswig.

Jerzy was born on April 11, 1925 in Komorow, Poland. As a teenager, Jerzy was saved from a journey to Auschwitz by a farmer who needed labourers. After many years of hard work, he joined the Polish Army Forces in Italy, and was present at the Battle of Monte Cassino. After the war, he moved to Wolverhampton, England, where he met his sweetheart, Margaret. They raised their four daughters in Glasgow, Scotland, and eventually settled in Canada in 1982. They enjoyed many years on the Lakeshore in Toronto before moving to Guelph, where they retired in 1992.
Jerzy is pre-deceased by his parents Wladyslaw and Wladyslawa, and by his brother, Stefan.
