Szakaly, Zoltan

Passed away peacefully at Guelph General Hospital in his 92nd year on May 16th, 2021.

Zoltan lived in Ariss, Ontario, with his wife Julia Szakaly (deceased) until 2015. Zoltan spent the last 6 years of his life at Norfolk Manor in Guelph, Ontario, where he created many friendships.

Zoltan was born on January 1st, 1929 in Hungary and came to Canada as a refugee in 1956 after being an active member in the war. He went on to graduate with a diploma in nursing and was a long time employee at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph. Zoltan was a member of the Hungarian Canadian Club as well as the Guelph Soccer Club. He was an avid reader and although it was all in Hungarian, he would tell the stories of his past in English.

Zoltan, Zoli, Z will be greatly missed by close friend Alesha Bogad and her daughters Annika and Devyn. Zoltan was intelligent, funny, gentle, caring, stubborn and one of the strongest men we know, he lived all his days this way right until the very end and that legacy will forever be in our hearts and minds.

Following Zoltan's wishes, cremation and interment at Woodlawn Memorial Park have taken place.

Zoli was truly one of a kind and had an impact on those he cared for. I worked with him at the Homewood and would see him frequently out shopping after he retired.. He always had a kiss and a warm hug with genuine sincerity. Although gone, he was never forgotten with all of his "Zoli-isms". God Speed Zoli, Safe Journey. Jo-Anne Yanchus
