Kolodziejczak, Stanislaw (Stan)
Stanislaw (Stan) passed away suddenly at his home in January 21, 2021 at the age of 95. He is survived by his children, Marie Brown (Blair 2001), Stan (Michele), Hennie Lyle (Bert 2015), Annette King, and Donald. He was predeceased by his wife, Nellie, (2009), his parents, and siblings in Manchester, England and United States. He so loved his children, his grandchildren, Blair, Jamie, and Amanda Brown, Paula Lyle, Keith, Colleen, Allison, and Lauren Kolodziejczak, Adam and Gordon King and his great grandchildren especially hugs from Jordan Brown.
He married Nellie in Holland in 1948 and they moved to Canada in 1953 with their 3 oldest children. Times were tough and he worked hard to put meals on the table for his family. They became Canadian citizens as soon as they were able to and he was so proud to call Canada home. They had 2 more children born in Guelph and stayed here for their remaining years seldom going anywhere further than Kincardine for a summer vacation or to England or Holland to reunite with family.
Dad worked as a carpenter starting at the toughest jobs and working his way up to finishing contractor who was very well respected for his excellent work.
He enjoyed his final years reminiscing and loved nothing better than a chat about the old days. He was truly content with his life choices.
He was in the hospital on several occasions and was such a good patient that the nurses really cared about him. Because of that relationship, we would appreciate any donations being made to Front Line Workers at the Guelph General Hospital.
