Peacefully on Sunday, July 31, 2022 Stanislaw passed away at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 76.
He was predeceased by his parents Sabina and Piotr Skotniczny.
Stanislaw is survived by his wife Renata, daughter Kathy, and son Eugene “Kuba”; both of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and grandchildren Maciej, Patrycja, Julia and Christopher, as well as his brother Wlodzimierz Skotniczy and sister Janina Dybek.
Stanislaw was a graduate of Silesian Technical Research Institute in Katowice, Poland where he made many lifelong friends.
After moving to Canada in 1991 he settled in Weyburn, Saskatchewan moving to Winnipeg, Manitoba in early 1992, where he was reunited with his wife and children who arrived from Poland in November. Winnipeg became Stanislaw’s new home where he made many lifelong friendships.
Stanislaw was a very caring person, always putting family first, especially all his grandchildren.
He always went above and beyond when helping people, including total strangers he met on his travels professionally as a long-distance truck driver.
Stanislaw and Renata celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2021, together they spent their time in Traverse Bay at their second home, travelling around the world, entertaining friends and family.
While we mourn the loss of our husband, father and grandfather, he will be remembered with love and we celebrate his full and truly unique life.
