Born in Katary, Poland on August 2nd, 1934, Stanisław was the youngest of six children. Before immigrating to Canada, he lived in his family home and worked for the Polish National Railway. Stanisław came to Winnipeg on March 4th, 1971 with his wife and daughter. On arrival, his family became members of Holy Ghost Parish and he began working at Motor Coach Industries Ltd. until his retirement in 1999. Stanisław treasured living a simple life. He loved to be around his family, especially his grandchildren, who learned many life lessons from him. One of them being the importance of generosity, a quality he was known for by family and friends.
A steady and strong presence in his household, our Mąż, Tata, Dziadziu, Wujek, Wujek-Dziadziu will be greatly missed.
