Thomasz Jedrysiak

May 5, 1962 - September 3, 2015


It is with great sorrow that I am sharing the news of the passing of Tomasz Leszek Jedrysiak.   

Tomasz died in peace on Vancouver Island in British Columbia on September 3rd, 2015, following an almost three years of treatments for brain cancer. His wife of 32 years, Roma, was by his side.  

Tomasz will be deeply missed by his wife, daughter Hannah and mother Franciszka. In addition to his wife,  daughter and mother, Tomasz is mourned by his brother Wojciech (Bogumila) and nephews Bartosz and Piotr, relatives in Poland and many dear friends around the world.

Tomasz led a very fulfilling life, having made many friends along his journey from the beginning in Poland through to the time he spent in Greece, Toronto, Bermuda, and more recently in British Columbia.  

He approached his life with a gregarious and humorous attitude, always quick with a smile and a kind word.  Having had many different careers over the years, he found passion and fulfillmentH in his work as a structural engineer, career he dedicated his life.

We all have our own special memories of times spent with Tomasz and feel lucky to have known him.  The world was a better place with Tomasz as a part of it.   He has left behind many happy memories and will be sadly missed. 

The family wishes to thank Dr. JP McGhie and Dr. David Peterson and the other medical professionals at the Cowichan District Hospital and the Jubilee Hospital  whose great care allowed Tomasz to enjoy life with his family for more than two years after his diagnosis.

Our special thanks and gratitude goes to the Victoria Hospice staff as well, with their help Tomasz was able to end his life peacefully and with dignity.

As was Tomasz’ wish his remains will be cremated and he will be laid to rest in Poland, beside his father who passed away earlier this year.  

A small family and friends ceremony to celebrate Tomasz’ life will be held at St. Peter’s Church 5800 Church Road, Duncan, BC on Thursday, September 10th at 3:00 PM.

I have been so sad to hear of Thomasz’s passing away. He was always so pleasant to spend time with. It is so wrong that a loving father, husband and a really good person should be taken from us so soon. My daughter and I have been in deep grief ourselves as my wife of twenty years passed away suddenly in March. You are in my thoughts Roma and Hannah.
