Toni Sylka

December 5, 1925 - November 30, 2016

Tribute

Our father and grandfather passed away peacefully in the presence of his loving family just a few days before his 91st birthday, at the Langley Lodge care home in Langley, British Columbia. Toni was predeceased by his wife Marianna Sylka (Regulski) and by his infant daughter Lucina. He is survived by his son Ted (Cindy) and his daughter Christina (Kevin), by his five grandchildren David (Tash), Megan, Clare, Sophie, and Miles, and by his sister Anastazja Blaszkowska.

Born in Klukowa Huta, Poland, Toni traversed Europe as a teenager during the Second World War, to serve in the Polish Forces in Exile in Scotland. After the war, he lived in the Netherlands, before immigrating to Canada and arriving in Powell River in 1952, where he met and married Marianna in 1959, and where he worked until his retirement in 1990 at the pulp and paper mill. He enjoyed lively conversations over coffee, and was always wise, thoughtful, and good humoured. He was loved and respected by all who knew him, and will be remembered as a generous, kind, and compassionate man. He will be very deeply missed. The family would like to thank his many friends, along with the staff and volunteers at Langley Lodge, Capilano Care Centre and the Powell River General Hospital.
