Alojza, his wife of 58 years and sister Janina in Poland, survive John. John leaves to mourn his passing and to celebrate his life his four children, Donna (Brian) Stefanson of Airdrie, Alberta, Ted (Nancy) Kurtas, Stan (Leslie) Kurtas and Theresa (Dan) Beaudoin.

John was born in Konin, Poland where he became a man, joined the Polish Army as an officer, and fought in World War Two. He was captured and spent 3 years in the concentration camp Auschwitz. John was a man of enormous spirit, Christian faith, and strength surviving the inhumanity of incarceration at Auschwitz. He did not return to his native Poland but instead set forward to make a new life for himself and his family in Canada. John lived and worked in Selkirk for over 50 years, retiring in Winnipeg . He enjoyed being with his family, good home cooked food, gardening, playing chess, and cribbage. John will forever be remembered for his selfless desire for a better life for his family. He was the Patriarch of his Family. Solid Christian Values, Integrity, Honour, and tradition are the core values that made him the man he was.
