It is with deep sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Mirek Janusz on August 24, 2020 at the age of 83. Mirek was born in Warsaw, Poland to parents Romuld Janusz and Maria Szugajew. He had an older brother, Richard, who passed away four years ago.

Mirek was trained as an electrician in Poland and served in the Polish navy. He was very excited to come to Winnipeg, Canada in July 1962. He married Beverly Woychyshyn October 1, 1966.

In Canada, he worked in several positions – eventually retiring as chief supervisor for the CP Rail maintenance facility in Montreal. They retired to Kingston and he became the owner and manager of a fishing lodge in the Thousand Islands.

Mirek and his brother Richard shared a love of sailing and built and rebuilt a number of boats which they sailed on Lake Winnipeg, Lake Ontario and in the Caribbean. In 1971 he brought his son Mark to Canada. Mark married Susan, and they had two sons Andrew and Tyler. Andrew and his wife Melissa had a son Marcus just a month before Mirek’s passing. Sadly, both Mark and Susan predeceased Mirek.

Mirek’s passions in life were his wife Beverly, dog Jamie, sailing and skiing. He is survived by his wife Beverley, brothers Ron and Michael, in-laws Carol, Richard, Lesley, and Christine, and many nieces and nephews. He was loved and will be missed by all.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    My introduction to Mark was through Beverly a childhood friend of mine with whom I still keep in touch. Mark and Beverly were living in Montreal but came to Winnipeg quite often to visit family and came often to visit us. They were at my daughter’s wedding many years ago. Mark and my husband liked to spend the visit playing cards and it was always fun to find out who came out the winner. He always liked to joke around but playing cards was serious business. Mark and Beverly were very good friends and we were in Montreal to visit with them before Mark retired. I am very sorry to hear that Mark has passed away. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Beverly and Mark’s family.

    Deepest Condolences to Mark’s family;

    I was so Blessed to have been granted the opportunity to meet Mark and his Family.( from Canada and Europe)
    I was given the opportunity to have travelled alongside his brother Richard (forever cherished). The most memorable of these was the trip to their birthplace of Poland. There I met more of their beautiful family members.
    There were many moments of discussions and even more moments of laughter.
    I am so thankful to have been part of the Janusz family.
    Sincerely and forever in thoughts and prayers.

    I work for Mark for many years in Weston shops he was a good boss and electricians in Weston really like working for him
    He had a great head on his shoulders for solving electrical problems that no one else could figure out
    Mark and Paul Leger were a great team and they set up a lot of projects for the electricians in Weston
    Thanks for the many great years we had at Weston shops

    I am just so saddened to hear of Mark’s passing. He was such a kind gentleman. I would laugh at his stories and listen about his love for Beverly.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
