In loving memory of Ted Durbacz, peacefully Tuesday June 7, 2016 at his residence with the love of his life and best friend at his side. Beloved husband of Caroline (Jaksic). ......You said to me Teddy (it was love at first sight)...... My love (and that you would be close and right by my side)..... My darling. Ted was a kind and gentle man with a big heart, he always had a bright beautiful smile for everyone he met. Ted worked for the city of Sudbury for 38 years and worked in aquatics for his entire career. His love for aquatics started when he became a lifeguard and spent many summers on the beaches of Ramsey Lake. He was heavily involved with the lifesaving society as a provincial leader and was recognized for his extensive experience and knowledge in both pool and waterfront safety. After retiring he became a chief auditor and traveled with his aquatic people doing what he loved to do best his legacy as a teacher, instructor, coach, volunteer and aquatic professional will live on. Son of the late Stanley and Jadwija Durbacz. Dear brother of Tony Durbacz (Carmen). Uncle to Stas and Lee Durbacz. Loving brother of sister Anna (Peter Trottier). Special brother in law to Michelle Jaksic. At Teds request there will be no visitation, private family burial and celebration of life will follow at a much later date.
