Sunrise December 18, 1938 – Sunset October 3, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jozsef Szalay with Ruth and Tim by his side in the home he built in Val Caron, Ontario in his 84th year.
Dear father to Ruth (Tim), David (Brenda), Sylvia (Jim) and grandfather to Brielle, Allison, Abigail, and Annabelle.
Predeceased by his parents Jozsef and Margaret Szalay and his brother Geza all from Hungary.
Born in Rabatamasi, Hungary, Jozsef immigrated to Canada as a young man. He came to Canada with nothing but a shirt on his back and was willing to offer the shirt off his back to those in need. He had a loving heart and a good soul. He built the family home at a young age and remained in the same home for over fifty years. As an INCO retiree he enjoyed construction and always had a project on the go.
A Celebration of Jozsef’s Life will be held at a later date.
