In Loving Memory Of

Nick Tarnowski


It is with great sadness that the family of Nick Tarnowski announce his sudden passing on Saturday January 14, 2017 at the age of 78 years.

Nick will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Marg; children Troy (Simone), Lori (Doug), and Trevor; grandchildren Gui and Micholai; brother Andy (Barb); sister Pauline (Denis); brother Alex (Mary-Ann); as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Nick was predeceased by an infant son, his father John, and mother Anna.

Nick was born on August 17, 1938 in Brest, Poland. He immigrated to Canada at the age of 12 with his family in 1950. At the age of 19, he started a long career with the Canfor Plywood Division.  He retired as sales manager after 34 years of service with the closing of the plant in 1991.

Nick was known for his sense of humour and his great one-liners. He had a great love of the outdoors which included hunting, fishing and taking long drives.  He was also a diehard Oilers fan.

The Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at 11:00am, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Grande Prairie (10404 102 St.), with lunch to follow at Oliver’s Funeral Home (10005 107 Ave.). Interment to follow at Grande Prairie Cemetery (84th Ave. and 112th St.).

The family wishes to thank Dr. Martin and the nurses on 5 north for the wonderful care given to Nick. Special thanks to Ron and Eveline Brown and family for all your love and support.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation (710, 10123 99 St., Edmonton, AB, T5J 3H1).

In Loving Memory of

Nick Tarnowski
