Suchocki; Bruno (Bronislaw). It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Bruno (Bronislaw)Suchocki on November the 28th, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. Bruno is survived by his wife of 63 years, Josephine, sons Len (Mary), Ron, daughter Barb and four grandchildren, Christey (Michael), Candice (J.S.), Kyle and Michael.
Bruno was born on June 14, 1922 in Zelwa, Poland. After fighting for the allies in WW II, he immigrated to Canada, landing first in Halifax, NS. Bruno worked his way across the country finally settling in Coleman, Alberta where he worked as a coal miner. There he met and later married Josephine Mizera in 1950. In September of 1953 they moved to Agassiz, BC where they dairy farmed and raised their three children. Bruno retired in 1975. This past September, Bruno and Josephine moved once more to Kelowna, BC to be closer to family. Bruno’s family would like to express thanks to the medical staff at Kelowna General Hospital, ICU nurse Karen and all the nursing staff who cared for him so compassionately in his final days and hours. Thanks also to Bruno’s surgeon Dr. Jason Harris and the ICU doctors. A private family service will be held in Chilliwack and a celebration of life for family and friends will be held in Agassiz at a later date in the new year. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Society. Online condolences may be offered at www.woodlawn-mtcheam.ca.
