April 28, 1939 – July 28, 2020

Passed away in Pointe-Claire on July 28th at the age of 81 years old. He leaves his sons Marek and Stefan and their spouses Perla and Luk; his grandchildren Shane and Liam Sobanski, his partner Elizabeth Mostovac, as well as many other family members and friends in mourning.

Having been an outstanding and dedicated teacher for most of his life, he naturally knew how to guide others while transmitting his altruistic qualities.

    I remember the time our family spent our vacation in cape cod and the time we used to bring our kids to skiing. It will never be forgotten

    Mother Theresa’s poem was seemingly written especially for Jan: Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it, Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is a sorrow, overcome it.
