We Remember


January 18, 1924 — October 19, 2022

At the age of 98, Geza Farago left his earthly home and went to his heavenly home to be with his Lord on October 19, 2022. He is survived by Gizella, his beloved wife of 79 years; his children and their spouses: Margit (Les), Zenobia (Wolfgang), Luke (Ilona), Julie (Steve), Lou (Margit), and Anne (Frank); his grandchildren Rob, Gloria, Steve, Michelle, Christian, Sylvia, David Farago, Richard, David Bene, Christine, and Jeremy; as well as his great-grandchildren Steve, Emilia, Luke, Bria, Carson, Lily, Levi, Livia, Reef, Wells, Alex, and Piroska.

Geza was born January 18, 1924, in Martonos, Yugoslavia to the late Lukacs Farago (d. Oct 1987) and Jolan Farago (d. June 1998); his brother’s name was Istvan Farago (decd.).  Geza was in his 40s when he moved to Hamburg, Germany in the Autumn of 1970. And in his 50s, he immigrated to Toronto, ON in January 1977. At age 65 he retired to Kelowna, BC.

A gifted Artisan Carpenter, Geza enjoyed building beautiful furniture pieces for his family. He also loved working outside in his garden, vineyards, and with his fruit trees. He made good red wine.

Geza dedicated his time to serving the Lord. His entire life, he ministered to the Hungarians. He loved preaching God’s Word, and he had a profound love for his bible; he read it daily, and lived it out with grace, integrity, and humility.

Geza will be missed, until we meet again.
