We Remember


Marian Filipiak passed away on January 9, 2022 at the age of 90. He is survived by his only child, son Ray Filipiak; grandchildren Marek and Janel Filipiak; and daughter-in-law Janice (née Enders) Filipiak.

Known as Mark to his colleagues and close friends, his early life was challenging, surviving the ravages of WWII as a teenager and the hardships of post-war Poland. In 1965, he decided to risk his family’s future by immigrating to Canada. Life turned for the better in the years to follow. Life became a challenge again after the passing of his wife, Julianna, in 2019. His health began to suffer shortly thereafter, and complications from heart failure took him away from all who loved him.

A private Family internment ceremony will be held at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.
