Along with a beautiful evening sunset, Kazimierz (Kaz) Leszczynski passed away peacefully on February 24, 2021, with his family by his side. He is our warrior, our hero, and we're so proud of him.
A private family service will be celebrated at Holy Ghost Parish, followed by interment at Holy Ghost Cemetery. Due to COVID-19, a livestream of the service will be available at on March 3, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. Perhaps we can all raise a glass together for Kaz this summer or when it's safe to do so.

We'll keep smiling for you, Papa Bear.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Very sad news indeed. I worked with Kaz for the last 25 years before my retirement. He was certainly an unforgettable character and will be greatly missed. Condolences to his family, friends, and coworkers. - Posted by: Peter Mankelow (Work Colleague) on: Mar 09, 2021

  • My heartfelt sympathies go to you, the Leszczynski family. I am/was a co-worker of Kaz's from Magellan, and it was always a highlight when he stopped by my desk. I would smile before he said a word knowing he had something interesting he wanted to share, rarely work related. I was lucky enough to have traveled with him on company business, and when we were away, he was always an upbeat influence. We spoke regularly about retirement, but he said he was still having a good enough time, and would put it off for a while longer. I, like many others who worked with him, was saddened to hear of his passing, and wish his family sincere condolences. Doug L. - Posted by: Doug Lyons (work friend) on: Mar 07, 2021
