Dear Nancy and all your family.
We never met but by way of an introduction let me say that Wiesh and I grew up as close freinds in Edinburgh but lost touch thereafter. I have just found out about his death from Adam Scigalski. I am so sorry to hear of his untimely demise and my heart goes out to you and your family. Since we both ended up in Canada; I live in Victoria BC, I regret we never reestablished contact but take this belated opportunity to communicate my sincere condolences. May God comfort you all in your grief.
There are many more nice comments and stories on the Western Alumni Facebook page. All of Wiesh's students are talking about him. If you would like to view them go ahead.

I have only just learned, and so saddened of Mr. Pitulko's passing. I will always remember the kindness and friendship you all showed me during those school ski trips to Vermont. What fun we all had. I am forever grateful for the great care I was given after my "basket" ride off the mountain. Even then, the trip was still fun, because of the both of you.In more recent years I enjoyed and looked forward to meeting up with you at the Christmas Bazaars at Holy Trinity Church. He was forever kind and witty. My condolences to your entire family

Dear Nancy, Kathy and Family,
We were truly shocked to hear of Wiesiek's illness and susequent passing away. Our sincere sympathies to you all.
We still fondly remember your visits to London when you came to visit his parents. I also recall the years in Edinburgh where Wiesh and I were close friends and scouts together. Czesc jego pamieci!
To the Pitulko, our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your loved ones during this time of loss. Please accept our deepest condolences.
My condolences to the family. I will always have fond memories of calculus. Mr. Pitulko has always been my favourite teacher and I tell stories about him to my children still. He is actually the reason I have 2 "y"s in my first name.
I'm not good whith my english, but i'm realy sad about Wiesh. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir avec Wiesh et nous allons nous ennuyer de toi et ton sourire et tes grosses caresse. Nos sympathie à la famille.
I had the pleasure of working with Wiesh during my time with the O.P.P. Auxiliary and later to accompany me on many ride-a-longs when becoming a Constable in 1995. Wiesh had an wonderful sense of humour and spoke of his wife and daughter often. Wiesh, may you rest in peace my friend. Prayers and condolences to your families. God Bless.
It has been 24 years or so since I've seen Mr. Pitulko, but I have fond memories of him as a very nice man, husband and father. My condolences to Kathy and Nancy on their loss.

So sorry for your loss, Nancy and family.
Nancy and Kathy - I was so happy when Wiesh joined a group of us for lunch in Kingsville the last week of November - that is the memory I want to carry with me forever of him sitting across from me with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face and telling us stories all the time we were eating our lunch - we have all lost a gem and I go back to the days he worked at General Amherst HS --
Let your good faith carry you through the days ahead . Our love and support will always be here . We have had wonderful times with Wiesh our first PEI journey ( his best lobster feast ever that we experienced and will never forget) seeing Wiesh as PAPA was always a joy to watch , as a true kid himself ! Rest in peace our friend
Nancy and Kathy and Jeff
I am very sad that Wiesh is gone from our lives. I and my whole family have such wonderful memories of our multiple times together. You are in my thoughts.
I am deeply sorry in hearing that a friend such as Wiesh has passed away. During my years as a principal, and especially during the years that I was principal of Ecole secondaire EJ Lajeunesse, I was inspired by Wiesh who would often bring me coffee in the morning while sharing his wisdom. His faith in our vision of what a high school principal should give to his students more than made up for some of the challenges that we faced . I and the members of my family including Serge, Yves and my wife Annette wish to convey our deepest sympathy to Nancy, Kathy and the members of your family. Don't fret, Wiesh will be in my heart for a very long time. Annette and André Fournier (presently in Spain)!
So very sorry for your loss. Frank was always a friendly member to our staff and he will definitely be missed around Goodlife Fitness.
I am so sorry to hear of Wiesh's death. We go back a long time and his wit and intelligence have made for many wonderful meetings. He wil remain in my prayers as will you and Kathy.
Nancy, Kathy: I am so, so sorry for your loss. Every since I was little, Wiesh had always made me smile... with his extra serious principal stares, his jokes, his wonderful stories. He always spoke so deliberately, always thinking first, with the power to command attention. He was so smart, and I had always admired him. Being around him, there was always love, happiness and and a sense of wonder. And on top of all that, as a founder of the Hard Rock Golf Tourney, he helped create a legacy for our entire family, to ensure we will always get together and share in the good times. He will be greatly missed. I am sending you all my love and support.
Nancy and Kathy
I am sorry for your loss. I had the honor to know him from high school at Western Secondary.
Please accept our deepest sympathy on the passing of Wiesh. A kind gentleman who came for a ride with me in a cruiser on day shifts and night shifts, equipped only with a baton. Many stories were told of our old home country of Poland. I will miss my friend very much and may he rest is peace. The Weglarz Family.
Wiesh...you will be missed. Your haunting melodies on the harmonica sitting by the fire on a warm summer's evening by the shores of Lake Superior
or Your most extraordinary lobster dinners on PEI.
So many memories.
Sending you our love and heartfelt condolences Nancy, Kathy, Geoff and Lauren.
Mr. Pitulko was a great vice principal when I attended LDSS. I remember him as a firm but fair leader. May God rest his soul.
Nancy and Kathy
So sorry for your loss.
Nancy, To you and your family I send my sympathy.I will remember my times at IRF with Wiesh with great fondness.John W Drinkwater
Though I really only ever met Wiesh less than a dozen times, I will forever carry memories of him. And when I happily recount those memories he'll 'come alive' once more and I will laugh and smile as he looks on in my mind's eye.
Well played Wiesh. Thanks you.
Our summer evenings at Indian River Festival won't be the same without Wiesh sitting behind us to keep us in line! We will miss him. Our thoughts go out to you and your family, Nancy.
I worked with Weish at LDSS and he became a very dear friend. He had an amazing sense of fun and never ceased to brighten my day with his wit and the stories that only he could tell in his original "Pitulkese".
I am very sorry for your loss.
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We had the privilege of knowing Wiesh as a principal at our daughter's school plus as a fellow Auxillary O.P.P. member. He was a special guy & will be missed.
Sorry for loss. My thoughts& prayers to you and family. He was wonderful man and principal.
My deepest condolences, Weish was very interesting to have conversations with, he was the first person I remember during my process of going through for an OPP auxiliary.

Dear Nancy and Family,
Wiesh was a wonderful and thoughtful neighbour and friend. We will miss his cheerful chats and presence at Thunder Cove, PEI. The ceilidh community has lost both an entertainer and musician. Our sincere condolences.

We are so sad to hear of Frank's passing we loved our chats and his harmonica playing at our Ceili nights, love and prayers from the McSwiggan family
I'm so, so sorry to hear of Wiesh's passing. Nancy, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Wiesh was an honorable and honest person to work with at Western S.S.
My thoughts and prayers to Nancy and her family during this painful time.
Wish you will be truly missed, I thank you for your words of encouragement in my decision to become a Sergeant with the OPP Auxiliary. It certainly was a learning experience! I will miss our witty conversations. Be at peace Sir and have a drink with your former wise men. My deepest condolences Mrs. Pitulko to you and your family.
