NIEWINSKI, Richard Karol
July 22, 1957 - Calgary, AB
July 15, 2013 - Calgary, AB
It is with deeply saddened hearts we announce the sudden passing of our brother Richard Niewinski, on Monday, July 15, 2013 at the age of 55 years. Richard was born, raised and educated in Calgary, later pursuing a career interest in computer programming and information technology (IT). Throughout the years, he established an admirable reputation of respect and integrity by the many organizations seeking his IT acumen. A voracious reader, Richard was extremely knowledgeable and an interesting conversationalist. His natural sincerity and willingness to listen, cultivated trust and many enduring friendships. Richard's passions included photography, history, sight-seeing and watches. A devoted son, brother, uncle, Godfather and friend, he especially enjoyed his playful role in the young and impressionable lives of his niece and nephew who loved him dearly. Often the instigating "kidder" who was fun to be around, he always left them wanting more. Richard's departure was too soon and we will deeply miss him, but forever embrace fond memories of him. Richard is survived by his oldest brother Edward (Laraine); sister Michelle (Dale); and wonderful niece and nephew Nicole and Nathan. He is predeceased by his father Walter and mother Nancy. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church (321 - 90 Avenue S.E.) on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com
. In living memory of Richard Niewinski, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
