HECZKO, Herbert Richard
The Guest Book is expired.
Peacefully, on December 25 at Royal Victoria Hospital in his 86th year. Son of the late Julia (Worobiec) and Richard Heczko. Husband of Irene Heczko (Wojteczko) and loving father of Patricia (John Heidenreich). Cherished grandfather of Christopher and Julie Heidenreich. Herbert is predeceased by daughter Astrid, and sister Herta. He leaves behind many family members and friends who will miss him dearly. Herbert was a metallurgist and radiographer who worked at Canadair Bombardier for 40 years. A man of many talents who spoke six languages, he played several musical instruments and also played a mean game of chess. His family would like to thank the staff at the Royal Victoria Hospital; nurse Julia Bresnai who cheered him up in his last days, and the team of Dr. Peter Goldberg, Eric, Josee, Genevieve and the rest of the staff in ICU who valiantly made every effort to keep him with us. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 9:30 AM at St. Paul's Ev Lutheran Church, 1720 rue Decarie, Ville St. Laurent, Quebec H4L 3N3.
