Tibor Feheregyhazi 1932 2007 Family and friends mourn the passing of Tibor Feheregyhazi, who died July 10th 2007 after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer. Tibor was born February 14th, 1932 in Budapest, Hungary. He rose to prominence as a child actor with the Hungarian National Radio service. He later graduated from the National Theatre and Film School in Budapest and appeared in numerous stage and film productions. In 1956, Tibor was one of thousands of young Hungarians who fought in the Hungarian Revolution. That act of national patriotism and defiance forced him to flee the country, first to Italy and then Canada. Tibor celebrated the 50th anniversary of his arrival in Canada on July 1st of this year. Determined to stay in theatre, Tibor washed hospital floors, worked in camera shops and eventually attended the National Theatre School in Montreal. He went on to become the resident director of the second stage theatre at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, in Winnipeg, the artistic director of Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay and the artistic director of Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon. Tibor received numerous awards including the Order of Canada in 2005.Tibor's first love was theatre ... the art, the artists, and the audience. He often said the most important person in the theatre was the audience. It was a belief he instilled in all those who were a part of the Persephone family. Tibor could often be seen at the theatre before and after each performance talking to patrons, getting to know them, their likes and dislikes. It was after one elderly season ticket subscriber told him that she wouldn't be coming to the theatre any more because she didn't like to drive at night, that he organized a service, where a bus would pick up subscribers, take them to dinner and then to theatre and return them home. Tibor leaves to mourn his wife, Rosalie Woloski; children, Andrei, Natalie, Tony and Steven Feheregyhazi, Sara (Novakowsky); grandchildren, Dan and Becky (Novakowsky) and Jason (Feheregyhazi); sister, Edith (Hollos) in Budapest; and nephews, Zoltan and Janos (Hollos) in Budapest; as well as his extended theatre family. A Celebration of his life will be held Tuesday, July 17th at 10:00 a.m. at Persephone Theatre, 2802 Rusholme Road Saskatoon SK. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society (438 2nd Ave. N. Saskatoon SK. S7K 2C3) , the Dialysis Unit at St. Paul's Hospital (1702 20th St. W. Saskatoon, SK.
