Job Miklos Baranszky


BARANSZKY - JOB _ Miklos Known to all as Miki, went peacefully to his Lord this Sunday, March 5, 2006 with his family by his hospital bed. Born in Budapest in 1934, Miki grew up in tumultuous times of war and political change. Himself a revolutionary at heart, he joined the revolt against Russia in 1956 and, like many Hungarians, fled his home and country in 1957. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Ann, whom he met when working in Banff. They lived and made many friends in Alberta and then British Columbia where they settled in Point Grey. There they made a life filled with love, children and friendships. Miki reveled in British Columbia's beauty and contributed to it through his work as a landscape architect. Even so, he was particularly proud of his achievements as a parent and grandfather, in passing on his love and passion for food, wine, art, music, reading, adventuring, sailing, skiing, and all things coastal. He was a fine teacher and a great sailor (although the Coast Guard may beg to differ.) A Christian man, we know Miki had a faith in life everlasting and are consoled by this. There are many wonderful friends to whom he was loyal and who will mourn the passing of this remarkable man with the accent, the laugh and the stories no one else could possibly match. With them, the loss will be most felt by Ann, their daughters, Katrina (Richard) and Susy (David), and the beloved and admired grandchildren, Charlotte and Lewis, and Olivia and Mikylo. A Celebration of his well-lived life will be held at 11 am, Friday, March 10 at Ladner Christian Fellowship, 5545 Ladner Trunk Road, Ladner. In lieu of flowers, bring wine - or donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Delta Funeral Home (604) 946-6040
