I am John's son in law Brian Hurley and am married to John's youngest daughter Elizabeth. I have known John for nearly 40 years and have shared many wonderful experiences with him over that time. Things have improved markedly since our first phone call when Elizabeth and I were 16 and I called the house looking for her and was told by John that Elizabeth was not at home. I asked him if he knew where she was and was told ,"Of course I do!" John always was a devoted and protective father and any would be suiters quickly learned his daughters had a father who looked out for them.
John was a true old school gentleman. He treated everyone he encountered with kindness and respect. He was an admired father, husband, grandfather, doctor and teacher.
Over the years John and I spent a lot of time together. He was a man who remembered your favourite drink and had it in the fridge for you when you arrived at his home. He could spend hours in conversation on topics ranging from medicine to politics to music and everything in between. His wealth of knowledge and genuine concern for the person he was speaking to was truly something to behold.
John will be fondly remembered and missed.

I remember Dr. John Leszczynski as very much the proper gentleman - a very polite, intelligent, kind, gentle, loving man who adored his family foremost.
As his son-in-law, married to his daughter Katheryn, I had the pleasure of meeting him later in life when he had already established a highly respected, and much admired, career in medicine; was renowned as a dedicated and compassionate doctor; was a venerated, popular and highly esteemed professor; and, was influential and acclaimed mentor to his students and colleagues.
It was evident from the moment you met him that he was an avid reader of history and voracious conversationalist. He had an insatiable curiosity combined with a prodigious memory. There was very little he could not bring to mind and any argument with him, on facts and dates, was pointless. He loved travelling, painting and the countryside; and, the years spent with his family at Waskesiu Lake and Idabel Lake.
He will be sorely missed, but his presence will always be felt.
