With broken hearts, we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, great-grandfather and hero Michael at Linhaven Nursing Home at age 92. Predeceased by his wife Helen (2017) and son Michael (2001), he is survived by son Steven (Alisa) and daughter Sharon (Paul). Loved by grandchildren Kim, Jeff (Dana) Matthew, Brandon, Corey (Kara) and Kierstin, Paul Ryan (Amanda) and Michael and great-grandchildren Christopher, Benjamin, Natalie, Harper and Lily. He will also be missed by niece Susan Olsen and daughter-in-law Shirley Yednoroz. Michael spent over 30 years teaching at Thorold Secondary School where he also coached championship teams in football, basketball and track and field. Michael was also heavily involved in the community serving as president of the Thorold Jaycees and Thorold Tennis Club. His smile, sense of humour and gentlemanly manner will be fondly remembered by many. His love of family, fishing, golf and reading and most importantly, helping others reach their potential was the foundation of Mr. Y. Many heartfelt thanks to the staff (past and present) of Linhaven, Merritt East. The family will receive friends at the HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold on Thursday from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Friday, October 23rd at 1:00 p.m. Interment at Lakeview Cemetery, Thorold.

Mr. Yednoroz was more than just a father, a brother, a husband and a grandfather. He was a mentor to many that were fortunate enough to cross his path, I was one of the lucky ones. He was my coach in sports in high school and he was my life coach (way ahead of his time). Through our talks many years ago (1974 - 1976) , he steered me into a path of personal success by teaching me to believe in myself and gave me the confidence in everything I did going forward. I am forever grateful Mr. Yednoroz, rest in peace.
