With heavy hearts the family announce the passing of Bogdan on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at the Hamilton General Hospital, at the age of 79. Beloved husband of Janina "Zaba" for 57 years. Loving father of Kathi Janusiak (Mark) and Mike Matkowski (Paula). Cherished grandfather of Nikki, Jenna, Birch and Eric. Predeceased by his sister Lila of Poland. Missed also by his nieces and nephews. Special thanks to the staff of Victoria Gardens Long Term Care Home for their sincere care and compassion. Bogdan immigrated from Poland to Canada in 1972 and proudly brought his family to join him in 1976. He was proud of his two careers; one at International Harvester doing quality control and the second and most recent, driving a taxi for Blueline where he had a lot of fun and heard endless great stories. Above all, he was a dedicated family man and his family will never forget the trips, dinners and taxi stories.

We are very saddened to hear of your loss. Bogdan is a great loss to all the people who knew him. I remember times when we met. He was always full of life, telling stories and jokes. His eyes sparked! He was genuinely good person. He will always be in our hearts.
