In Loving Memory of

Adolph Gniazdoski

January 15, 1913 – November 1, 2012

Adolph was a very proud Veteran of WW11.

Adolph passed away peacefully at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital at the age of almost 100 years, after a short illness & a long, healthy, happy life.

Adolph had a really big, compassionate heart, a twinkle in his eye and a warm smile for everyone he met. He was a very kind person, always willing to help others. Adolph was an accomplished Poet & Author. An avid fisherman, he loved the great outdoors & Mother Nature.

God saw you were getting tired,

a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, and whispered “Come To Me.“

With tearful eyes I watched you fade away.

Although I loved you dearly,

I could not make you stay.

I will always be so grateful that I was able to spend the last three weeks of his life, with my father and was able to talk and laugh and love, read him his beautiful poetry & listen to his favorite music. He was a father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend to so many people. To me he was more than a father; he was my friend and my hero. I always admired my father and had a great deal of respect for him.
