DOSZECKI – Christian Paul (Chris)

January 15, 1936 ~ February 11, 2010

After a long battle with cancer, Chris finally succumbed and left all the pain and struggle behind him.

Chris is survived by his wife Sandra; sons Mark (Michelle), Michael (Tammy), and daughter Christine (John); grandchildren: Tylor, Tamara, Brandon, Ryan, Clinton and Fiona. He is also survived by his nephew Pepi and Sister Jeanine. He was predeceased by his sister Barbara.

Chris was born in Zaleszczyki, Poland. Following WW2 he immigrated with his family to Canada. He served for a time in the RCAF and later went on to work in the forestry industry in British Columbia for many years. Chris found great joy and happiness reconnecting with his extended family in Poland and France. His last trip to Europe with his grandson Brandon brought his journey full circle.

Chris will be remembered for his work with the Navy League Cadets and within the St. Peter’s Church in Nanaimo. Chris was a member of the Knights of Columbus.

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in Chris’s name, to the Canadian Cancer Society.
