      KOZLOWSKI, Ludwik (Lou) Stanley (April 12, 1919 - April 28, 2009) It is with
      great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Papa on April 28, 2009
      at 90 years of age after a long and difficult illness. Lou was predeceased
      by his parents, siblings and his wife Mary (Biczak) in 1995. He is, survived

      Carly (Dana), Mandy (Matt), Vanessa (Grant), Michael and eight
      great-grandchildren, Spencer, Kirsten, Matea, Liam, Trae, Fiona, Cain and
      Jesse as well as numerous relatives and friends. Predeseased by He was born
      and raised in Skomorochy, Lwow, Poland, son of Jan and Katarzyna (Reichert),
      SIBLING OF Jozef, Kazmierz, Anna, Stefania, and Maria. He was educated in
      commerce and accounting Lou was conscripted as a Polish National into the
      Red Army in 1940, serving on the Manchurian front. In 1942 he became part of
      the Polish Army in exile, on duty throughout the Middle East until spring
      1943, when he joined the Polish division of the RAF and became a wireless
      operator on a Lancaster bomber flight crew until he was discharged as a
      Sargaent. His war years saw him decorated with Polish Air Force, Polish
      Army, British Defense, Bomber Command and Second World War Medals. Lou
      immigrated to Canada in January, 1948 and, with the help of Canadian
      relatives (Prochera, Chmara and Reichert families), he settled in Winnipeg
      and married his beloved Mary in 1949. He proudly received his Canadian
      citizenship on December 13, 1953. He was employed by the CPR until 1955 when
      he started his career with the Winnipeg Transit System as a bus driver
      serving the City of Winnipeg well until his retirement in 1984 when he and
      Mom moved to Winnipeg Beach and spent many happy years. Lou moved to St.
      Albert in 1998. Lou was a humble, hardworking and proud man who was
      committed to provide a life for his children that had less hardship and less
      uncertainty than he had endured in his own life. He had little time for
      gossip and banter and when he spoke, others knew he had something important
      to say. Papa, we will miss your stories of your early life, your words of
      wisdom and your advice. The family wishes to express sincere thanks to Dr.
