In Loving Memory

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Alex who perished unexpectedly at the age of sixty eight.
Alex Varga was born on March 3rd 1955 in Vac Hungary. Maria and Istvan Varga's second born child.
At the age of 12, he immigrated to Austria with his father. They stayed there for 4 years and took on a heavy workload. They got their Canadian settlement papers there, and after they got them they were on their way to Edmonton.
Alex started going to school and became a master plumber, but in the meantime, he also learned all other trades related to domestic plumbing and house renovation.
He loved to work on cars and ride motorcycles when he was younger. He had a deep connection to the mountains, and he spent a lot of time on mountain climbs and hiking expeditions. He had a deep interest in gold mining but was always open to everything.
He loved honest people and was very helpful towards everyone.
He had 3 children, his youngest son, Jozsef, was lost at the age of 20, which took a toll on him.
Alex was accepted and loved everywhere in Florida, British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, and all over Europe. He had many friendships. He met Jutka and her family 15 years ago. He found happiness within this family. He accepted her children as his own and the children also looked up to him as their father. The whole family is devastated by his sudden loss.
