Wally Buczkowski

Obituary of Wally Buczkowski

Passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Hospital on June 4, 2021 with close family by his side.  He will be greatly missed by his devoted wife, Janet, who took loving care of him until the end of his journey.  Wally was the beloved father of Ashley (Brett) and step-father to Lorne (Jackie), Matthew (Whitney) and Luke; proud Papa and Dziadzio to his eight grandchildren - Avalyn, Benjamin, Chloe, Reid, Riley, Ruby, Talon, and Keaton; loving brother to Helen (George), Irene (Edward), and the late Stanislaw; and caring uncle to Melissa (Matt), Adam (Lynne), Monica (Robin) and Erica.

Wally was born on December 5, 1955 to the late Edward and Anna Buczkowski.  Growing up, he lived in downtown Toronto where he enjoyed bike rides with his buddies, maintaining these friendships throughout his life.  He was a Manufacturer's Representative for an electronic company for many years prior to developing his own similar business, CTM, in the mid 1990's. With an avid interest in Real Estate, he became a Real Estate Broker in 2010 and represented Century 21, Leading Edge in Markham. He flourished in this role and served many clients who held him in high esteem. Wally's active involvement in the Markham Unionville Rotary Club for over 20 years (as President, Director, Secretary, Webmaster and multiple positions as Chair) reflects his integrity and commitment to community endeavors and helping others. 

Wally was a kind and generous man who always put his family and friends first.  He was passionate about hockey, music and classic cars - especially his 1969 Pontiac Firebird.  He was known for his smile, his sense of humour and his love of conversation.

Due to the current restrictions, a private family funeral will be held on June 10, 2021, but a live streamed service will be made available at 12:30 pm. A celebration of Wally’s life will be held at a later date. Our family would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at Sunnybrook Hospital for their outstanding care of Wally.
