Obituary for Janos Zoltan "John" Erdei

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Father at his home in Victoria, BC. He is lovingly remembered by his son (Shaun), daughter (Monica) and grandson (Lucas).

Dad was born in Debrecen, Hungary where he developed a passion for football in the wake of the great Ferenc Puskas. In 1956 he left everything behind and came to Canada, staying with the Pearce family in Victoria. Once introduced to hockey he became a dedicated Montreal Canadiens fan and also enjoyed swimming, tennis, gardening and cars, especially his '57 Chev. He started a family with his first wife Marion while working for BC Forest Products and then later with Victoria Plywood. Dad lived his life his way and remained independent until the end.

Love you forever Dad.

It was with great sadness in my heart that I discovered that my good neighbour, Janos, had suddenly passed away. Although I only knew Janos, fellow resident in my building, for a short time and only as we passed in the hallway and on the parking lot, we frequently engaged in friendly chats sufficiently long for me to establish a great fondness for my fellow immigrant from Europe. We soon discovered our mutual passion for soccer, in which we both participated in our youths, but also that we were both avid fans of the Montreal Canadiens NHL hockey club through thick and thin. i shall miss Janos and our frequent, friendly encounters.
