TEGLAS, Doctor Aloysius Louis
Unexpectedly, on Wednesday, May 30, 2007, surrounded by his loved ones at Saint_Joseph's Health Centre. Beloved husband of the late Joan TEGLAS and loving father of the late Catherine (Jason DUCHARME.) Also loving father of Joy (John CHROBOK), Ann (Michael HORTON), Michael (Dorota MIREK) and Trevor (Jack.) Cherished companion of Kristin GISLADOTTIR. Dear brother of living siblings John, Etus and Boris. Much adored grandpa of Michael and Sarah; Jade Jennifer, Thomas and William; Julia and Andrew. We are forever grateful to our dad for teaching us to have the courage to love, the importance of family and the constant reminder to keep life simple as Dad's poem so eloquently illustrates… I am becoming simplified. To become less is better. I yearn to be free of matter. I want liberation from my senses, from all bodily pretenses. From achievement, from pain and pleasure: from time, space and matter. Simple is better. We love you Dad! Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, on Sunday, June 3 from 2-5 p.m. and on Monday, June 4 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A private service for the family will be held at a later date. For those who wish, donations made to the Saint_Joseph's Health Centre would be appreciated by the family.
