PLATER- ZYBERK, Jan Maria (June 20, 1926-December 29, 2006)
Passed away peacefully in the 81st year of his life on December 29, 2006 at his home surrounded by his loving wife and children, after a courageous, six year battle with cancer. Born to Jan PLATER- ZYBERK and Maria (TYSZKIEWICZ) in Wilno, Poland in 1926, he was a Polish patriot who faithfully served his country in World War 2 and distinguished himself during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 in the Polish home army (A.K.). In 1994, the Polish government awarded him with the Cross for Valor. Following the war he made his way to England where he met and married Elizabeth (née GUZKOWSKA.) They moved to Canada to establish a family, a home and a new way of life. Jan had a fulfilling 25-year career as a representative for KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines. He was fiercely proud of his adopted country. He is survived and greatly missed by his loving wife of 56 years, Elizabeth (Halszka); his daughters Elizabeth (CREASE) and Dorothy (COOPER) and his son in-law Grant; and his son, Jan.
