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.

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. He was the proud and loving grandfather who always had time for his eight grandchildren; Kathryn (Hugh), Patricia and Jeff (CREASE;) Samantha and Jason (COOPER;) and Nicholas, Carolyn and Ben PLATER- ZYBERK. He also leaves his sister Barbara and her husband Tadeusz and their children Anka and Jacek; his brother-in-law Andrzej and wife Zofia GUZKOWSKI and children Monika and Adam. Jan was predeceased by his brother Andre and his wife Alix. The family extends special thanks to Doctor Klinghofer, Dr. Hassouna, Doctor Jason Lee and Paula, and the nursing staff at Toronto Western Hospital; the caring, visiting nurses from St. Elizabeth; the support staff at the Community Care Access Centre (North York); and the many Friends, relatives and neighbours who showed their love.
