November 23, 1928 to March 11, 2016
Tibor was born in Kosice, Slovakia the son of John and Anna and the youngest of 5 children. After careers in search and rescue, running a ski chalet in the High Tatra mountains and in the movie industry he immigrated to Canada in 1968. He settled in Toronto, Ontario where he met his wife Margaret and they married June 23, 1973. They had 2 children and ran a store outside of Parry Sound. In 1987 the family moved across Canada to Vallican, BC as Tibor wished to retire in the mountains. In 2000 they moved to Osoyoos, BC. Tibor was a devoted, loyal and loving husband and father. His personality and humor left a lasting impression with whomever he met. He enjoyed cooking, reading the newspaper, watching the news and sports, a great cup of coffee and or brandy, talking politics, good friends and family. He welcomed everyone with open arms. Tibor died peacefully with his family by his side. He leaves behind his wife Margaret, daughter Mara (Peter), grandkids-Stella and Tanner-Tibor, son Andrew (Jen), grandkids-Conn and Sadie. We would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at the Oliver hospital and Sunnybank Centre staff for their care and understanding at this difficult time.
