Passed away Saturday, January 14, 2018. He was born May 7, 1958 in Wola Kamboska, Poland, to the late Stanislaw and Anzelma Surmacz. Jan was the oldest of 7 siblings, 5 of which are still alive today. Upon completion of high school, Jan worked in Greece and Germany before residing in Canada at the age of 30. Soon after, he married Maria Nena Ahumada in 1989. They gave birth to their son Stanley Surmacz in 1990 followed by their daughter Kimberley Surmacz 1991.
Jan worked very hard to provide a comfortable and fulfilling life for his family. He can be described as the most supportive, caring, and loving father and husband. With Maria’s help, Jan managed to instill his same traits in both Stanley and Kimberley.
Jan will be remember as a dedicated father and husband, a man full of stories, ridiculous humor, and a man who would never turn down a shot.
The family would like to thank everyone who helped celebrate Jan’s life. As he would say, “Everyday is Friday!” So live life to the fullest.
Funeral service will be held on Monday, January 22, 2018, at 10:00 am with viewing one hour prior at Serenity Funeral Service North Chapel, 10129 – Princess Elizabeth Avenue, Edmonton.
