Robert (Bogdan/Bob) Majewski – artist, fisherman/sea dog, inventor, renaissance man, globe trotter, free thinker and creative soul … passed on peacefully in the presence and with the blessings of his daughter at 4:45 AM on March 30, 2018, in Parksville, BC.
Stricken by cancer, he fought bravely to the last, with the care and support of his brother, daughter, many medical angels and loving friends. Having left an oppresive regime in his native Poland at a young age, he proudly called Canada home for most of his life. In addition to helping many fellow Poles establish themselves on the West Coast back in the day, he left behind a rich legacy of hard work; a body of creative works including songs, poems, drawings and sculptures; and a caring circle of friends who will dearly miss his spirit, love of life, songs, corny jokes, and keen intellect.
An oceanside memorial will be arranged at a later date. Condolences, tributes and photos warmly welcomed by grieving family – daughter Monika, brother Mirek and sister Teresa at www.qbmemorials.ca/notices/Robert-Majewski.
