November 3, 1949 – February 11, 2021

Mr. Roman Wronowski, age 71 years, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 11, 2021 in TBRHSC.

Roman was born in Dzialdowo, Poland on November 3, 1949. He lived there as a boy and came to Canada at age 16. His father Ted, owned European Bakery on Simpson Street and Roman would help him in the bakery. During a return trip to Poland to visit family, he met Anna Miszelski. He was smitten with her and even though he had to return to Canada – he promised to come back for her. They were engaged and married in Poland and again once they arrived in Fort William. Soon after they welcomed their children, Mark and Joanne.

Family meant everything to Roman, he would do anything for them. The family camp on Burchell Lake was a place to be together. Some of Roman's fondest memories were visiting with family and friends on the beach, watching his grandchildren play and just spending quality time with them. Fishing, quadding and being social (parties) were what camp life was all about. He liked making and smoking his own sausage and showing others how to – while making it a social occasion for friends to get together.

Roman valued his heritage and he and Anna returned to Poland many times to visit their families. Years after Anna's passing, Roman met Monika through close friends. Together they built a beautiful life. They worked in their yard, often him directing and her working. She planned his first “hot” trip to Mexico and he begrudgingly went, but ended up loving it.

Roman was a Heavy Equipment Operator, through his career he worked at a few different places, settling at Northern Wood, where he retired from in 2008 when they closed. He liked to have projects to tinker with in his yard or garage, he was most proud of his full restoration and rebuild of a 1942 Harley Davidson motorcycle and his 1971 Thunderbird.

Survived by his long-time partner, Monika Zajac, beloved children, Mark (Alyson) and Joanne (Sam) Deschenes; and grandchildren Nicholas, Julia, Abigail and Max.

Predeceased by his wife, Anna (2000) and parents Ted and Donna Wronowski.

to Mark , Joanne and family. We became friends as you know all those years ago. Roman would drop in here once in a while , just to show me his latest purchase or sit and visit over a coffee or something a little stronger. We are so sorry for his passing . When you mentioned the old Harley, I brought out the photo I kept. I know and you do too Mark, the price haggling to reach an agreement. That was fun. Between you and I, Roman would have gone higher but the whisky was gone so we shook hands. He couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks before. Am glad he restored it. Our thoughts are with you at this very sad time. Sharon Pepin, Jim Forester
