Ondrej Sarvas

August 21, 1948 ~ February 13, 2019 (age 70)


Mr. Ondrej Sarvas born August 21, 1948 passed away February 13, 2019 at the age of 70. He is survived by his son Dusan and Janka Sarvas. At a young age Ondrej was a gifted athlete and competed at top levels in Football. He was the 2nd oldest of 5 siblings Elena, Ladislav, Joseph and Miroslav Sarvas. Ondrej loved sports and passionately followed everything from Hockey to Tennis. He enjoyed picking mushrooms in the autumn and was an amazing cook with fantastic recipes and eagerness to share.

People laughed in his presence, sincerity spoke and sometimes even sang a tune.

A strong good-hearted man he was and always will be, with jokes on every corner and true personality.

To laugh often and much.

To win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children.

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayals of false friends.

To appreciate beauty and within find the best in others.

To trust and leave the world a better place from moments unchained.

Know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here.

This is to have succeeded.


I thought of you with love today

But that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday

And days before that too,

I think of you in silence and often speak your name.

All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake

With which I’ll never part.

God has you in his keeping

We have you in our hearts.

With love and respect - your family and friends.
