In Memory of Gene Zwozdesky

Along with many in the community, we at Edmonton’s Food Bank were saddened to hear of the passing of Gene Zwozdesky early this week. Gene was a generous volunteer as the co-chair of our Magical Christmas Music Gala where his hard work and compassion inspired others in the community to help feed those in need. He also inspired us with his dedication and hard work to the causes close to him.

“When Gene became the co-chair of our Gala he brought an inspiring zeal to the role. We were honored to have him choose to support us and hope to live up to the inspiring and innovative leadership he showed,” says Marjorie Bencz, CM, Executive Director of Edmonton’s Food Bank. “Our deepest condolences to Christine and Family.”

Today, we learned that Gene’s family has included Edmonton’s Food Bank among the causes they wish people to support in his memory. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Edmonton Food Bank, St. John’s Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, Hockey Edmonton (Timbits), or the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada Foundation.
