Obituary for Henry John Jamrozinski

Henry John Jamrozinski, in his 67th year, of Port Franks, Ontario, passed away suddenly on February 1, 2021, and is now in God’s loving embrace.

Henry was born on July 14, 1954, to Halina and Henry Sr. (2008) of Grand Bend, Ontario. A proud pioneer and innovator in the potato industry, Henry spent his career establishing and growing the family business. Henry was an avid boater, pilot, aspiring professional karaokist, outdoor enthusiast, sport fisherman, and everyone’s favourite entertainer.

Henry met the love of his life Lilly Vanos in high school; the two were happily married for 47 years and had four amazing children, Christie (Steve) Kloske, Jennifer (Richard) Cooper, Kandis (Jason) MacKenzie, and Henry David (Nicole) Jamrozinski. He was also blessed with five beautiful grandchildren, Carson and Graeme Cooper, Lily Kloske, and Jaida, and Kayden MacKenzie, who he loved dearly.

Henry is survived by his mother Halina Jamrozinski, sisters Linda (John) Blain, Diane (Theo) Rood and in-laws Carol (Ken) Lewylle, Mike (Bonnie) Vanos, Judy (Sterling) Smith and Rosanne (Steve) Minielly and their families. Henry is predeceased by his father, Henry Jamrozinski Sr. (2008), and in-laws Tony (2004) and Bep (2016) Vanos.

Always up for an adventure, Henry and Lilly made friends across the globe as they experienced life to the fullest. Living his best life, Henry always had a story to tell and never met a stranger, making friends everywhere he went. Loved by many, Henry will be missed immensely. A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date when we can properly celebrate his life, the way it was meant to be celebrated. Cheers to you Henry and hoping it’s always 5 o’clock.
