It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Dr. Krzysztof Wieczorek on Sunday, March 15 at the age of 75. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of nearly 50 years, Anna, and his sister Teresa and brother Stanislaw, both of Warsaw, Poland. Kris was born in Warsaw and graduated from the Medical Academy in Warsaw in 1968. He worked at the Institute of Hematology in Warsaw and specialized in general surgery; he earned his PhD in 1980. In Canada he became a clinical/research fellow with the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research and worked with Dr. G.D. Molnar on diabetes research at the University of Alberta from 1980 until 1984. Later he qualified in family medicine and practised for nearly 30 years at the Primrose Medical Clinic, Edmonton, where he gained a reputation among his patients and colleagues as a compassionate and dedicated family physician. In 2019 he was awarded a Life Membership in the College of Family Physicians of Canada. A Funeral Mass for Kris will be announced at a later date.
