My deepest condolences to you Lillian and Stefan.
I have nothing but the fondest of memories working with Steve at Brebeuf for several years. He was a consummate gentleman, highly regarded professional and a friend who would lend a hand at a moment’s notice. Staff and students alike respected him.
He extended his help to me personally on many occasions and recall that nothing was ever too much of an ask.
I recall that whenever he spoke of you Lillian and Stefan, his eyes lite up and he broke into a smile.
I know you will miss him but I also know that you carry his kind spirit in your hearts!
Kindest regards
Sandi Mlekuz

It is with great sadness that I read about the passing of Steve He was a good friend, and generous mentor during our years at CN

My sincerest condolences to the family. When Steve and I were colleagues at St. Jean de Brebeuf, he raised my awareness of many things historical, particularly those relating to Poland. He was well read, well informed so conversations with him were always enlightening. I will always be grateful for the insights he shared and the way in which he reenkindled in me the richness of my Polish heritage. Gone far too soon.

My deepest condolences to the family. I have fond memories of Steve as my biology teacher in the 1970s at St. Jean de Brebeuf. Later I had the pleasure of working with him for a short while at Cardinal Newman. Eternal rest grant on to him O Lord.

At St. Joseph's Elementary School, Steve became my best and most loyal friend. He was a man of prodigious strength, highly intelligent, unselfish and dependable. Steve helped us move into our new home.
He will always remain in our thoughts and prayers.
Our sincere condolences to his wife Lillian, son Stefan and the entire Pieczora family.
A mass will be offered for Steven at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Grimsby.

Steve had a great sense of humour he always had a smile. On my wedding, he and Lil cleaned our car, after my husband's family trashed it. We talked about that often. We shared a lot of years together, from youth and scouting till his death. I will miss his wit and the way he called my name. Rest in peace my friend.
