VEBER, LOUIS (Ladislaus) 1928-2019. Louis passed away peacefully on October 23, 2019 with his family by his side after a full life of 91 years.

Louis lost the love of his life, Goldie, in 1998. The inscription on the stone where Goldie lies, reads “Until we meet again.” That time has now come. Louis and Goldie raised a large family of six children. Louis was a loving father to Les, John, Kathy, Robert, Paul and Chrissy, and their spouses. He was also Grandfather to Scott, Jeff, Lisa, Jason, Brent, Laura, David, Jacob, Jeanette, Danny, Sarah and Joshua. Great Grandfather to 14 wonderful great grandchildren. As one can see, Goldie and Louis have left a fantastic legacy in the form of a large and still growing family. Louis was born in the village of Rukamaz, Hungary, where as a small boy growing up, the Tokaj mountains were the edge of the world. He came to Canada with his family as a young boy of 8 years old. He grew to love his new home and the opportunities it offered him. Louis enjoyed spending time with family along with gardening, cooking, dancing, watching the Leafs (sometimes) and inventing things that made life easier. He was a man of integrity, kindness, and generosity. Louis will be sadly missed, remembered and loved forever by all who knew him. Louis and the family would like to thank those who cared for him at Brierwood Gardens and especially his caring nurses Rose and Henry. Louis will be resting at the “THORPE BROTHERS’ FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL”, 96 West St., Brantford. Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 6-9pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church, 9 Waverly St., on Friday, October 25th, 2019 at 11am. Interment St. Joseph’s Cemetery. In Lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. Louis was a kind person and a great father in law. He was always interested in the kids lives and activities even though we did not live close, he warmly welcomed us into his home every time we visited. He will be missed.

Uncle Louie was my mother’s youngest brother. When I was born he was living with us. I have a picture of the two of us taken over 70 years ago.
My most recent memory of him was running into him at Shoppers. He had driven there on his scooter to pick up a few things on Seniors Day. When I told him I was there for the same reason, he told me I was too young.

As a resident of Brierwood Gardens, I had the pleasure of meeting Lou and his wonderful family, including Charlie, his dog. He was loved by all and will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
Rest In Peace Sweet Lou! Valerie Czyz
