May 24, 1946 – September 6, 2009

Janko Krotec died peacefully at home in Vancouver on September 6, 2009, after living gallantly with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma since his diagnosis in 1996. This gentle heart will be profoundly missed by his wife, Donna Mandelkau Krotec, son John Krotez (Julie), daughters Tania Krotez (Donald) and Natasha Krotez (Charlene), grandson Daymon Krotez, nephew Sandi Dejanovic (Natasa), nieces Maryann Sutherland (Steve) and Irene O’Neil (RJ), sisters Anka Dejanovic and Marica Krotec, and brothers Jozef, Lojze, Franje and Miko. Predeceased by his mother, Ana (1993), father, Jozef (1981), and brother, Slavko (2008).

The story of his life is one that was well lived, well travelled, and well loved. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, Janko Krotec Legacy Fund, would be appreciated. Please visit: .

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down
to let us know they are happy.
