July 3, 2024 – Calgary, Alberta


Our hearts are shattered announcing the passing on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, of Antoni Grodziski, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a great-grandfather, and a beloved uncle.   


Antoni was born in Poland on June 10, 1934. Along with his family, they immigrated to Canada for a better life and landed in Calgary in 1951.


In 1956 Antoni married the love of his life Phyllis and together they shared their love story for almost 68 years.  They had four beautiful daughters, Virginia (Darrol), Rosalie (Michel), Shelley and Tracy (Ted).  He was also a devoted Pa to seven grandchildren, Chad (Lisa), Jason (Abby), Brant (Erin), Adam (Jenny), Krystal (Menhelm), Cody (Jalaine), Nicole (Moe); and nine great-grandchildren, Fatima, Carson, Jaxson, Lincoln, Laila, Kinley, Bella, Charlie, and Addison. (Abbie & Seven…4-legged grand friends)


Antoni was predeceased by his parents, his two beloved sisters, a niece, and a nephew.


Antoni (aka Tony Gordon or Budweiser Man) retired from the City of Calgary at 55 and spent his retirement years primarily focusing on his family and finding time to have a cool one with his friends at Dixons Pub, and his morning coffee crew at Tim’s.
