TOPOLSKI, Gregory Xavier Ogonczyk
On February 13, 2008, in Toronto, at the age of 39. In the face of a fifteen-year-long battle with melanoma, he stood brave, optimistic and uncomplaining. Greg attended Chelsea Elementary School, Philemon Wright High School, and Lisgar Collegiate Institute. He received a degree in Honours Business Administration from the University of Western Ontario Business School (now the Richard Ivey School of Business) in 1991. He was passionate about his work as a Program Manager with the Corporate PMO of Rogers Cable. His keen intellect and genial way made him a natural manager. His work with Daxxes, ADC Software, and Belgacom took him to Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Denver, Brussels, Colombia, Chile and Bangalore. Greg inherited his father's love of travel and culture and revelled in his impressions of Paris, Prague, Australia, London, Poland and elsewhere. Barrelling down Camp Fortune's hardest runs as a kid prepared him for slopes in the French Alps and British Columbia. He was an accomplished golfer and tennis player. He enjoyed getting away to Eddis Island on Cachacoma Lake with his Friends, cousins, and dog Zeus, where he would sometimes paint landscapes. Greg's tremendous general knowledge made him equally comfortable discussing politics, history, wine or dog breeding. He made Friends as easily in the mountains of Colombia as in the boardroom. His two last trips were with his father, to Italy and Portugal (in October 2007). Greg was witty, discerning, spiritual, full of joie de vivre and an inspiration to his family and many Friends for both the way he lived his life and how he dealt with his illness. To spend time with him was to feel cheered.
Dearly loved and missed by his father Aleksander Boguslaw, mother Joan Eddis, sister Alexa (Gerry), brother Rory Munn, and nieces Caroline and Sarah. Special thanks to his faithful Friends John and Seanna Reid, Steve and Louisa Bull, Ben and Evan Nuttall, Fraser Walters, Julian and Shelley Franklin, and Natalie Mamen cousins Tim EDDIS, Mary CROWTHER, and Margarita MORALES; Suzanne MONTGOMERY and the whole team at Rogers; and doctors Vincent Young and David Satok for their unwavering support and love. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 1st at two o'clock at the McGarry Memorial Chapel, 139 Valley Road, Wakefield, Quebec (819) 459-1800. In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for melanoma research.
