October 26, 19 – January 10, 2013
Henry, beloved husband of Frances of Calgary, passed away on January 10, 2013 at the age of 93.
Henry was born in Somogy, Hungary, on October 26, 1919. He immigrated with his wife, Frances, and children to Canada in 1951. In May, 1952, the Cyfra’s moved to Symons Valley near Calgary where Henry and Frances resided since. A farmer all his life, Henry was devoted to his family. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought him particular joy, even as this once physically powerful man diminished in strength because of age and brief illness. Though the pulse of his heart weakened over the past few months, the enormity of his love never failed.
Besides his cherished wife of 65 years, Henry is survived by his daughters; Elona Malterre (Mark Lowey), Kathryn (Julius) Kiss; son Emery (Maureen) Cyfra; son-in-law, Emmanuel Malterre; grandchildren Alexandra Malterre, Rebecca (Glenn) Worm, Richard Cyfra, Carolyn Cyfra, Elizabeth Cyfra, Konrad (Nicole) Kiss, Vincent (Jessie) Kiss; and great-grandchildren Colby Worm, Tucker Worm, Liliana Kiss and Juniper Kiss.
