Dezso was born on February 16, 1935 in Ecsed, Hungary. After having fought in the Hungarian Revolution, he moved to Canada in 1957. He worked as a painter for the Calgary General Hospital and then the Peter Lougheed Hospital before retiring in 1996. Dezso enjoyed walking by the zoo, playing cards, and was passionate about watching sports, particularly watching his son, Steve, play soccer. 

He is survived by his loving son Steve and wife Shay (Kellaway) and granddaughter Katelyn. Dezso is also survived by his older sisters, Mari and Annus, and younger brother Janos, who still resides in Hungary. He was predeceased by his sister Elizabeth. Dezso will also be fondly remembered by his extended family (Elizabeth, Rick and Natalie) and all his friends at Northpark Terrace.

    I was a kid growing up in Acadia in Calgary and was good friends with his stepson, Rick Rados.
    What I remember about Dezso, from an early teenage perspective, was that he was a decent man who worked hard to provide for, at that time, Elizabeth, Rick and Natalie. Although I lost track, of course, of Deszo as I grew up, my sincere condolences to his family and especially to his son Steve.
    You won’t remember me Steve, as you were just born when Rick and I were both in Junior H. S., but I do remember that your Mom affectionately called you “Ooble” The spelling may not be right, however I wanted to share some good memories that I have from the 1970’s.
