    I am so sorry to hear the news of Zoltan’s passing. He was a brother, friend and neighbour for twenty years. Every spring we would get mulch and soil for our gardens. I remember many evenings drinking wine and crantinies sitting on your deck. You had so much pride of home, it was your comfort and you welcomed everyone. I will miss your emails Zoltan, I hope you are in peace and my prayers are with your family. You will always be remembered as the good soul you are.
    Love always,

    To Zoltan’s family, I’m sorry for your loss. Zoltan was a wonderful person, I met him 4 years ago but it felt like I had known him for years. I will miss his friendly energetic outlook on life. He helped me a year ago when we were closing our business… he was a true friend to so many. I will miss him.

    The news of Zoltan’s passing has been received with tremendous sadness. Zoltan and I were best friends for many years, we shared great times and talked often about enjoying the future together. He was an amazing man who always put others first before himself. Our lives are so much richer and fulfilled for having known him. Everyone that knew him would agree his winning a corvette at the Calgary Stampede could not have happened to a nicer person. My sincere condolences to the Nagy family. I will miss you my dear friend.

    My sincere condolences to Zoltan’s family. One of his nephews and I stayed at his home several years ago while on a ski trip. Since moving to Calgary I saw him from time to time at the gym, and had contacted him to assist in staging some new construction properties. My best to his family.

    It has been a somber time since learning of Zoltan’s sudden passing. Our condolences to his family and closest friends.

    We will remember Zoltan for his spontaneity and fun-loving spirit as well as his persistence – he always asked what furniture we needed for our home! His life ended much too early but his spirit will be remembered and endure.

    Zoltan, my heart is broken at the thought of never seeing your beautiful smiling face again or getting one of your wonderful hugs. You were a prince amongst men. Kind, loving, gentle, nurturing, and the consummate host. I just had to be near you and I felt better about myself and life. I will miss our time together on your deck, eating, laughing, sharing wine and you always imparting your wisdom. I wish we had spent more time together. I will think of you often and always with a smile. The world has lost a beautiful, generous soul. I console myself with the thought that you are now an angel, which is not that different from how you lived. I miss you Zoltan. I love you. May you find the peace and love you brought to others. May your family find comfort in how loved and respected you were.

    With deepest affection,

    Elmita Lobo

    We are so saddened to hear of Zoltan’s passing. We have fond memories of this wonderful man. Zoltan attended our wedding in Vancouver in 1992. In looking back the highlight of the event was Zoltan soldering my mother-in-law into the van because she was way too big to get up onto the seat herself. He was up for the challenge, he put his shoulder in her butt, gave her a shove and up she went. We all still laugh about it to this day. He and my brother Douglas were very close friends for a very long time, it is through him we came to know this wonderful wonderful man. Rest in peace dear man! ps. we share your grief.
