POREMSKY, Karel

November 15, 1955 – Ostrava, Czechoslovakia
June 23, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we announce the passing of Karel Poremsky, husband, father, grandfather and friend to many, at the young age of 62 years.

Karel was born in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia, son of Zofie and Karel Poremsky. He grew up with two sisters Jana and Melanie. Karel graduated from university as a mechanical engineer. In 1986, he escaped Czechoslovakia with his wife and two year old son Peter and in June 1987, they made their home in Calgary, AB. In Canada, Karel built his mechanical engineering career and became a member of APPEGA. He founded KALPO Design where he practiced his skills.

Karel was an avid hunter and outdoorsman and enjoyed sharing these activities with his friends. Twelve years ago, Karel was diagnosed with liver disease and required a liver transplant. He took on the challenge and persevered. His journey became a success and Karel was given a second chance. Karel’s new zest for life brought him interest in travelling and finding new experiences. He travelled the world with his son or wife in pursuit of Formula1 races and exotic places.

Karel was proud of his family and was fully devoted to them especially to his granddaughter Emily with whom he spent hours drawing pictures.
Two months ago, Karel was diagnosed with cancer, a battle that he was prepared to endure. Unfortunately due to various complications he was taken from us too soon.

Karel will be lovingly remembered by his wife Alena of thirty-seven years; son Peter; granddaughter Emily; sister Melanie; his nephew Tom and family; and his niece Eva and her family.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Friday, June 29, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the funeral home. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Karel Poremsky, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    To the Poremsky Family,
    Although I had only worked with Karel over the last 4-5 years here at Compass I quickly learned that he was a very knowledgeable and practical engineer. We shared hunting and outdoor stories nearly every time he was in our office. He was a great man and will be missed! Trust you all find comfort in his memories; my thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of sadness.
