October 3, 1935 – March 1, 2015
We are sad to announce the passing of Louis Charles Fajkus at his home on March 1, 2015. Lou is predeceased by his parents Joseph and Frances Fajkus, sisters Vlasta Twardowski and Anne Fajkus. He is survived by his wife Lois Fajkus, daughters Lisa (Bruce) Inglis and Lori (Dave), Macie; grandchildren Akasha, Jake, Jennifer and Ben and great-grandchildren Jinelle and Ella Rose.
Lou was in the United States Air Force for 26 years. He started his military career in Blaine AFB Washington and was transferred to Japan. After 2 years in Japan he returned to Blaine. He was then transferred to Mt. Lolo AFB in Kamloops where he met his wife Lois of 56 years and where his first daughter was born. From Kamloops he was sent to Duncanville AFB near Dallas, Texas where his second daughter was born. After 2 years he was transferred to Great Falls, Montana then to CFB Comox, then to Blaine, Washington, CFB Lama Caza, Quebec and finally back to CFB Comox in 1972 where Lou retired in 1979.
In Lou’s leisure time he enjoyed puttering around his 2 ½ acres lovingly known as “Louis Park”. He never let us beat him in a game of golf. Lou loved spending time with all his grandkids and rescuing them in his wheelbarrow ambulance.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations in Lou’s memory made to the Comox Valley S.P.C.A. would be greatly appreciated. Private family arrangements.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the special neighbours and Comox Valley Home Care Nurses.
