Louis Loczy

LOCZY, Louis

August 12, 1929 – March 12, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Louis Loczy, beloved husband of Frances Fraser. Louis peacefully passed away in the early hours of March 12, 2023, in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by his loved ones. Born into a remarkable family in Budapest, Hungary, Louis had a wonderful childhood until the arrival of the Germans and Russians during World War II, which forever changed his life. Escaping to Morocco, he completed his secondary studies before pursuing an undergraduate degree in Commerce from HEC in Paris, and later a Post Graduate Business Certificate from McGill in Montreal.

In 1951, Louis immigrated to Canada on the Anna Salem, one of many refugees seeking a new beginning. Despite starting with minimal accommodations on the ship, his helpful nature did not go unnoticed by the staff, who rewarded him with privileges. Upon arrival in Canada, he continued to showcase his linguistic abilities, aiding the Halifax port authorities with his fluency in four languages. Montreal became his new home, and he fondly recalled his first memories of the city, enjoying an ice cream cone on St. Catherine Street before indulging in caviar and scotch to celebrate his arrival. By 1956, Louis obtained Canadian citizenship and went on to enjoy a fulfilling life.

Louis had a successful career in middle management finance, working with esteemed companies such as KLM, Commercial Credit, and Societe Generale. He retired from an international corporate and investment firm where he made a lasting impact. Throughout his professional journey, Louis met his German sweetheart, Frances, with whom he shared over 45 years of happiness. They enjoyed various activities together, including biking, hiking, dancing, swimming, skiing, and mushroom hunting. Their love for each other and their family brought immense joy to their lives.

Sadly, Louis’s life ended too soon at the age of 93 and 7 months. He will be deeply missed by his wife Frances, his children Susanne, Pierre, and Katrin, as well as his grandchildren Marc-Antoine, William, Annelise, Eli, and Alexandra. A celebration of life will be held at his home on Sunday, August 13, during his Birthday weekend. The family extends their gratitude to the Dr. Rossback Home Care team and Munro and Morris Funeral Home for their exceptional services.

May Louis Loczy’s memory live on in the hearts of all who loved him.
