ANDONOVSKY, Jordan 'George' - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Jordan Andonovsky, known to all as George, on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at the age of 87.
He was born in Carev Dvor (Цaрeв Двор), Macedonia, and came to Canada in the late 1950’s. His life was as varied as it was long.
After serving in the Yugoslavian army, he worked in various kitchens upon arrival in Canada, and retired as a metal worker from Canada Metal in Toronto.
He was extremely proud to have been a part of the original group that helped to build our Church, St. Clement of Ohrid, where he remained a parishioner until he could longer attend.
He loved to fish, travel to Florida, to entertain and be with friends, but most of all, he loved his family.
He will be forever missed by his wife of 54 years, Zora, daughter Cathy (Kiril) and son Danny (Maria). Beloved Dedo (grandfather) to Tatjana (Risto), Amanda (Bradley), Christian and Niklas, and great-grandather to Gavril.
Predeceased by his parents Vangel and Kostadina, sister Ruza, brother Zivko, sister-in-law Dushanka, and sister Dana.
The family extends heartfelt thanks to his dedicated caregivers at Chartwell Woodhaven Long Term Care Residence in Markham, for provided him with exemplary care and treating him with compassion and respect these past two years.
The family is also very grateful to the Doctors, Nurses and Technicians at Markham Stouffville Hospital for their expertise and care, whenever it was needed.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Markham Stouffville Hospital (https://mshf.on.ca/) or to the charity of your choice, in his honour.

Bog da go prosti. May he rest in eternal peace.
