Wiktor J. Zajac left this earth in the comfort of the Puyallup Hospital. He was born in Poland, 1928 surviving WWII as a teen who was forced to leave his family and work for the Nazi Regime. Fortunately, his family of parents, brother and sisters survived as well only to be under the occupation of the communists until 1989. Divorced, he came to the U.S. to visit and met and married, Nellvergne Allen- Young. In later years after becoming a U.S. citizen, he was able to sponsor his sons and their families who joined him in 1998 & 1999. Working for nine years at the former Gai's Bakery, he retired and worked three years for Jack-in-the-Box. Trained as a baker, he enjoyed that career most of his working life. Besides his wife, he leaves his sons, Miroslaw of Fife, Karol of Kent, their families; his sisters, Janina Ksiazek, Ala Zajac of Poland, and Zdzislawa Winkler of LA, CA and their families. Wiktor enjoyed people, all his ethnic dances, and customs and retained most of his native language as well as Russian and English. In his later years, he cultivated and enjoyed gardening. He will be sorely missed by all the members of his family and the step family he knew from early childhood.
Memorial service will be held Saturday June 10, 2017 at 2pm at Weeks Funeral Home, Buckley, Washington.
