Beloved husband, father and community leader Arpad Kolozsvary, 69, of Syracuse passed away on Friday after a swift yet courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. A proud Hungarian, he was born in Gyor, Hungary and immigrated to the US with his family in 1956. Arpad was a well-loved and respected member of his church community and many local and national professional organizations.
He is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, the former Anne Egan; his eldest daughter, Allyson (Rob) Towndow of Syracuse and Jen (Ryan) Dixon of Liverpool; his grandson, Nick Towndow; his brother, Laszlo (Joanne) Kolozsvary of Manlius; his sister, Adrianne (Joe) Antczak of Syracuse; his niece, nephews, other family members and several dear friends.
The family would like to thank the caring staff in the oncology wing at St. Joseph’s Hospital, especially Physician's Assistant Kristen Niver and RN Lisa for taking wonderful care of Arpad and for offering their endless comfort and support to his wife and daughters.
Calling hours will be held Monday, Feb. 12th from 4-7PM at St. Vincent de Paul Church, 342 Vine Street, Syracuse, NY 13203. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, Feb. 13th at 10 AM at the aforementioned location, followed by a luncheon in the church hall to celebrate Arpad’s life and legacy.
