Adam Mordarski

MORDARSKI, Adam - Web Obit photo.jpg


April 22, 1948 - February 1, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dear father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He is survived by his children Josh and Karen (Curt); grandson Léo; brothers Henryk (Elizabeth) and Edward (Pamela); niece Katie (Alex); and the mother of his children, Denise Bernard. He is predeceased by his parents Władysław Mordarski and Genowefa (née Depta).


Born in the Displaced Persons camp Altenstadt in Germany, Adam immigrated to Canada at the age of 2 and became a proud Canadian Citizen in May of 1955. Growing up on Higgins Street, Adam and his brothers would spend their days playing sports, taking the train to the beach and riding their bikes everywhere, even as far out as Cooks Creek. After moving to Elmwood, Adam graduated from Elmwood High and went on The University of Winnipeg where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1979.


Life itself was an adventure for Adam. He started his career with Canada Post in 1968, and spent the majority of his time in Depot D and Depot T. Upon retirement, he was #1 on the carrier’s list as well as having the most seniority in the city. Marriage and kids, always travelling and embarking in businesses such as AbD Cards and Slo-Pitch National. Slo Pitch encouraged his love for the game, both through umpiring and playing. Adam was inducted into the Slo Pitch Hall of Fame twice, first as a player in 2006 and then as an Umpire in 2009. He also served as Umpire In Chief from 1989-1996 and literally wrote the rule book.


In his early 20s the travel bug surfaced and Adam toured Europe and Australia with Henryk. Throughout summer vacations, he would tour Canada “diamond by diamond” with the kids while playing ball during the National Championships. He saw every province, and almost all of the lower 48. Retirement brought on his favourite trips, winter vacation! Cuba, Panama, El Salvador, you name it; if it was warm, he was there with his travel group. Before the pandemic hit, he was able to go back to Europe and cruise through the Mediterranean.


Adam was an eternal optimist and a laid-back go with the flow kind of guy who never had a bad word about anyone. We will surely miss his joyous disposition, and his hugs-even if it had been a day since he last saw you, he hugged you like it had been a year.


In accordance with Adam’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In the meantime, Adam’s family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter. We love you Dad!
