It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Julius, peacefully at the Brantford General Hospital Complex Care Unit, surrounded by his loving family on Sunday, May 26, 2019. Julius Jakub was in his 92nd year. Cherished husband of the late Magda Jakub (2016) for over 63 years. Loving father of John and his wife Jayne and Edward and his wife Mary.
