Zygmond Piebiak, beloved husband of Muriel Piebiak (McLaren) of Calgary of Province, passed away on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at the age of 77 years.
Zyg was born on the family farm at Eaglesham, AB to Andrew and Josephine Piebiak. He farmed with his father for a few years and bought his own farmland in 1961.

Zyg and Muriel raised three sons, Tim, Greg and Doug. He was always proud of his sons’ endeavours. Zyg was involved for many years in scouting and baseball. He was a Scout Leader and recently celebrated 40 years with Scouts Canada. Many of his NW Little League teams won tournaments and the wind-up parties were often held at his home complete with a water fight.
