The Lotoski Family –

I write to express to you and your family the sincere condolences of the Patricia’s on the passing of Michael Lotoski. The Regiment remembers Mike’s service in Korea with 2 PPCLI – and this year is the 70th Anniversary of the actions at Kap’yong. The family I am sure are proud of that service and his continuance with his Legion service in his community. His name will be read in this year’s list of the lost when we read that out on November 11th, 2021 in the Sacred Space in Beechwood, the National Military Cemetery, Ottawa. His name will also be listed in the 2021 edition of the Patrician’s Last Post section.

Thank you for obviously supporting Mike throughout his long life. We are glad that he had a vibrant family.

Should any of Mike’s family want to maintain a connection with the Regiment, a gratis three year Memorial Membership in the PPCLI Association is available. Contact Mr Herb Kenny, the Membership Chairman, at hkenny@shaw.ca, for details.
Thank you all.
