Furbacher, Vaclav (Peter)
Peacefully at home and surrounded by family, Vaclav (Peter) Furbacher, at the age of 95, died on June 24, 2020. Predeceased by his parents Vaclav and Anastazia and siblings, Anastazia, Jaroslav and Ludvik as well as his wife, Irene Tusl. Loving father of his devoted children Alan (Erica) and Dasha (Karl) and fondly remembered and forever loved and honoured by his six grateful grandchildren and their families and eight great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Vaclav was born in Dolni Lhota, Czechoslovakia, and is remembered by many in his homeland for his bravery and heroic act of orchestrating the destruction of a Nazi train loaded with ammunition during the war thus saving countless lives. Vaclav daringly escaped communist occupied Czechoslovakia on his motorcycle with his best friend Milan Sebek on the back, immigrating to Canada in 1950. Upon arrival in Canada, Vaclav endured much hardship working in the remote mines of Red Lake, Ontario as well as working in Yukon Territory and Newfoundland before settling in Toronto. He established Correct Construction Company in 1954, which continues to operate to this day carrying on his legacy through the second and third generations of the Furbacher Family. In 1964, he constructed St. Wenceslaus Roman Catholic Church in Toronto, a home for Czech Catholics to celebrate their faith and culture. Forever remembered for his generosity, dedication, sacrifice and work ethic, Vaclav worked selflessly and tirelessly to give his family a better life back home and in Canada. A quality builder and craftsman, he was a man of his word and led by example, still coming into the office daily well into his 90s. He will sorely be missed by all. We take consolation in the Divine Mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ during this time of great sorrow. Due to current social gathering restrictions, private family arrangements have been entrusted to Newediuk Funeral Home, Kipling Chapel. Online condolences at

I only ever got to share a few Tim Hortons coffees and donuts with Peter after Alan did me the great honour of introducing me to the man he boasted about with such profound admiration. It was just enough time to hear some good jokes. But over the years, Alan has regaled me with countless amazing stories about his father, and through Alan, I think I got to know the man well enough to be able to say with confidence that he was a character of unyielding integrity. Peter Furbacher didn’t just start a successful business after arriving in Canada with little more than the clothes he brought with him; he also started a family here that has grown and prospered, and that carries on his legacy of integrity and strength of character, which will continue to serve the family well for generations to come. Peter Furbacher brought so much more to Canada than just his clothes. Our nation’s foundation is built on extraordinary characters like him, people to whom we will always owe our deepest gratitude. Thank you, Peter Furbacher. And for now, adieu.

I was quite sadden when I heard that Peter passed away. Peter gave me my first job when I graduated from college 39 years ago and set me off on my path in the construction industry . I always had the upmost respect for him. He was a gentle man who always had the time for you. And who can ever forget that grin he always had.
