Zivko Kocev, 88, of Toronto, Ontario, passed away peacefully on Sept. 30th, 2019.
Zivko is survived by his wife Golapka of 42 years, son Tami Loleski (Michelle), daughter Lila Kocev (Chan), 5 grandchildren Christian, Joshua, and Angelica Loleski and Ainsley and Tayden Leung. Zivko was a loving father, husband, grandfather and friend to everyone.
Zivko loved working with his hands, especially on projects that involved wood, where he could apply his skills as a cabinet maker. He enjoyed spending time renovating his house and cottages and was always there to help friends and family with a household project or whatever else people needed him for. Zivko was very proud of his kids and the adults/parents they grew up to be. He took great pleasure in spending time with his grandchildren up until his final moments.
A special thank you to the staff at Bridgepoint Active Healthcentre and The Peter Munk Centre at Toronto General Hospital in Toronto for their compassionate care and support. Also, the family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude towards Heritage Funeral Centre and St. Clements Macedonian Church for being very accommodating and understanding during this difficult time. There are many friends who have shown support these past few months and their kindness will never be forgotten.

Funeral services for Zivko will be a St. Clements Macedonian Church in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday, October 5th at 10:30am. Zivko will be laid to rest at Pinehills Cemetery in Scarborough, Ontario.
