Geza was born in Hungary and at a very young age decided he must leave his home country due to the post war troubles and the revolution happening during that time. He move to Canada when he was only 17 years old, and first landed in Quebec where he worked on the railroad. Sometime later he moved to Alberta and worked in various jobs including being a machinist on heavy equipment, a janitor, and also worked at the tannery. He was a hard worker, and enjoyed the opportunities that Canada provided him. Even after he had decided to retire at the age of 66, he still enjoyed and kept a part time job to fill his time. He was a faithful member of the Kalvin Hungarian Presbyterian Church in Edmonton. He also enjoyed his weekly coffee meetings with friends at Tilly's. He was a very beautiful dancer and that is where he met his wife Nadiya. He was a very stubborn Hungarian man who married a very stubborn Ukrainian woman, and they enjoyed their 18 years together.
