Voiko Lukanov is no longer with us. Terrible news. So terrible, that we do not want to believe it.
The Man Voiko… His logic and philosophy of life was: “if you want something, you need to give first…” And he was a Giver - he was giving himself without seeking recognition, always responsive to help with means, advise, ideas, support for any cause, smaller or bigger; for our community events here, no matter how small or big they were. His wisdom was not coming with the age-factor, but from his knowledge, experience and culture to communicate. Clever, balanced, pleasant interlocutor, who was spreading the calmness around himself. In two words – a wise person, that one could seldom encounter nowadays in our busy life. The most terrible part is that, he will be missed not only by those whose lives were touched by him, but also by others who will feel the emptiness of him no longer being among us.
The Entrepreneur Voiko… His company is the Bulgarian pearl representing Canadian business all over the world. As Doctor of Technical Science (PhD) he founded and developed a company of high technology manufacturing to a degree to conduct business with the biggest world players in the automotive industry. From the building exterior, to the final product at the exit, his company shines with grace, professionalism, modernism and vision to the future.
We sincerely mourn together with Voiko’s family. Our sadness is expression of our love to him as professional, incredible entrepreneur and mostly to his deeds as Human Being.
May he rest in peace!
