LEWANDOWSKI - John Of Cheektowaga, NY, went into the arms of Our Lord on May 25, 2014, at the age of 91, beloved husband of 52 years to Irene (nee Krakowiak) Lewandowski; dearest father of Linda (Steven) Przybyla; loving grandfather of Christopher Jank, Nicole (Thaddeus) Janicki, Jared Przybyla; brother of the late Maryann Rozek; also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Friends are invited. John loved to read and had a remarkable penchant for remembering numbers, statistics, family events and history. His values were strong as well as his opinions, and he never failed to "say it like it is." John was a graduate of Canisius HS and Canisius College in 1943 with a B.A. degree. John was a WWII Army veteran who served his country honorably. He served in France with the 195th Army General Hospital as a Medic and later as a Combat Medic with the 78th Infantry Division in Germany. After the war he attended Simmons School of Embalming and Mortuary Science in Syracuse, and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science, eventually earning a funeral director's license. He was a member of the American Legion Adam Plewacki Post #799. He was an avid Yankees fan his entire life. He belonged to Canisius College Alumni and the Polish National Alliance of America. He had a strong commitment to his family and was a man of great faith. "Sleep with the angels, dear John, until we meet again."
