Sulewski, Zigmund J. (Chick) - Lake Hiawatha

(Chick) Sulewski, 78, of Lake Hiawatha, N.J., a lifelong businessman and animal lover, passed away peacefully in St. Clare's Hospital, Denville, N.J., on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, after a full life that still ended too soon following a recent heart attack. Chick was born April 8, 1938, in Nanticoke. His father, Zigmund Sulewski Sr., immigrated to the United States as a child with his family from Losewo, Poland. His mother was Katherine Balus Sulewski, from Glen Lyon. As a boy, Chick attended Holy Trinity School and the Nanticoke public schools. He attended Kutztown State College, where he played football. After college he served his country as a member of the U.S. Army in Germany. His business career started at a young age. He had his own newspaper route, helped his older brother, Robert, and cousins, Thomas Yatsko and Martin Kutz, selling produce in the summers, and by age 16 was managing a service station. After returning from his military service he briefly worked in finance and tool-and-die manufacturing. Chick moved to Parsippany, N.J., in the 1960s, and for 30 years he owned Denville Auto Center and operated a school bus company, Sulky Transport. He also earned his real estate license and sold properties well after his retirement. Chick's varied interests reflected his passion for life. He enjoyed working with machines, tinkering with his antique cars, boating on Lake Hopatcong and piloting his own airplane, as well as debating current events and his theories on thermodynamics. He also traveled with his father to visit his ancestral roots in Poland, and doted on the wildlife in his backyard and his own beloved cat, Thumper, and pug dog, Daisy. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He was predeceased by his siblings, Robert Suleski and Marianne Hill. He is survived by his loving sisters, Joanne Sulewski, M.D., Buffalo, N.Y.; and Eileen Grevera, Clarks Summit; as well as by his devoted nieces, Kathryn Ann Tomaino and Caryn Oplinger, and nephews, Robert Suleski, Kevin Grevera and Jonathan and Christopher Hill, VMD.
