John W. WISNIEWSKI Obituary


John W. Wisniewski, born on Sept. 5, 1944, died August 31, 2013, was the son of John A. and Phyllis L. Wisniewski (both deceased); and leaves a brother Robert; a nephew Christopher; and many loving cousins. John graduated from Georgetown University and served three tours of duty during the Vietnam War with the United States Air Force. He was a member of The Ravens.

John was present with his father and helped him through the difficulties of later life to his father's passing. Along with family, friends Richie, Cindy and Jill have been present with John through his difficulties in later life and ask for the benefit of the Peace That Passes All Understanding for him. Thank you.
