Daniel David Pobojewski Obituary
POBOJEWSKI, DANIEL DAVID; of Chelsea, MI; age 83; died at his home on Tuesday, May 1, 2012. He was born on February 7, 1929 in Grand Rapids, MI to Theodore and Bertha (Mieras) Pobojewski. Dan is survived by his wife, Sally, of Chelsea, MI, and his children, Judy Pobojewski of Hanover Park, IL, Mary Beth Hart of Geneva, IL, and John (Therese) Pobojewski of Elgin, IL. He also is survived by his sisters, Eleanore (Everett) Olson of Grand Rapids, MI and Mary Jane Reynolds of Ft. Wayne, IN; many nieces and nephews; and his much-loved dogs, Bonnie and Clyde. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Larry, Roman, and Charlie; and sisters, Dorothy and Clara. He was a graduate of Purdue University, attended Michigan State University, and played football for both schools. Although he always said he just fell over the goal line, Dan was known for scoring the winning touchdown in Purdue's 1953 upset victory over the then-undefeated Michigan State Spartans. He served as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and worked in marketing and sales for his entire career. Dan was deeply devoted to his faith and was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Chelsea for more than 20 years where he served as an usher and on the finance committee. He loved listening to jazz, family reunions, and the many dogs and cats his wife brought home over the years. But the proudest achievement of his life, and what brought him his greatest joy, was his children. He was deeply loved by his family and he will be missed. Visitation will be held on Friday, May 4, 2012 at St. Mary Catholic Church, 14200 E.
