Wasilewski, Peter John (Pete)  
PAXINOS — On Sunday, May 22, 2016, Peter "Pete" John Wasilewski, 57, of Paxinos, traded in his well-worn, used body for angel wings. He was born April 9, 1959, a highly anticipated birth because he was the baby of the family, nine years since Janet was born and the only boy to Dorothy (Williams) and Peter B. Wasilewski, in Shamokin State General Hospital. The neighbor, Mrs. Chango, who had the only phone on the block, fired off a shotgun to make the announcement. Pete was a police officer in Kulpmont from 1977 to 1991, chief of police for the last seven years of his career. He also owned Pete's Small Engine Repair. He could fix anything and was always thinking out of the box. His leaving this world is breaking the heart of his best friend, Karen, who he shared a fun-loving, hard-working relationship of 40 years. They were married Dec. 27, 1986, at their home in Kulpmont, by Magistrate Wilbur Reidinger. In addition to his wife, Karen, Pete is survived by two sisters, DiAnn Kaseman and her husband, Dave, of Coal Township, and Janet Stasney, of Coal Township; nieces, Tracy and her husband, Zac Brown, and Debra Miller (his goddaughter); nephews, David and his wife, Tiffany Kaseman, and Michael Stasney IV; great nieces and nephews, William and Vivian Miller, David and Peter (his namesake) Kaseman, Kyran and Kasey Brown; his "Special Boys" Jonathan and Tyler Golazeski; and many cousins. He will be missed by many friends who he touched in his life. Pete met adversity with a sense of humor and grace. He would not want you to cry for him, but laugh, tell stories and have a great time while thinking of him. Raise a glass and wish him "Nostrovia!" as he rides his tractor in heaven with all his angels. WASILEWSKI — Peter "Pete" John Wasilewski, of Paxinos. Relatives, friends and neighbors are invited to attend a graveside service at 1 p.m. Saturday at St. Casimir's Cemetery, Marion Heights, with the Rev. Joan Brown officiating. C.J. Lucas Funeral Home Inc., 1053 Chestnut St., Kulpmont, C.J. Lucas, supervisor, is assisting the family with arrangements. To send condolences to the family, go to www.cjlucasfuneralhome.com .
