Cisewski, Brian Gerard  
Cisewski, Brian Gerard Brian Gerard Cisewski passed peacefully into the hands of the Lord surrounded by loving family and friends on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. His beautiful smile, quick wit and whacky sense of humor will be remembered by many. Brian was born in Stevens Point, WI on February 25, 1958 to Leonard and Bernadette Cisewski. He was the fifth of eleven children and loved sports, especially baseball, at which he excelled. He played American Legion baseball as a teenager and was eventually scouted by the L.A. Dodgers to pitch, but chose a career in the military and a relationship with his loving wife-to-be, Ana Goico, over the uncertainty of a career in major league baseball. Brian and Ana met in the Air Force where he served honorably for 21 years. He served in Turkey, England and various bases in the U.S. Brain was named Air Force MP of the year and retired as a Master Sargent in 1997. After retiring, Brain and Ana moved to Virginia Beach to be close to Ana's parents and help as they aged. Brain always went out of his way to be helpful to others; he gave completely of himself without hesitation, as a confidante, teacher, brother and friend to many. Brian began a second career, graduating from Hampton University with a Masters in Architecture in May 2010. Several firms in the Hampton Roads area benefited from his skill as a draftsman and architect-in-training since his move to Virginia Beach. Brian has been a faithful member of the Church of the Ascension for many years. Brian is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 38 years, Ana Cisewski, his sisters Lisa (Randy) Raikowski of Quinton VA, Kathy Cisewski (fiancée Rick Shuda) of Deerbrook, WI, his brothers Gary (Clara) of Plover, WI, Ron (Gail) of Whiting, WI, Wayne (Debra) of Plover, WI, Don (Amy) of Stevens Point, WI, Jeffrey (Laura) of Williamsburg, VA, Larry (friend Dan) of Marinette WI, Thomas (Diane) of Stevens Point, WI, mother-in-law Cecilia Goico, brother-in-law Jose (Anne) Goico of West Hartford, CT and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, other family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother David and father-in-law Jose Goico. The family would like to extend special thanks to friends Carole Dicklin and Ruth Brogan who have given so much of their energy and support during these difficult times. Funeral services and reception for Brian will be held on Friday, April 24, 11 a.m. at Church of the Ascension, 4853 Princess Anne Rd., Virginia Beach, VA 23462.
