Walter T. Wolejsza Obituary
Walter T. Wolejsza

Lincroft - Walter Wolejsza, 92, was reunited with his wife, Ann, on March 7, 2018. He was born and raised in Brooklyn and resided in Lincroft for the past 59 years. He met Ann while working in the Defense Industry in the 1940's. He served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War 2in the Philippines. He served in the Korean Conflict as well.

Walter worked for New York Telephone Company and later retired from Lucent. He was a Life Member of the Lincroft Fire Company. Walter was also a Past Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus. He had a passion for golf, bowling, and was an avid sports fan.

For a while, he ran Walt's Limo driving his kids to the airport. Anytime any of his kids needed help with a project around their house, they just called Walt. He could fix anything. You could also always get a great argument about politics.

He dearly loved his children, grandchildren and great-granddaughters. Until his last days, his concern was for the continuing care of his "special needs" daughter, Diane.

Walter was predeceased by his wife, Ann and brother Chester Wolejsza, and survived by his sister, Catherine Ballman. He is also survived by his daughters, Kathi Hatch and husband, Pete, Janet Goldrich and husband, Ian, and Diane Wolejsza; sons, Bill Wolejsza and Jim Wolejsza and wife, Karen.
