Edwin J. Wojciechowski (85), of Willowbrook, passed away peacefully on May 12, 2020. Beloved husband to Jean (Krzystofiak),loving father to Susan (John) Alexander and (late) David Wenckunas, cherished grandfather to Nicole (Daniel) Herbin, Kristy Alexander, Eric Alexander, Bryan and Kevin Wenckunas and great-grandfather to Madeline and Jacob.

Dear brother to Eugene (Barbara) Wojciechowski, (late) Leonard (Jackie) Wojciechowski, Lorraine Wojciechowski and Joann (George) Gorecki. Devoted uncle to Marc, Jennifer, (late) Danny, Michael, Brian, Debbie, Lisa, Frank, Cathy, Lenny, Timmy, Kelly and Debbie and many great-nieces and nephews.

Ed was a true family man who embraced all the young people who entered his life – his favorite activities with them were pumpkin carving, attending his grandchildren's sporting events and telling stories. He was also an avid fisherman with many great tales of going to Canada and Bass & Gill Club. His passion was to bring life to his garden and knew where every plant or flower came from in his yard. His love of travel brought him to many places worldwide, but his favorite trip was to Italy. He will be missed by the many whose lives he touched.

Private family service at a future date due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Mr. Ed and Mrs. Jean were mine and my brothers next door neighbors all throughout our childhood and growing up. Mr. Ed was always welcoming, patient, and friendly towards us. I dont know how he put up with all of the semi-annual popcorn/cookie dough sales, the summer days of random kids running and hiding in his yard playing home tree, and the late night basketball games in the street - but he did so with a big smile on his face and you can always count on being welcomed into his house just to catch up. Heaven gained another beautiful soul this week! Our love and prayers go out to Mrs. Jean and the rest of the family.
