Ronald W. Gutowski

AGE: 76 • Newark

Ronald W. Gutowski, 76, peacefully passed away following a brief illness on Thursday, November 3, 2016. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Ronald was born in Wilmington on May 14, 1940, son of the late Walter and Helen (Machulski) Gutowski. A graduate of Brown Vocational School, he served with the Delaware Army National Guard and was an apprentice electrician with Taub Electric. Ronald joined the Chrysler Corporation, where he worked as an electrician and retired in 2002 after 38 years of service.

Ronald was a life time member of St. Hedwig Parish, as well as a member of the Pulaski Legion. A talented handy man, he took great pride in the care of his home. He enjoyed fishing, weekly trips to Delaware Park, and trips to Lewes and Chatham, MA. His greatest joy was time with his family, especially his beloved grandchildren.

Ronald will be dearly missed by his wife of 55 years, Joan M. (Holmes) Gutowski; his children, Sloan C. Gutowski and wife, Michelle, Beth H. Burke and husband, David; and his grandchildren, Annabelle, Lily and Aidan Burke, Josephine, Elena and Alexander Gutowski. He is also survived by his brother, Gery Gutowski and wife, Margie; and his sister, Joanne Roslan.

He was predeceased by his sister, Annette Martin.
