Henry Benjamin Sarbiewski Obituary
Henry Benjamin Sarbiewski passed away at home with his family by his side into the arms of God on January 14, 2011 at 12pm. He was born July 21, 1931 to Bruno and Blanche Sarbiewski in Ashtabula, Ohio, where he learned the value of hard work on the family farm. He joined the Air Force before starting his own family. Henry continued his military career as a reservist while furthering his education, becoming a small business owner, and working other jobs including a long career with Puget Power as an accountant and later as the office manager in Cle Elum, WA before retiring in the early 1990's. During this time he owned and operated the Timberlodge restaurant in Cle Elum with his wife, Cynthia Sarbiewski. Henry was a dedicated community advocate and together with his wife, they ran a consignment shop to raise funds to open a community pool. Henry was a loyal friend and family man who taught his family the importance of hard work and education. A perpetual jokester, Henry, with a twinkle in his eye, kept those around him laughing.

He was preceded in death by his second wife Cynthia Sarbiewski as well as his sisters
Jane LaVallee, Lottie Golombiowski, Helen Hietanen and Henrietta Stasko.

Henry is survived by his wife Louise, two brothers Ted and Ed Sarbiewski, children Robert Sarbiewski of Thailand and Diane Sarbiewski-Keltner of Puyallup, WA and stepchildren Becky Osbourne, Rick Graham, Roberta Spencer, Monte Graham, and Aaron Graham. Henry, or Papa as he was known, had a soft spot for his numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, who he enjoyed spending time with.
Funeral services will be held Thursday January 20th at La Paloma funeral home of Las Vegas, Nevada. Graveside services to follow at the Southern Nevada Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Henry's name to the Disabled American Veterans.
