Ray Surowski Obituary
RAY SUROWSKI Ray was born August 1922 and passed away Dec. 16, 2014 of natural causes. He is survived by son Peter Surowski of Canyon Lake; daughter Paula Bowen of Acworth Georgia, and 10 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by son David and wife Jean. Ray worked for National Cash Register company as a business machine repairman for approximately 40 years. He will be remembered for his service to his country for his stint in the Army/Air Force and was also a Prisoner of War (POW) in a German prison camp for 16 months, and was released at the end of World War II. His family enjoyed hearing about his many war stories, some were amusing, some much more serious. He will also be remembered for some of his hobbies. He was a "master" model ship builder and many of his models were very elaborate. He made each piece by hand using small machines and tools, some of which he designed and built himself, producing an end-result ship that was truly a sight to behold. He also loved to spend time with his family and loved to take his family on deep sea fishing trips, instilling a love of the ocean in many family members. Ray's service was held December 30, 2014 at Riverside National Cemetery with full military honors. For any further information, please email @ [email protected]
