Roy Sadowsky Obituary
ROY SADOWSKY Born in Los Angeles Oct. 18, 1934, died of cancer, March 26, 2013 at home in West Covina. He was buried at Forest Lawn, Covina on Friday, March 29. Roy was known by his family, friends, work colleagues and neighbors to be always cheerful and helpful. He was known to be a straight talker. Roy was an avid car enthusiast. He enjoyed talking about cars and attending car shows. His 1957 Thunderbird was always going to be restored, after the wonderful deck and gazebo were completely finished. It was because of Roy that the family moved to Corona in 1949 to a small chicken ranch and orange grove. It was demanding work and a time when Southern California was known for its citrus groves and the whistle from the Sunkist factory announced lunch time for workers and the town of 13,000. For over 50 years, Roy was a member of the Piledrivers, Bridge, Wharf and Dock Builders Local 2375. He was a mentor to many and gladly directed others to available jobs. He was proud of his work on freeways, bridges and other large construction jobs he worked on. He and his union brothers and friends shared a common bond of work well done. Roy graduated from Corona High School in the 1950's. He received his Associate of Arts Degree from Chaffe College and completed 3 years of Engineering School at Cal Poly, Pomona. He is survived by his caring wife of 50 years, Marion; a loving son, Matthew, and twin grandsons Jared and Joseph. He also leaves behind his sister, Sarah of Los Angeles and sister, Clara Goffman of Riverside. He is missed.
