Paul E. Gorzalkowski, 84, better known as Paul Gusky, passed away Monday, April 20, 2015.
Born Jan. 22, 1931, in DuBois, he was the son of the late Joseph and Victoria Nowak Gorzalkowski. Paul married Nancy L. Bellingham in March of 1950 in DuBois. She preceded him in death Nov. 17, 2003.
Paul was a 1949 graduate of the DuBois Area High School and was active in school sports. After graduation, he attended the DuBois Business College.
Paul retired from the B & O Railroad car shops in DuBois and was the owner/manager of a well-established business, Gusky's Bar and Restaurant in Sandy Township.
Later in life, he pursued home improvement sales and was also a licensed real estate agent.
Paul was a veteran of the Korean War and attained the rank of Master Sergeant with an honorable discharge.
An affable "character," he was born with the gift of gab and loved a good joke.
He loved to laugh and lived every day to its fullest.
He enjoyed sports, golfing, coaching Little League baseball, and had a passion for gambling and visiting casinos from Las Vegas to Atlantic City.
He was a member of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, the American Legion, VFW, and Polish Citizens Club.
He was the true definition of a father and the greatest dad two brothers could ask for.
Paul is survived by his two sons, Thomas and Jeffrey Gusky, both of DuBois; three grandchildren: Kaleena Thomas, James Paul Gusky, and Ciera Gusky; his eldest sister, Helen Connor, Machias, N.Y.; his longtime companion, Lucy Kline; and grandchildren from his extended family: Kameron and Kolton Kemmer, Michael Carcella and Clayton Ross.
He was also preceded in death by an infant sister, Bertha; two sisters, Victoria and Elizabeth; and a brother, Ambrose.
At Paul's request, there will be no public visitation. A celebration of Paul's life will be announced at a later date.
