Casimir Francis Majewski
Casimir Francis Majewski, 87, of Milford, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2018 in the loving presence of his family. Casimir overcame remarkable life circumstances, starting in Eastern Poland, surviving a childhood raid, famine, disease, deportation to Siberia and many other challenges during World War II. During that time, as an orphan, he was cared for by the great Rev. Lucjan Krolikowski, who led 4,000 children to numerous refugee camps in Africa leaving war torn Europe. Post-war, he was accepted into Canada, where he met his beloved wife of sixty years, the late Olga Majewski, and started a family and career as a lace weaver. Casimir's skill in lace led to a job offer at American Fabrics in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He relocated his family to Milford, where he lived out the rest of his life with devoted family and many friends in the Polish Community. Survivors include his brother, Reverend Father Francis Majewski of Beacon, NY, and four children, Jan Majewski and wife Karen Altieri of Largo, FL, Sonia Dudek of Milford, Dominique Millard and husband James of Fort Wayne, IN, and Peter Majewski and wife Kirsten Carbone of Essex. He is also survived by five beloved grandchildren, Spencer and Zachary Millard, Zoe Dudek, and Grace and Claire Majewski. Casimir's love for Polish cultural heritage never left him. He remained a devoted member of several Polish organizations throughout his life. He was also the host of a popular WNHU radio show, Poland in Music and Song, where he broadcast music that he personally curated from Poland, each Sunday morning for 45 years. He retired from the show this past fall. Casimir is loved and admired by many, and he will be greatly missed. All are invited to call on Sunday from 4-7 p.m. at the Smith Funeral Home, 135 Broad Street, Milford. A Christian Mass will be held on Monday, December 24th at 10:00 a.m. at Saint Ann Church, 501 Naugatuck Avenue, Milford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Casimir's name to a Polish charity of your choosing. To leave a condolence, please visit www.georgejsmithandson.com
