PIUROWSKI, Jerome J. Jerome J. Piurowski, of South Windsor, died, Saturday (December 1, 2007), at St. Francis Hospital following a brief illness. He was born in Amsterdam, NY on February 19, 1938, the son of late Joseph and Helen (Szurek) Piurowski. He was the beloved husband of Lorraine (Sinkewicz) Stanek Piurowski. In addition to his wife, he his survived by three children, Tere Violette and her husband, Kirk, of Enfield, Michael Piurowski and his wife, Maureen, of New Port Richey, FL and Mark Piurowski of Buford, GA. He is also survived by three step children, Peter LaBarre and his wife Sherrie, of Plainfield, Bethany LaBarre and her husband, Warren Beckford, of Bloomfield, Donald LaBarre of Manchester, and Brenda Powers and her husband, William, of Simsbury. He is also survived by his dear cousins, Sandra and Al Korona, and their children, of Hagerman, NY and by his sister-in-law, Jean Piurowski, and her children, of Amsterdam, NY. He also leaves 11 grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his first wife, Helga (Wolfe) Piurowski and his brother, Donald Piurowski, formerly of Amsterdam, NY. He graduated from Amsterdam High School in 1957 and from Pratt & Whitney's Tool, Die and Gage Maker program in 1960. He served in the U.S. Army as a communications wire chief from 1957-1960. He was employed as a machinist by Johnson Gage Company in Bloomfield for over 30 years. Jerry was one of those few individuals who loved his job and regarded his co-workers as a second family. Jerry loved the water, whether ocean or pond, but his soul belonged to the Great Sacandaga Lake in Mayfield, NY, where he spent over 60 summers sharing his love of boating, fishing, and swimming with family and friends. He was equally delighted with the budding of daffodils in spring and the changing colors of leaves in the fall. A gifted storyteller, he also wrote poetry, loved to read mysteries, and was known for frequently saying, "Life is for living". A special thanks is extended to the wonderful staff at St. Francis Hospital, to Dr. Himari and Dr. Quadri, for their dedication and support. A Celebration of his Life will be held on Saturday, December 8, at 4 p.m., at Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Road, South Windsor. His family will receive friends, Saturday, from 2 - 4 p.m., at the funeral home prior to the celebration of his life. Please omit flowers.

I was introduced to Jerry around 1991 by my wife Bunny. He was always a gentleman and a friend. I feel terrible that I didn't hear of Jerry's passing until this week. Please accept my sincere condolences.He will be missed .
