Walter Francis Lewandowski, son of the late Walter and Helen Lewandowski, was born on May 7th, 1932 in McClure, Pennsylvania. He was one of ten children.
Walter was united in holy matrimony to Edith (Giobbi) on November 22nd, 1956. They had two daughters, Janeanne (1959) and Susan (1964), with four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
As an avid hunter and fisherman, Walter was a kind and quiet man who loved to spend time outdoors, often finding peace in the forest and in nature. He loved buck season and fishing trips on his boat with his wife Edith. He happily served as President of the Dunbar Sportsman Club.
Walter was a man of deep faith and devotion, serving faithfully as an usher for St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church and never missing his nightly prayers. He was a proud fourth degree member of Knights of Columbus.
He served as a MP in the Korean War in which he received a United Nations Korean Service Medal and a National Defense service medal. Walter worked for 35 years for Wetterau Corp, spending many years on the road delivering goods for Fox Grocery in Pennsylvania and neighboring states.
Later in life, his love for the outdoors and his family came together as Walter worked with his children and grandchildren to set up operations at Fadeaway Farm in Butler County. He volunteered his vigorous strength and keen talents for landscaping and fixing farm equipment. He was voted Employee of the Month for fifteen consecutive years. The honor will now be retired.
Walter’s life will forever be cherished by his family. He is survived by his loving wife, Edith Lewandowski (Giobbi); Daughters Janeanne Krizner and Susan Wilson; Sister Esther Kruckvich; Brothers Henry and Robert Lewandowski; Grandchildren Amanda (Krizner) Ruane, Abby Krizner Madia, Annie (Wilson) Carlini, and Andrew Wilson; Great-Grandchild, Edith Madia. He is preceded in death by his brothers, Leo, Vincent, Charles, Eugene and Clarence Lewandowski and his sister Valerie Surlus.
