Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Dear Family and Friends,
I am in the process of creating this webpage in honor of my Daddy. I will hopefully have it ready soon with alot more information & photographs.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Henry Wojcik who was born in Poland on Aug 06, 1927 and passed away on December 13, 2004 at the age of 77. We will remember him forever.

Henry was born in 1927 in Szczawnica, Poland. At a very young age, he enlisted in the Polish Army to serve during World War II. In 1951, he emigrated to the United States and was called to serve in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. After his discharge, he took up residence in the Akron area. He completed his education of tool and die design from Alliance College and became an accomplished draftsman, working until his retirement from Akron Packaging and Machinery in 1989. He also participated in many cultural and fraternal organizations, including the Alli ance of Poles of America Group 148, where he was a longtime financial secretary, Polish American Veterans, Post 32, P.A.C., PRCU of A, and an active member of St. Hedwig Catholic Church, where he served as a commentator for the Polish Mass.

Henry now joins his parents, Jan and Stanislawa Wojcik of Poland, and cousin, John Wansovich of Akron, who have gone before him to rest in the Kingdom of our Lord. Left, to cherish his memory, are his wife and best friend, Aleksandra; son, Arthur; daughter and son-in-law, Adrianne and Rick Brown; grandchildren and best buddies, Anthony and Nathaniel Brown; brother and sister-in- law, Boleslaw and Henia Wojcik of Poland, and their children in Poland and Canada; sister-in- law and brother-in-law, Krystyna and Joe Szewczyk; son, Yuri; and many relatives in the United States and Poland.

A very special thanks to the emergen cy staff at Akron General Medical Center, particularly Dr. "Jack" and his team of doctors and nurses, the resident doctors and nurses who cared for Henry in the CCU unit, Dr. Fantelli and his colleagues, and the entire staff at Edwin Shaw Hospital.

I said to the Lord, `You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?' The LORD replied: `My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.'
