William “Bill” Kolodziejski, 85, of Port Charlotte, Fla., passed away Monday, Feb. 10, 2014.
He was born March 18, 1928, in Wilmington, Del.
Bill served our country in World War II, both in the Merchant Marine and the U.S. Navy. At DuPont, he made his career as an electrician. After retirement, he and his wife continued their enjoyment for three more decades of traveling, sailing and socializing from their retirement home in Port Charlotte. Uncharacteristically of this gregarious man, Bill quietly completed his time on Earth. He will be missed by his many friends, health care teams and family.
Bill is survived by his sister, Joanne Pokoiski of Maryland; and many nieces, nephews and extended family across the country. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of nearly six decades, Fay (nee Lister); his sister, Florence Gawinski; and his parents, Bill and Rose Kolodziejski.
Interment will be at Sarasota National Cemetery in Sarasota, Fla.
Arrangements are by National Cremation Society of Port Charlotte.
