Obituary Image

Jan Olszewski, 69, passed away on Friday, June 9, 2017 at his home.

He leaves his wife of 44 years, Daniela Olszewska, his four sons, Cezary, Krzysztof, Adrian, and Robert Olszewski; his 4 grandchildren Olyvia, Eric, Owen, and Patrick; and many close friends and family.

Jan was born and raised in Poland, where he met and wed to Daniela; and had his four sons. He journeyed to the United States to better support his family and ultimately build a better life.

In his early years in America he was a skilled mason, working hard to support his wife and four children, in hopes that they would one day prosper. As his sons grew older, so did he. That’s when his older sons decided that it was time for him to move away from the hard labor of masonry and do something more simple and relaxing. He spent the rest of his life working for Open Road Honda as a lot attendant. He took extreme pride in his work, making sure everything was in order and the lot was immaculate. He even documented his work by taking pictures with his camera.

Jan spent his spare time keeping his hands busy. Always undertaking projects around the house, big and small. His garden was his pride and joy, always sharing raspberries and strawberries with his grandchildren. He fell in love with cameras and always looked for an opportunity to take a picture.

Now Jan is watching over his family in heaven.
