It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of Alexander MIlintschuk on February 4, 2024, at the age of 75.
He was a devoted husband to his wife of 52 years Barbara (nee Fries). A loving father to his daughters AnnaMarie Chowaniec (predeceased), Christina, and his son Robert. A caring father-in-law to Joseph Chowaniec and Jessica Milintschuk. A doting PopPop to his 3 granddaughters Jessica Chowaniec, Caitlyn Chowaniec, and Vivian Milintschuk.
He was a warmhearted brother to his older sister Lubow, affectionately known as Luba, and her late husband Luis ‘Alfredo’ Nunez as well as his late younger brother Wasily, affectionately known as Wes, and his wife Denise. He was a tenderhearted uncle to his many nieces and nephews, as well as their spouses and children. He was a beloved son of his late parents Ostop and Sarafina.
He was known by Alex, Al, for some Yashu, Dad, Pops, and PopPop. For the majority of his life, he was a hard worker in the trucking industry with a few companies. Always dependable for anyone one who needed him. When he was not working, he could be found at a number of sporting events or dance competitions for his children and grandchildren. One of his favorite things was having family gatherings, especially at Christmas time, even though he was quiet and reserved. He was never too busy to play games with his granddaughters and it was always a laugh when he got to wear the tiara from Pretty Pretty Princess, or donning a few wigs and feather boas during dress up sessions. Watching sports on TV and his favorite old movies, especially the ones in black and white that the grandkids would ask if the TV was broken, became a way to pass time as he got older and the pandemic restricted outings. Time did take its toll on him though. And being the person he was, asking for help for himself was a hard task. He will be missed by many more people than can be listed, as he touched many lives.
Visitation Saturday February 10, 2024 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at the Gosselin Funeral Home 660 New Dover Road Edison, NJ.
