Obituary of Stanislaus G. Kedzierski

Please share a memory of Stanislaus to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Stanislaus George Kedzierski Stan Kedzierski, 77, of Staten Island, passed away on December 30th, 2022, after a brief illness. Stan’s greatest joy was family. He was the beloved husband of Linda Kedzierski, having just passed their 51st anniversary, and dedicated father and grandfather, where he took pride in being his family’s biggest supporter. Stan came from humble beginnings, born in a war camp in Germany during World War II, and subsequently immigrating with his family to Newark, NJ after being sponsored by a family in the United States. Stan spent the next 75 years achieving the American dream. After graduating from high school in Newark, he joined the work force. However, Stan, always one to better himself, enrolled in night school classes at Fairleigh Dickinson University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering in 1979. This is impressive enough to accomplish while working, but he also did it while his family grew to 5, including 3 children under 4. After graduation, Stan ultimately found his way to a job as an Electrical Engineer for the Metropolitan Transit Authority where he worked for the next 25 years until he retired in 2019. Stan’s knowledge of circuitry and attention to detail kept the riders of the NYC subway system moving and safe for many years. He loved his time at the Transit Authority, whether it was office jokes with his colleagues or testing his designs for new train line signals on the tracks, his passion for the job was always present. Despite his commitment to his work, his true pride and joy was his family. Anyone you ask will always mention how they cannot remember Stan without Linda right there by his side. And to this day, he holds the unofficial record for numbers of trips to sports and other children’s activities for over 2 decades straight. He continued his role of the family’s biggest cheerleader with his grandkids, attending hockey games and other activities across the NY Metro area. Retirement gave him more opportunities to spend time with his grandkids, both at the Jersey Shore and in California. When covid prevented time together in person, he embraced Zoom and Facetime. He used these technologies to help his grandkids master sight words and math during remote learning. He was likely able to demonstrate the patience required for these activities using techniques he learned studying Tai Chi for over 30 years. This was a passion he embraced and invested in diligently every day. This continued throughout his illness, where practicing using videos of his long-time instructor gave him strength and peace. Stan was pre-deceased by his parents Stanislaus and Marianna Kedzierski, brothers Walter, Eugene, Joseph & Michael. He is survived by his beloved wife Linda, children Dr. Alexander (Agnes) Kedzierski of Naperville, Illinois, Jason (Joy) Kedzierski of Guam (CDR- United States Navy), Frances (Peter) Matte of Hoboken, NJ, & Joshua (Sandy) Kedzierski of Morgan Hill, CA, his 6 grandchildren Matthew, Stanislaus, Jackson, Jacob, Luke, and Gavin, his sister-in-law Carolyn Kedzierski, his sister Helen Kedzierski, and nieces & nephews. He will be missed by all.
