Memory Eternal, Uncle Pete

It was 13 years ago today that my Uncle Pete passed. He left his loving wife (my now late Aunt Marianne), two daughters and two grandchildren.

He was born Peter Hruszczak on 16 October 1932 to Panko Hruszczak and Bessie Matys. His brother, Joseph, is my grandfather. I have many good memories of Uncle Pete.

The photo is from the newspaper announcement of his wedding to Marianne Sherman. They were married in February of 1956 at St. Cecilia's RC Church in Coatesville.

Before he married, he had served in Korea. He had been in the Army. He had enlisted on 10 February 1953 and was released on 22 December 1954. The photo is of him obviously in uniform at that time. I obtained a digital copy from my cousin, one of his daughters, awhile back.

May His Memory Be Eternal.
