CONWAY - Carl L. 76, of Marietta, GA, died September 10, 2013, surrounded by his loving family at St. Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta, GA. Mr. Conway was born on December 1, 1936 in Sloan, NY, to parents Leo and Natalie Cwiczewicz. He married his high school sweetheart, Glenda Marie Johnson, on September 26, 1959 at St. Agnes Church in Buffalo, NY. Mr. Conway's memories will be cherished by those survived by him including his devoted wife, Glenda, of 54 years; daughter Lisa Conway and grandson Gus Todd of Kennesaw, GA, daughter Caryn Conway and Jim Bowie, grandchildren Austin and Abby of Canton, GA and son Paul and daughter-in-law Gina Conway of Kennesaw. Also survived by sisters Leona Miller, Nanci McCarter, brother and sister-in-law Robert and Joanna Conway of Williamsville, NY, and brother and sister-in-law William and Marsha Conway of Putnam, CT. Mr. Conway graduated from Sloan High School in 1954. He began his career at Nu-Way Markets, which later became Acme Markets. He was the Warehouse Manager when he left in 1979. In 1980, he moved to Marietta, GA, where he worked for Food Lion and then retired from Circuit City in 2000. He was proud to say that he never missed a Buffalo Bills home game during his time spent there. In a long struggle to defeat leukemia, he succeeded with the inspiration and help of sister and marrow donor Nanci, as well as his three grandchildren. He used this inspiration to outlive the expectations of many of the doctors familiar with his condition. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, September 26 at 2 PM at St. Ann's Church in Marietta. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations be made to M.D. Anderson Hospital, 4515 Holcomb Blvd., Houston, TX 77030. Condolences may be left at www.GeorgiaFuneralCare.com.
