BOLEK, Julian

BOLEK - Julian Of Lackawanna, March 21, 2014, father of Donna (Michael) Spader, Helena McClenahan and Barbara (John) Schwartz; grandfather of Sarah, Mike and Evan Spader, Nicholas and Amanda Schwartz and the late Jessica McClenahan. Julian's enthusiasm for life and tenacious courage was evident as he role modeled his words, "You take what comes". Born in Oswiecim, Poland in 1925, he endured and rose above the travesties brought by WWII. Desiring a better life and vowing to never go hungry again, his venture brought him to the United States where his steadfast work ethics and compassion for family was his main priority. Visitation Thursday 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at NORMAN E. GANNON & SONS, Inc., 1075 Ridge Rd., Lackawanna (824-4000), where services will be held at 1:00 PM. Entombment to follow at Holy Cross Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages memorials to the American Cancer Society. Further information available at
