Chester Krzyzaniak, 90, of Enon, Ohio, formerly of Golden and Butterfield, passed away Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2010, in Community Hospital, Springfield, Ohio.
He was born May 24, 1920, in Chicago, Ill., the son of Michael and Julia (Wojcicka) Krzyzaniak. On Aug. 15, 1957, in Hinsdale, Ill., he was united in marriage to Adaline Wendt, who preceded him in death on Aug. 9, 1984. Also preceding him in death were his parents.
Survivors include: his son, Perry Krzyzaniak and his wife, Kathleen, of Enon, Ohio; and one grandson.
He grew up in Cicero, Ill., where he received his education. During World War II, he was inducted in the United States Army, serving from Dec. 9, 1942, until Oct. 2, 1943. Shortly after his discharge, he met and married Adaline. He worked for Joseph T. Reyerson Steel Company for 44 years, retiring as supervisor. He and Adaline moved to Golden in 1977 to make their home. He was actively riding and training horses until his 80th birthday. He moved to Butterfield from Golden where he lived for about six years. He attended Cowboys for Christ Church in Cassville before moving to Enon, Ohio, in February 2002 so he could be closer to his son and family.
