Clement J. Kiczuk's Obituary

Clement J. Kiczuk, beloved father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Judge (ret.), Commander USN (ret) passed away August 29 at the age of 87 in the loving and grateful arms of his children. He was born in Norwich, Connecticut, the son of Joseph and Leonarda Kiczuk. World War II brought him to the courageous and distinguished service of his country and to the chance encounter with Celeste who became his wife of 50 years.  For his three children, Maryanne, Stephen and Clement, Jr., he became a model of duty, honor, integrity, love and wisdom. He retired from service as an Administrative Law Judge in March of this year to the great regret of his colleagues. In addition to his children and grandchildren, he is survived by his brother, Rev. Casimir.  He was pre-deceased on October 2, 2003 by his brother, Eugene Kiczuk.   Z. Bogiem go with God. A Mass of Christian Burial for Clement and Eugene will be celebrated on October 11, 2003 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, 120 Cliff St., Norwich, CT.  Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery.  Calling hours will be held on Friday, October 10, from 6-8 p.m. at the Woyasz and Son funeral Home, 141 Central Ave., Norwich.
