Zaborowski, Wayne (1941? - 23 NOV 1963)

Thirteen hunters, including one from Carl County and another from Taylor County, are dead on the first two days of Wisconsin’s nine-day 1963 deer hunting season.

Four of the victims, including both of those from central Wisconsin, died of gunshot wounds, and nine suffered heart attack in the woods, one near Neillsville.

Killed by gunshot the opening weekend were Ray George, 17, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.); Way Zaborowski, Lublin in Taylor County; Robert Laufenberg, 16, Alma Center, and William Niggemann, 40, of Westboro.

Wayne Zaborowski of Lublin was hit by a shot from a rifle dropped by his 75-year-old grandfather, John Zdrojkowski of Thorp (Clark Co.), as he helped the older man across a stream in Rusk County.

Funeral services were held at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lublin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, with burial in the church cemetery.

A graduate of Thorp High School, Zaborowski had been employed at Duluth since graduating from an electronics school at Eau Claire. In addition to his parents he is survived by a brother.
