Luzinski, Chester Sylvester (18 December 1923 - 18 July 2013)

Chester S. Luzinski, age 89, of rural Thorp, passed away on Thursday, July 18, 2013, at his home. A graveside service was held on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at the Riverside Cemetery, about one mile west of Withee, WI on County Rd. X.

Chester Sylvester Luzinski was born on December 18, 1923, on the family farm near Lublin, WI to Teofil and Ella (Kostick) Luzinski. He was raised on the farm, attending rural school and passed away on the farm. Chet was a dairy farmer most of his life, and worked his land for crops to feed “his girls” (the cows). During his early life he had a few side jobs, but spent most of his time working the farm. He cared for his mother until her passing in 1982. Chet was a master of one-liners, always providing an “int4eresting” analogy with colorful language for any situation.

Chet was an avid hunter, always wondering if “the big one” was around. He enjoyed the challenge of jigsaw puzzles, especially those with outdoor animal scenes.

Chet is survived by nephews: Michael and Ronald Luzinski; nieces: Kathy Serold and Darlene Hogan; his valued social workers and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers: Steve, Mike and Louie Luzinski; and one sister, Ann Krzyzanski.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Chester’s honor may be given to Taylor County Human Services, Taylor County Commission on Aging, or your favorite charity.
