Walter J. Jaskiewicz, 91, of New Brighton, passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at Heritage Valley, Beaver.

He was born on November 1, 1930 in Tyrawa Solna, Poland, and immigrated to the United States in 1950. Walter arrived at Ellis Island on the Batory 1936 passenger ship of the Polish Gdynia America Line and made his way to Beaver Falls where he met and married the love of his life, Edith (Dolly) Maljevec.

He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Edith Theresa (Maljevec) Jaskiewicz; two sons, Dr. David (Cynthia Frederick, Esq.)

  1. I worked with Walter in my youth in the meat department in New Brighton, I remember him as a fine human being , a trusted and loyal employee. A man who overcame so many hardships in his youth to raise a fine family . I believe he is the last of the original meat room crew.. I have fond memories of these men who worked so hard for my father. God bless you Walter you were a fine man

  2. Thank you David for your kind words about my Dad. To me, he was just an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. I learned many valuable lessons from him, including hard work and the importance of family, as you mentioned in your comments. He was my Dad and my Friend, I miss him very much. Thank you again, sincerely, Dr David W Jaskiewicz.
