December 12, 2005

Anthony Milton Kowalczyk, a retired clothing cutter, died Friday of renal cell carcinoma at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie. The Pasadena resident was 71.

Mr. Kowalczyk was born in Baltimore and graduated from Patterson High School. He later served in the Army during the Korean War.

Mr. Kowalczyk worked as a clothing cutter for I.C. Isaacs & Co. for about 40 years and retired in 1992. He met his wife at work.

"He worked on the cutting floor, and I worked on the finishing end," recalled the former Jeraldine Robinette. "When he went to the men's room or to the soda machine he would give me the eye."

During his retirement, Mr. Kowalczyk spent his free time working in his yard and feeding birds and squirrels.

A funeral Mass will be offered at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Jane Frances de Chantal Roman Catholic Church, 8499 Virginia Ave., Pasadena.

In addition to his wife of 44 years, survivors include a daughter, Kathy Rosewell of Lexington, Ky.; a sister, Mary Antkowiak of Baltimore; and two grandchildren. A son, James A. Kowalczyk, died in 1966.
