The Lutherville resident was 72. "As soon as you step through the front door of 524 S. Washington St., it hits you: the spicy, smoky, garlicky and altogether unmistakable smell of tradition," said a 2005 Baltimore Sun article about Mr. Ostrowski and his family business, Ostrowski's Famous Polish Sausage.

In Baltimore's sausage world, there are two Ostrowskis. There is Ostrowski's on Washington Street, a 94-year-old Polish sausage shop that was recently purchased from the Ostrowski family by John Reusing, owner of the neighboring tavern Bad Decisions. Two blocks north, there is Ostrowski of Bank Street, which has been making and selling sausages since 1976. If you see Ostrowski products in grocery stores, they're from Ostrowski of Bank Street. Ostrowski of Bank Street was opened in 1976 by Victor Ostrowski, whose grandfather founded the original Washington Street sausage works in 1919.
