Edward Joseph Krygoski

11 décembre 192120 juillet 2021

On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, Edward Krygoski, loving companion and father of 3, passed away at the age of 99. He was born on December 11, 1921 in East Chicago, IN to Jacob and Balbina Krygoski. He was preceded in death by his wife Margaret who passed away at the age of 46, and his 11 brothers and sisters.

He served in Northern France and Central Europe during WWII, where he earned a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts. After the war, he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from Purdue University. He later married Margaret Mihalik and raised 3 daughters, Carol (Tom), Linda and Martha (Rich). After retiring as an Supervising Engineer at Inland Steel, he met Lorraine Mills who remained his life long and devoted companion. In retirement he enjoyed traveling with Lorraine, ballroom dancing, tennis and biking along the Highland bike path.

Ed will be remembered for his devotion to his family and friends, his quick wit and amazing ability to fix anything that was broken. He believed in a simple, practical life and the importance of getting a good education. He will be missed for his companionship and his BIG personality.

He is survived by his 3 daughters, Lorraine and many nieces and nephews. Per his wishes, there is no formal service planned. Donations may be sent to Honor Flight Chicago, 9701 W Higgins Road, Suite 310, Rosemont, IL 60018-4703

My heartfelt condolences go to Carol, Martha , Linda and the rest of the Krygoski family on the loss of their father and loved one.
Carol and I were best friends in high school. We spent many a night downstairs giggling for hours! Not once did Mr. Krygoski come down to tell us to be quiet! He was a real trooper!
Mr. Krygoski loved tennis. Some of his favorite times were in Tennessee when Carol got tickets for special matches.
He also loved bicycling. Mr. Krygoski loved being busy.
He was a WWII veteran. He served our country honorably .
Mr. Krygoski will be sadly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Dad’s FIRST E-mail.
He was always interested in learning new things.
I recall how shocked he was when he realized that he had to learn to TYPE in order to use the keyboard…
