SMSgt Edward “Kaz” Kasiewicz passed away peacefully on the 4 June 2019 at the age of 86. Kaz was born 13 June 1932 in Stamford, Connecticut, and a 1950 Darien High School graduate in Darien, Connecticut.

Kaz enlisted in the United States Air Force where he proudly served his country for 23 years. Kaz’s service included the conflicts in both Korea and Vietnam. In addition, he and his family traveled overseas with tours in Okinawa, Japan and Germany. Upon returning stateside, they traveled the country before his retirement at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Kaz’s military dedication did not end with his active separation from the USAF. For the next 20 years he did what he loved doing so much, “Military Aircraft Maintenance” as a Civil Service Representative. Ed accepted an assignment to Saudi Arabia when his squadron (438th Fighter Group, Hill AFB, Ogden, UT) was deployed during the startup of “Operation Desert Storm”.

After Kaz’ second and final retirement, he settled in to his golden years as a loving and giving husband, father, and grandfather where he embraced his second biggest hobby, “EATING”! “Most people eat to live, Ed lived to eat”!

Kaz was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Carmella; and grandson, Timmy. Kaz is survived by his supportive daughter, Cheryl (Don) Pugh; two sons, Tim and James Kasiewicz; brother, Allen (Linda) Kasiewicz of New Hampshire; sister, Lorraine Hansen of Sun City, Arizona; two granddaughters, Jennifer (Tony) Sheata, and Angela (Derek) Elder; grandson, Andrew (Brittnae) Pugh; two great grandchildren, Charlie and Carmella Sheata; several nieces and nephews; and extended family members and friends. A memorial service and burial will be held Tuesday, 18 June at 11:20a.m. at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City, Nevada 89005.

Uncle Eddie / Ed ... I have fond memories of him from over the years ... ranging from faint memories in Darien, at Nana & Jaja’s house ... touring Nellis Air Force Base and seeing the Thunderbirds ... coming out for a summer visit and staying with him and Aunt Cam ... simply coming over for a family meal with Ed and my extended Las Vegas family members, when I was in town for work. One recent memory worth sharing was a few years back when I was at a work conference in Las Vegas. After the conference was over, Ed picked me up at my hotel on the strip and we drove to a favorite casino for an awesome lunch. I remember see all the people in the casinos mid-day and him saying, those people have “the fever”. After a filling lunch with conversation catching-up, we then went to the Bass Pro Shop as he offered anywhere, and I wanted to go. We walked around and window-shopped. He then took me to McCarran to fly back east. Was always fun to talk, eat and have fun with him.

Uncle Tim,
Miles apart, but close in heart! You were always there for us when we needed you! Taking care of Bernie after his heart surgery was a blessing we didn’t know we needed. And even when we tried to “get rid of you” , you were snowed in! You guided us when we were planning his funeral and that was much appreciated! Never forget you calling Aunt Cam “MOTHER” when you wanted something. Bonding with my kids the times you flew here for dad or their graduation or your own reunion, is the most precious memory I will always cherish! And because of you, we all have “the shovel”! Devouring my corned beef made me very happy that you approved and Taking you to your Jewish deli and watching you enjoy the food is another reason we know you loved food! When I was old enough, my mom gave me a cross to wear, telling me it came from my Godparents when I was born. I have you close to me everyday. You are now reunited with Aunt Cam and Barbara and Bernie! Watch over your family, near and far, and guide us through the rest of our journey! XOXO😘🙏😇

I remember as a kid whenever Uncle Ed came to visit, he was always so happy and cracking jokes. He always knew how to put a smile on my face. While in and out of the Army, I remember Uncle Ed and I constantly talking and reminiscing about our experiences and memories from service. I remember him always telling me he was so proud of me and what I accomplished. Uncle Ed was such a great person and our conversations will always remain in my mind and heart. Love ya Uncle Ed!

Hi Dad, It has been 4 week today that you left this world. I pray that there is a heaven and you are on the other side with mom and all your family and friends that passed before you. I have so many memories but I think the one I will cherish will be the last 11 years we spent together. Cooking for you and spoiling you after Mom passed, you were so happy and thankful. Every time Don or I gave you breakfast you would smile like a big kid and say "WOW" like it was something you never had before, you loved it when Don would bake you homemade bread and cookies and brought you in a big cup of coffee to go with it, or when Don made you Liver and onion, how your eyes lit up! But I think just being with you even if it was watching the News or Wrestling not saying a word and see that big Smile on your face, I knew you were happy because you were home and I was there to take care of you. I miss you so much, I still hear you call out my name and I am still up early and walk into your room to check on you. Please watch over all of us, and thank you for making me who I am today. See you on the other side someday.

From Ed's grateful nephew:
I'm an only child, raised by a father and mother both quite successful in the endeavors and careers in their lifetime(s). I wanted for nothing in my childhood as I grew up in upper middle class neighborhoods in nice homes all of which I had my own bedroom and all of the hopes and dreams little boys cook-up in their bedrooms. Nice toys, great neighborhood friends and a trusted and very much loved German Shepard companion. Got girl friend(s)(s)(s) . . . . . and graduated high school successfully and enlisted in the USAF Enlisted ranks, August 5th, 1977. Served at over nine (9) different air bases, South Korea, Honduras, Hawaii, Alaska and Minot North Dakota. (worst place on earth)
Married three (3) unsuccessful times but had a son on the second attempt, Kevin Charles. We were invited to Vegas by Uncle Ed and Aunt Cammie one summer vacation where Kevin was taken very much under Ed's wing and told him of many of his adventures and experiences while in the Air Force. He took Kevin to Nellis AFB and treated him to "S O S" (chipped beef on toast, to which he loves today even), showed him sights that utterly amazed my little boy-son of mine. One of the highlights on the third or fourth day visiting Nellis, was sneaking into the Thunderbird's hanger and taking a picture with Kevin standing just behind the Thunderbirds logo painted on the hanger floor. (no one stands on the logo ! NO ONE !!) Ed took Kevin to a couple of casinos on the strip and he saw pirates' show and lake of flames, circus shows, and the white tigers!! He petted dolphins and feed otters and got to swim in one of the nations largest pools. (at the time)
Ed also gave my son a glimpse of what honor of country, pride within one's self and duty to a cause. Now unfortunately Ed didn't play a large role in my son's life, however the short time he did give my son, proved in helping my son, in his self-worth and believing in himself along with my tutelage. I am forever grateful!

Oh My how do I pick just one memory, Mr. Ed shared a home with Cheryl and I for the final 12 years of his life, we had so many wonderful times and other times that were just "OK". I think the best one was the week we spent in Hawaii a few years ago, one could say it was on his bucket list, well we did all the touristy things along with going on every Military base on the Island ( Air Force, Marine, Navy, Coast Guard) we did they all, especially the NCO Clubs and the Exchanges. He was looking for Spam and Rice in the NCO Clubs but we never found it . On our way out of Pearl Navy Base, Ed was hungry ( imagine that) so we stopped at the base MC Donald's and their it was on the menu board SPAM AND RICE, well that made the trip complete. I am so glad I got to share that week with him. P.S. Ed never found the rich admiral's wife he was looking for. gonna miss you big guy

My fondest memory of Uncle Tim was the year we drove from New York to California on a family vacation. I was about 14 at the time (40+ years ago). It was my Mom, Dad, and three brothers making the trek cross country. One of the stops was Las Vegas of course to see Aunt Cam, Uncle Tim, and our cousins.
Uncle Tim wanted to take us for a tour of the Las Vegas strip at night to see all the lights in his convertible. With the top down, he drove us through Glitter Gulch. I was in awe of how bright the lights were. At the time, it was almost magical. There were so many lights, you could feel the heat coming off of them as we drove down the street. It is a wonderful memory I will have of Uncle Tim and that night forever.

Ed always greeted me with a smile and he would say, “Hi there, doll.”
He asked me about my students while we’d share a meal.
Very much a gentleman. I’m glad he was able to come to my wedding and share in our special day.
