Lawrence Jerome Sienkiewicz

June 8, 1953May 2, 2020

Lawrence “Larry” Jerome Sienkiewicz was born at St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI on June 8, 1953 to Corinne Louise Kaffka Sienkiewicz and Jerome Valentine Sienkiewicz, and passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 2, 2020 at his home in Houston, TX. He is preceded in death by his father, Jerry Sienkiewicz; his brother Wade Sienkiewicz; his maternal grandparents, Louise Damitz Kaffka and Bernard Kaffka; and his paternal grandparents, Stella Gorski Sienkiewicz and Stanley Sienkiewicz. He is survived by the love of his life, Aïda Sulzbach; his mother, Corinne Sienkiewicz of Seminole, FL; his brother Steven (Yoko Yamaguchi) Sienkiewicz of Okinawa, JP; his sister Lynette (Anthony) Brooks of New Berlin, WI; Gwen (Randy) Shilling also of New Berlin, WI; his brother Darrick Sienkiewicz of Seminole, FL; and his sister Lisa (Kevin) Keenan of Largo, FL, along with several beloved nephews and nieces, and their children. After graduating from Boys Technical High School in Milwaukee, he attended the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and earned a bachelor’s degree in Geology. At that point he headed to New Orleans, LA, where he began his lifelong career in Geology to drill oil wells in several states and the Gulf of Mexico. He worked for NASA, Minerals Management Service, Gulf Oil, Chevron, Unocal, DLB Oil and Gas, ExxonMobil, and completed his career with Extex Operating Services in Houston, TX. Along the way, he earned a Master’s Degree in Geology from Louisiana State University, sponsored by Chevron Oil Company. He wrote many well received industry “white papers”, and was well respected by his peers for his expertise in Geology and Geophysics. Larry enjoyed travelling around the world, was a world-class athlete in many sports, and enjoyed meeting up with his friends from around the world to run and hike in the woods with an international running club of which he was an active member.

Aida,
I'm so sorry to learn of Larry's passing. He was "one of a kind" for sure and knew how to live life to the fullest. His passion for running, beer, music, friends and travel allowed you both to have some really awesome experiences. Did you ever teach him to dance in the Cajun or Zydeco way? I'm glad you were his loving partner and companion for the last 29 years. May fond memories of Larry bring a smile to your face each and every day!
Sincerely,
Mary Revoir Jones

I so remember happy times with Larry and Aida when I lived in Houston. Noteworthy was our presence at a much reduced Saint Arnold’s gathering during Katrina. Not to forget our frequent, enjoyable visits to two rows. Larry, you were one of a kind.
