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.
