Gerald Bialowas

January 3, 1945November 12, 2019

Gerald L. Bialowas, age 74, of Norwich, passed away November 12, 2019 at William W. Backus Hospital. He was born to the late Charles and Agnes (Sikorski) Bialowas on January 3rd, 1945. He left this earth to be with his wife, Katharine (Bradley) Bialowas who passed just over a year ago. He was never truly at peace without his Squiggles by his side.

Gerald served his country in the U.S. Army then worked as a financial analyst for Pratt and Whitney for over 30 years and then went on to work at the Mohegan Sun as a dealer and scheduler in the gaming department. He always offered a big smile to all who knew him and answered to either Hoser or BB Eyes. He was an avid drag racer and a huge sports fan. He never missed a big game, watching it with his family. Many refer to Gerry as ‘the guy who makes awesome stuff out of toothpicks’ or as ‘the guy with the big garden.’ Both his crafts and his plants he shared with friends, family and the community he loved.

Gerald’s quick-wit, warmth and charisma will be missed immensely by those who survive him, his son Eric Bialowas of Norwich, son Sean Bialowas of Pawcatuck, daughter Krista Bialowas of Somerville, brother Charles Bialowas and sister-in-law Dana Bialowas of Orange CA. He will also be sorely missed by son-in-law Frank Malsbenden, Meagan and Michael Keefe and his nieces and nephews.

Family and friends may visit Labenski Funeral Home, 107 Boswell Ave., Norwich on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until the time of procession for a 12:00 p.m. graveside service at St. Joseph Cemetery, Boswell Ave., Norwich.

Gerry was such a great human being, I worked with him in table games, and I always had a good day when Gerry was a dealer in my section. He always made the customers laugh and have a good time. His smile, laugh and funny attitude was contagious. Fly high dear Gerry!! Gerry, YOU will be missed dearly.

Dear Bialowas family,
Our deepest sympathy and condolences for your loss. I had the honor of working with Gery while he was at Mohegan Sun. His smile was contagious and everyone always wanted his help as he was repeatedly eager to assist. His homemade dips and all garden vegetables were amazing, he had the touch! He always wanted to participate with all our crazy events. Even as far as dressing up for Halloween as ”Flavor Flav”. He made his own custom and nailed it! The fun and never-ending laughs are unforgettable. I know that he is with his beloved Squiggles and I pray that it gives all of you comfort in knowing that your father left remarkable and enduring footprints at the Mohegan Sun scheduling office and especially in our hearts. He will never be forgotten. Gery will be missed dearly, until we see you again my friend!

Sending you all our love, prayers, and hugs ❤ Your father was a great man, wonderful neighbor, and like a second father; he will be missed greatly. It's funny, I can't think about him without without thinking about your mom too.
They were always together ❤ I guess it's only fitting that they are now with each other, forever ❤ They both could always make my heart smile 😊 and the kids too. Katie and Jacob are going to miss their Kookamunga ❤
We love you very much,
The Welitoff Family ❤

I will miss Jerry terribly and think about him everyday. When Jerry and I worked together in the office at MS , he was my work husband. Oh the laughs and stories we could tell about the craziness we saw. He told me to watch the Office comedy and he said it reminded him of our office. I will start watching it now. Many that came to the office would want to speak with Jerry. He was so loved and admired. He was quite the jokester and made everyone laugh. He always spoke about his wife and kids and his eyes would light up. He was full of knowledge about almost everything. He gave me my Norwich history which I found fascinating . He helped out at the Norwich 250th birthday celebration and then again at it’s 300th. I would say my biggest memory of him was how much he loved his family and how proud he was of all of them . Rest In Peace Jerry with your beautiful Squiggles and I along with so many love and will miss you everyday
