Stanley "Jack" Pezanowski-Mr. Pez- passed away on September 14th, just shy of his 90th birthday. He was born at home on Mt. Airy to George and Alexandra Pezanowski on October 28, 1927. He was a lifelong resident of Croton-on-Hudson, leaving only to serve in the Navy in Hawaii during WWII. Jack owned and operated his own roofing and siding company for over 40 years and he was highly regarded for both his skills and his generous nature, always helping those who needed a hand. He was also a proud member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 137 and worked on many building projects in the NY area.

Jack was best known and loved for his sense of humor and his harmless pranks which kept his friends and family laughing until his final days. The party up in Heaven is certainly merrier now with Jack as a guest. He read the newspaper every day and he enjoyed watching NY Giants and Ohio State football games as well as the Yankees. The most important thing in Jack's life was his family. He leaves behind the love of his life, Dodie (Dymes) Pezanowski; beloved children Elaine (Jim) Loft; Kevin (Beth) Pezanowski; Karen (Sean) Higman; and cherished grandchildren Gretchen and Hallie Loft; Abigail and Leah Pezanowski; Ryan (Claire), Matt (Samantha) and Caitie Higman, as well as his dear nephew Bob (Liz) Pezanowski and his neighbor and friend Eric Bishop, who has helped him so much over the years. He was predeceased by his parents, his twin sister Helen, sister Henrietta and his brothers Alex, George, Stephen and Joseph.

Visitation will be on Monday, September 18, 2017 from 2-4 & 7-9pm at Edward F. Carter Funeral Home, 41 Grand St. in Croton. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, September 19th at 10AM Holy Name of Mary Church also in Croton followed by private interment. In lieu of flowers please make donations in Jack's name to the Croton Historical Society, 1 Van Wyck Street. Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520
