Chester John Wisniewski joined our Lord in Heaven and his relatives on May 2, 1984. He was the most loving grandfather, spending countless hours playing with his grandchildren. He would hold the chords on a guitar while one of them strummed, spent hours with his grandkids putting together complex puzzles, took them often to the park and the library, listened while they played the piano and the organ, did mock interviews on the tape recorder, and played game after game after game after game with them. He also was a brilliant man who religiously took 5 thick books out of the library every single week, and read them in their entirety. He fixed all of the broken toys and taught himself to play the guitar. He also was an inventor and invented car parts before they even came to market, and loved to tinker in the basement. When it came to food, he wasn’t afraid to indulge in chocolate covered ants and grasshoppers as well as other interesting things. In addition, he married Lucille Golembiewski Wisniewski, the love of his life, on February 22, 1935 and was happily married for 48 years! He also was a loving father to Rita Castaldo and Edmund Wisniewski, and a loving grandfather to Kristen Jankowski and Laurie Orlovsky, who lived with him in Bayonne, NJ before he passed, as well as Sheryl Wilkins, Kim Kruegel, and Jon. He worked as a car inspector on the Pennsylvania Railroad in Kearney, NJ his entire life. He also loved polka music and was proud of his Polish heritage. He was the most loving father figure in the family and everyone was devastated when he passed. He was born in Poland on July 2, 1910 and immigrated with his parents at about 2 years of age to Rutland, VT, where is father worked with marble. They moved to Bayonne, NJ where he resided the rest of his life. He also was religious and attended Mount Carmel Church weekly.
