Memorial Day Memories

pastby Diane Norek Harrison

SOUTH AMBOY-This is from my own research. The cemetery for Sacred Heart Parish in South Amboy is located on Johnsons Lane in the Parlin section of Sayreville. The Sacred Heart Catholic War Veterans Post 578 erected large monuments with the names of the men who died from the parish. The one stone reads: “IN MEMORY OF ALL WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES WHILE SERVING THEIR COUNTRY IN THE TIME OF WAR.” The monuments were dedicated Nov. 11, 2001.

The men were: World War I 1914-1918-Ignatius (Patsy) Olejniciak, Charles Walczar, Frank Lewandowski, Peter Pero, Frank Wieciorkowski, Walter Cichowski, Otto Kushnetski, John Render and Frank Toczak.

WORLD WAR II 1941-1945-Louis Ciecko, Felix Delikat, Francis Fabiszewski, Stanislaus Fisher, Eugen Gatz, Joseph Gorczyca, Howard Inman, Walter Jaje, Vincent Jaskowiak, Stanislaus Kielkowski, John Kravchenok, Francis Kuligowski, Michael Mazur, Joseph Mioducki, Maximilian Nebus, Joseph Pisinski, Joseph Prusakowski, Chester Pupek, Edmund Pupek, Harold Render , Andrew Seaman, Charles Skowronski, Walter Springle, Joseph Strzelec, Francis Strzelec and Peter Stegiel.
