Alumni Eternal: Kazi Kaczerski

It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Kazimierz Kaczerski on Sunday, February 18, 2018.  Kazi, as we all knew him by, passed away peacefully with his two daughters and son-in-law by his side at his home; succumbing to cancer that was recently diagnosed. 

He was unique, a 'one in a million' type of person and one of my best friends.  I had the privilege of being his best man way back in 1988, we stayed in touch often over the years and saw each other as we could when schedules permitted.  Kazi was most proud of his two daughters and loved them very much.  He traveled to Poland last September to visit his birthplace and surprisingly he vacationed in Costa Rica and even took up the game of golf!

We all have stories about Kaz and I suggest those alumni post them here and on the funeral home website.  Here is one of many; his green Ford Granada with bucket seats and white landau vinyl top.  What a car for college! 

Services will be held at the Cocklin Funeral Home in Dillsburg PA. Here is Kazi's obituary;

Kazimierz “Kaz” Kaczerski, 61, of Dillsburg, PA passed away Sunday, February 18, 2018, peacefully, in the comfort of his home with his family by his side. Kaz was born in Poland on February 5th, 1957. He was the son of the late Tadeusz and Alexandra Kaczerski. 

Kaz was a hardworking and beloved father who enjoyed gardening, traveling and spending time with his two daughters.  Kaz is survived by his two daughters, Joanna Kaczerski, Alexandra Jacobs and her husband Luke Jacobs. Kaz is also survived by his five siblings Stefan Duda and wife Irena, Stanley Kaczerski and wife Toni, Elizabeth Zigray and husband Eugene, Richard Kaczerski and wife Halina, and Barbara Rapczynski and husband Joseph and many nieces and nephews.
