A Mass of Christian Burial for Deacon Edward Lawrence Mazuchowski at 11 a.m. on June 28 at St. Joseph’s MazuchowskiChurch in Dannemora. A Mass of Christian Burial was also celebrated on May 17 at St. Jude’s Church in Ocala, Florida.

Deacon Lawrence, age 73, died the evening of May 10, 2019, saying goodbye to his earthly family to abide for eternity in his heavenly home. He and his wife Louise were living in Ocala, Florida at the time of his passing.
Born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania on March 12, 1946 to Edmund and Margaret Mazuchowski, he grew up there with his two sisters, Lois and Denise. After attending one year at Penn State, Deacon Lawrence enlisted into the U.S. Air Force in July of 1964, where he served in Vietnam until his honorable discharge in April of 1968.

At age 20, on July 30, 1966, he married his soulmate and love of his life, his wife Louise. Together they raised two wonderful children in Cadyville, New York.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughter, Michele, and her husband, Gavin; his son, Edward II, and his wife, Carol; and five grandsons TJ, Sean, Pierce, Alexandre and Zachary, who were the joys of his life and they loved him immensely.

Deacon Lawrence began his civilian life working for Proctor & Gamble in Pennsylvania. Four years later, he and his family moved back to Louise’s hometown in Upstate New York. He became the Water and Sewer Superintendent for the Town of Plattsburgh until his time of retirement in 2001. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, spiritual reading, watching Jeopardy, doing puzzles, playing scrabble and walking in nature.

As a devout Eastern Rite Byzantine Catholic, he lead a life of faith and touched all those around him with his unconditional love, compassion, and joy for life. His smile and laughter would light up the room. On October 12, 1996 Ed followed his calling and was ordained a Deacon. He loved people and welcomed everyone with an open heart. He was a wonderful minister to those in need.

Deacon Lawrence was also active in the community as a Diocesan Family Life Director, Marriage Encounter Coordinator and 4th Degree Knights of Columbus.

Deacon Lawrence’s life will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he met.

Condolences may be sent to 11597 SW 69th Circle Ocala, FL 34476.
