Walter J. Paskowsky, a resident of Hatfield, PA and formerly of the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, died peacefully at his home of Friday, May 25, 2018. He was 71.
Walt was the son of the late John and Sarah Ostash Paskowsky. Born and raised in Philadelphia, he was a 1965 graduate of Cardinal Dougherty High School.
Walt was a drawbridge and bridge administration specialist for the United States Coast Guard. Stationed in Florida, he was responsible for developing rules for the maintenance, inspection and administration for drawbridges and bridges in the Seventh Coast Guard District; this included the St. Lucie River in Stuart, FL; the Florida Intracoastal Waterway; the Okeechobee Waterway; the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in South Carolina; and the St. SImon's Island waterways in Georgia.
Walter was the family historian. He saved and chronicled thousands of family photos, recently converting those to current media formats. He left us this great gift.
He traveled throughout the lower 48 states, visiting all of them during his lifetime. He enjoyed his memories of growing up in Philadelphia, and kept in touch with his friends from school at Incarnation of Our Lord.
Walt is survived by his sisters Joanne Carr and Carol Talaga, niece Jennifer Walker, nephew Peter Mann, and many dear cousins.
Walter's burial services will be private at the convenience of the family.
