steven klisiewiczA Graveside service with military honors will be held 2 pm Friday August 30, at Woodlawn Cemetery in Andover.Steven A. Klisiewicz, age 62, of East Andover passed away unexpectedly on Thursday August 22, 2013 at CMMC.

  

He was born in Cherry Point, North Carolina on April 18, 1951 a son of Edward R and Fredda F (Grantham) Klisiewicz.

He served in the US Army.

  

My father Steven A. Klisiewicz was and forever will be a gentle soul with a big heart. The love and adoration he had for my brother and I was reserved but deeply meaningful and understood. You will forever remain in our lives, thoughts and hearts for all eternity. You will always be the father of two wonderful boys and we will forever cherish our times together. Our love for you will never falter, will never fade and you shall always remain in our hearts and our minds. You will be greatly missed by many, and in time we shall be reunited on the other side. Rest in Peace Dad. Keep the shiny side up and the rusty side down, forever your son Nathan Daniel Klisiewicz.

  

 

I learned my most valuable trait from my father. He taught me respect for nature and for my fellow man and most importantly for myself. Though we may not meet again in this world, his wisdom will carry me through until we meet again in the next. Love you Dad, Forever, Matthew.

  

 

There are three of us now, as you walk on ahead…Never quite near as we’d like, but never too far…No…instead…As we follow you, you will follow us and we will guide each other to a place where we shall meet again…A place where our souls and lonely hearts will mend. We shall comfort each other as we pray your peace. Your life had ascended…that is your release. Flow gently, dear Steven, on this river of life…As we embrace your spirit that will guide us to your light. Gently, gently our rivers shall meet…Where our souls will heal and the spirit shall speak. We will journey together; as it is you we seek. We shall start at the beginning and begin with the end…Our love for you… to bring you home again. Forever… Love Matthew, Nathan and Laurie.

 

Surviving are his companion, Ramona White of Andover, two sons, Nathan D. Klisiewicz of Sedona, AZ and Matthew E. Klisiewicz; brother, Jan E. Klisiewicz of Green Valley, AZ, a nephew, Jeffery Klisiewicz; and several cousins. He was predeceased by his parents.

You made the best home made Chowda, salty ol' Seadog. We shared early best times with animals, nature and Maine. Love Blossomed. Valentine's Night 1984, 1st cherished son was created, our second cherished son near my birthday day in 1985. Blessed are we to this day and forever. Our beautiful red heads carry in them many of your traits, characterizes, kindness and gorgeous physical qualities. Good Job, Booja! A humorist. You went hunting one day, rifle over your shoulder Callie at your side, you returned to our Monson home proud and grinning ear to ear-you caught and inflated Mylar balloon! Once you drank what you thought was Very Fine Apple Juice-Sorry, Nate had to relive himself. How the 4 of us laughed! The best long drawn-out joke teller with best accents ever! Gentle, peaceful, lover of family, friend, life, nature-may your return to Mother Earth and your travels beyond be guided with peace and love. Love forever Laurie! ;)

Booja..Time travel never easy. You must of said "Beam me up Scotty" - wish granted. Always wanting to be abducted by aliens, guess what? Just heard some researchers claiming "we are aliens "! Safe Journey Sky Pilot! Your dearest friends, Diamond Fiber and our shared character brought us together. Our paths crossed at Lucky's I brought you a beer, we talked for hours and that night in 1982 our relationship began. Our song was "Roxanne" by The Police- go figure. Our music got better tho, you introduced me to great classic rock. You played guitar like a master and pasted on your talent to your son. You held Matt on your shoulders high above the crowd at his first Tom Petty concert-A Star was Born! You helped me grow up with your knowledge, tenderness, never-ending reverence and as always lots of humor. Keggers and Brimsield State Forest, drives in your Chevy SS, escaping the "Ghetto" but never losing those dearest friends to this day. King of St.Stans punch-board...D elmonico!

Now what am I going to tell Duck that you have done? Another " Rube Goldberg endeavor" (your father's favorite term) comes to a premature end..
God speed K-Bubba...

Steve was a close friend of my own father growing up in Monson. I became close to him & his two sons as they were neighbors to us both in Palmer & Monson. It was so fun as a kid to hear "Kielbasa's" stories of the military, skiing or Arkansas. Steve saved my life once; he jumped over a campfire to give my the heimlich maneuver as I choked. He had a great laugh, and he will be missed.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences going out to Ramona and Steve's family. I always enjoyed visiting with him when he came into the library or meeting him at the store. He was a good soul. I will miss him.

My mother, Aunt Bobbie, wanted me to let you all know that she is praying for your family. She loved Steven and has a heavy heart of hearing his loss. I remember visiting them in Arkansas and Steven had mowed a Peace Sign on the hill of the place right in front! It is sad that we lived so far apart that we never got to bond as cousins, but I did feel like I knew him well as Aunt Fredda and Uncle Eddie always talked highly of their boys and grandsons! May God's arms wrap around you at this time and give you comfort and peace. WIth love from your Texas family!

So sad to hear of the passing of our friend Steve - the one we affectionately called by the nick-name "kielbasa". We grew up with him in Monson MA, and have lots of fond memories to reflect upon. We went through school, rode around in cars, played rock guitar, and learned about life together. He was a gentle guy and a valued friend with a great sense of humor. To his family - please know that the thoughts and prayers of many of his old Monson area friends are with you at this time. -John and Barbara Kinder
