Our Family will always remember Mr Cichonski as a wonderful man who welcomed us to the neighborhood 24 years ago. He was a gentle soul. Our children will never forget the times when he took them bike riding and when he would visit us down the Cape when we were camping. He even opened his home to us and said to go ahead and use his back deck anytime. He always was so excited to show us his new cars. Such a wonderful man who will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Heaven has truly gained an Angel.
RIP

He was such a great supporter of GHS sports. He was there at many events regardless of whether his boys where involved or not. He will be missed on the sidelines. I was always welcomed with a smile and a handshake every time I saw him. Thank you for your friendship. We are so sorry for your loss Peter and Gregg

Cousin Henry was a guy who was always living his life to the fullest. Swimming, waterskiing at the camps, ice fishing in NH, NYG vs the NE Pats football games, looking at cars, going to holiday family and friend parties. He enjoyed cooking and eating polish foods. He especially liked his mothers homemade blueberry pies. Our sympathies to Peter, Gregg and your families and to Kathleen. May Henry rest in peace. Paul and Emily Slomski
