GEORGE LESTER DLONIAK, age 64; loving father of Elizabeth (Rob King), Richard (wife Alison), and the late John Dloniak; devoted grandfather of John Miller and Norah and Jacqueline Dloniak; cherished son of the late Richard Joseph and Mary Ellen (nee Hanlon) Dloniak; dearest brother of Phyllis, Lois Metz (husband Bryan), and Peter Dloniak; dear uncle of Tiffany Williams (husband Chris), and her children Archer and Scarlett; dearest extended family of Bernadette Carlson and Katie Schultz; preceded in death by devoted grandparents Stella and Robert Dloniak.
George Dloniak was born on November 4, 1958 and passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on May 3, 2023. He grew up in Kirtland and attended Kirtland High School. He was a cook at Skelly’s in Willoughby and worked in steel fabrication as a welder. In his free time, George loved to watch television, enjoying everything from binging full series to cheesy horror movies. He adored music, often waking his kids up to Elvis and Beatles records late at night. An avid fisherman, George enjoyed being on the water but would become grumpy if his fishing partner caught more fish than he did. His grandkids brought him indescribable joy in life, and he always loved to spend time with them over the holidays. His loved ones describe him as goofy and selfless. He always found humor in life, even in difficult situations. He enjoyed making people laugh and would have given those in need the shirt off his back. George was always eager to help his family and friends when they were in need, and never expected anything in return. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
