LOWELL Edward ‘Edziu’ Milczarek, 73, of Lowell, passed away Sunday, August 22, 2021, at his home with his loving wife and daughters at his side. He was the beloved husband to Anna C. (Szafran) Milczarek with whom he shared Forty years of Marriage.
A son of the late Stanislaw Milczarek and the late Bronislawa (Kamac) Milczarek, he was born March 28, 1948, in Warsaw, Poland and grew up and was educated in that area, playing soccer in his younger days. In 1975, he came to the United States, settling in the South Boston Polish Community. Since 1984, he made his home in Lowell where he raised his family, and was a communicant of Holy Trinity Polish Church where he often volunteered to help out at the Church.
He was a meat cutter in South Boston and then worked in assembly in the Greated Lowell area until his retirement. Edziu enjoyed time spent with family and friends, and especially enjoyed watching soccer. He also loved the Boston Celtics and the New England Patriots, and was a fan of the U.S. Open Tennis Tournaments. More recently, he attended programs at the Community Family Adult Day Health and Alzheimer’s Center in Lowell.
In addition to his loving wife, Anna, he is survived by his children, Mary Milczarek of Lowell, Christina Lopez and her husband, Jose, of Lowell; his brothers, Stanislaw Milczarek, Zygmunt Milczarek, and Tadek Milczarek all of Poland; his sisters, Jadwiga of Poland, and Irena Oliver of Seattle, WA; his brother in law, Walter Szafran and his wife, Diana, of Nashua, NH; his sister in law, Kathleen Malave of Las Vegas, NV; and many nieces and nephews in the United States and Poland.
