November 27, 1956 - November 2, 2015
Edward Charles Kujawski Edward Charles Kujawski, 58, of Shelbyville, TN, was born November 27, 1956 in Gary, Indiana to Stephen and Mary Elizabeth (Heath) Kujawski. Ed moved with his wife Alesia (Merritt) Kujawski, son Kyle and daughter Kristina, from Portage, Indiana to Kentucky before coming to Shelbyville where he lived for 23 years. His death came peacefully in his sleep at home on November 2, 2015. Ed was a hard worker, having worked for a Towing company in Indiana as well as several jobs in KY before he went to work at the Empire Pencil Factory, which later became the Berol Company and then the Rubbermaid Company in Tennessee. He advanced to night supervisory position before leaving the company after some 18 plus years. He completed technical training for his job, and had certificates for course completion. A graduate of River Forest High School, in Hobart, IN, Ed loved wood working, participated in sports and played in the Jazz band in high school. He even has an album (before CD’s) the jazz band made one year with him playing the bass guitar. He enjoyed sports throughout his youth and discussed the current standings in football with his brother the day before his death. As an adult he continued to do woodworking and enjoyed painting as was evident by the painters’ easel and supplies in his living room. He loved to help others, enjoyed hunting and fishing, welding, music, watching sports on TV, and anything outdoors, to name a few. He dearly loved his children and grandchildren and was very proud of them. His constant companion, Chico, loved going for rides in the truck and taking daily walks in the yard. Ed was a very caring and giving man. If he learned someone was in need, he was there to help if at all possible and anyone that knew him, knew not to tell him they liked something he had, or they would go home with it. He was that giving. Ed was preceded in death by his parents, Steve and Mary Kujawski, wife Alesia Kujawski, sister in law Suncha Kujawski and niece Michelle Miller. He is survived by son Kyle Kujawski, N. Fort Meyers, FLA. and daughter Kristina (Eric) Bransford, Fort Meyers, FLA. Grandchildren: Jakoby Sandovol and Bailey Bransford. Brother, Michael Kujawski, Bullhead City, AZ and Steve (Kathy) Kujawski, Sparta, TN. Sister Stephenie Stogner, Orlando, FLA. Nieces and nephews: Mary Forth, Ronald Miller, Robert, Michael, JR, and Mark Kujawski, Dawn (Adam) Graham, and many great nieces and nephews, as well as many Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. Ed also leaves behind many friends, his “Tennessee Family”. Their help, support and stories have been a GREAT comfort. Ed requested he be cremated. His ashes will be placed with his parents at Calvary Cemetery in Portage, Indiana. Cremation services provided by Feldhaus Memorial Chapel, Shelbyville, TN. Memorial service will take place Dec. 12, 2015 at 1 PM, at 174 Hwy 41A North in Shelbyville, TN with Rev. Randall Harmon officiating.
