Joseph S. Wojcik III

Died: 3/11/2010

Mr. Joseph Stanley Wojcik III, age 42, of New Castle, DE, passed away suddenly on March 11, 2010, while doing what he loved, vacationing in Paris, France. Joe was born in Kansas City, MO, on September 3, 1967. He proudly served his country for 4 years in the US Air Force and, in civilian life, worked as an air traffic controller at the Philadelphia International Airport for the past 12 years. An intelligent, fun-loving, gentle, and passionate man of diverse interests and hobbies, Joe spent his life in the pursuit of knowledge, fulfilling relationships with family and friends, and good living. He was a fantastic cook, and a wonderful host who greatly enjoyed entertaining in his home. He looked forward to evenings at the theater and at concerts, but valued the simpler pleasures of sitting by the fireplace and playing with his pet dog and best friend, Dixie, and his pet cat, Zoey. A world traveler and an enthusiast of American history and politics, he also enjoyed out-of-town pub crawls, trips to Atlantic City, beach vacations, NASCAR races at Dover Downs, country music, and all types of sports. He was very proud of his Polish heritage and delighted in playing traditional polka music. People mattered most to Joe, who was known variously as Dad, Uncle Jo-Jo, Jo-Jo, Joey, Wojo, Delaware, and Teddy Bear. He had a strong, lifetime bond with his former Homestead Air Force Base colleagues and with the elite fraternity of air traffic controllers with whom he worked. He was devoted to his beloved family and took so much pride in his nephews Matty and Danny, but most of all, his precious daughter, Amanda. He is survived by his daughter, Amanda Eleanora Wojcik; parents, Joseph S. Wojcik, Jr. and Barbara A. Bernoski Wojcik; siblings, Lyn Wood and her husband, Chuck, Theresa A. Wojcik, and Curt M. Wojcik; nieces, Kelly Wood and Kailyn Wood; nephews, Matthew R. Woodall, Jr. and Daniel F. Woodall; extended family members; and many close and devoted friends. Visitation will be held from 5 pm to 7 pm on Wednesday, March 24, 2010, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE 19720. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11:30 am on Thursday, March 25, 2010, at Our Lady of Fatima R.C. Church, 801 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle. Interment will follow in Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Amanda Eleanora Wojcik Education Fund, c/o Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home at the address above.
