Raymond Sawicki Obituary

Raymond J. Sawicki passed away peacefully on March 20, 2024, at his home in Kearny, NJ at the ripe age of 93. 

 Ray was born in Jersey City in 1930 and stayed in the state his entire life, except for his time in the military.  He served 3 years in the Army from 1951 until 1954 as a chauffer, and received a Good Conduct Medal and a Nat Def Svs Medal for his service overseas during the Korean War.

Upon his return, he attended Cooper Union where he met many of his lifelong friends including Mikio and Setsu Kawakami, Ted Hurwitz as well as Alex Karpilov. 

Mr. Sawicki was a Graphic Artist for Ecofa, Inc. in Long Island City, NY for thirty years before retiring in 1994

He was always up for an adventure, or a spirited discussion: he had a curious mind and loved to learn. He was a very accomplished painter, and dabbled in photography, mosaic work, and a variety of other mediums.  Perhaps most importantly, he had a twinkle in his eye and a razor-sharp sense of humor: he will be sorely missed by friends and neighbors.  Rest in peace “Pan” Sawicki!
