Harry Michael Sciezor

Harry Michael Sciezor of Grafton, found peace while surrounded by his  
loving family on September 3, 2011 at the age of 84. He was born on  
September 30, 1926, in Chicago, IL, to Michael Sciezor and Mary  
Kielbasa.

Harry married the love of his life, Jean (nee Hackett), on August 24,  
1957. He was the loving father of Jeanne (the late Wayne) Heidel,  
Patricia "Peachy" (Ted) Haischer, and Mary (Fred) Goetz.

"Gramps" was the much adored grandfather of Renee (Wally) Miller, Ted  
(Lori) Haischer, Michael (Peggy) Haischer, Jeff (Wendy) Goetz,  
Jacquie (Glenn) Weihert, Tricia (Jeff) Harte, and Katie (Craig)  
Kennison.

He was the dear brother of Florence Berseth, Eleanor Kucera and Alice  
Maul and is further survived by 17 great-grandchildren, nieces,  
nephews, other relatives and friends.

Harry was preceded in death by his beloved granddaughter, Jennifer  
Semmann.

As a young man Harry had the opportunity to play ball with the New  
York Giants. He was so fast at running the bases he earned the  
nickname "Slippery Sciezor." That career ended when he was called to  
service at the age of 18. Harry proudly served in the US Army for two  
years during World War II as a prison guard in the Philippine  
Islands. He was a member of the Rose-Harms American Legion Post 355.

Harry was a carpenter by trade. After his retirement, he worked in  
maintenance in the Grafton school system. His master carpentry  
skills, craftsmanship and work ethic were well-known and admired by  
friends and co-workers alike. Harry was a kind and gentle man who  
touched so many lives. All who knew Harry loved and respected him.  
Our dear Harry will be forever missed.
