Kowalczyk, Daniel

Daniel Joseph Kowalczyk passed away on October 11, 2017.

Dan was born on April 4, 1944 in Detroit, Michigan to Ernie and Jeannie (Lewandowski) Kowalczyk. He attended Murray State University, and received his Bachelors and Masters in Communications degrees from Wayne State University.

Dan is survived by three daughters, Julianne (Keith) McClain of Murray, Nicole Kowalczyk of Paducah, and Janis Kowalczyk of New Orleans, LA; a sister, Carole Hutchins of Coronado, CA; six grandchildren; one great-grand child; and his beloved nieces and nephew. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Marilyn Kowalczyk and Mary Lou McGraw; one brother, Christopher Kowalczyk; and his ex-wife, Susie Brazzell.

Dan’s passions were cars, storytelling and traveling. He learned all about cars from his father during his childhood. He became an expert at restoring cars, with some of his favorites being a Bentley, a rare Jaguar, and three ‘65 and ‘66 Mustangs. Dan spent several years traveling the World. He will be fondly remembered as an expert storyteller, delighting his kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews with his ghost stories and funny tales.

Per his wishes, no services will be held, a family memorial will be held at a later date.
