Charles  J.  Zaborowski
Charles J. Zaborowski, beloved father, was called to his eternal home by his Heavenly Savior on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. He was born in Erie on September 1, 1924 a son of the late Joseph and Michalini Rawa Zaborowski.

Charles served in the Unites States Marine Corps, First Division, during World War II in the Pacific Theatre. He owned Wattsburg Lumber Company from 1956 until his retirement in 2016 and the business continues through his sons.

He was a member of First Alliance Church and was a Gideon for many years. He was involved in the prison ministry and was a warrior for the Lord in which he continually shared the Word with others. His favorite thing to do was handing out tracts to anyone who had a hand.
