Kazimir was a family man who was always happiest when his family was around. He would light up when any relative was near; he was so glad to be able to spend time with those he loved. Kazimir spent many evenings into the morning crowded around the kitchen or dining room table playing pinochle (his favorite). He brought much joy and love to all of this children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and of course his 11 brothers and sisters. The things he will be most remembered for is his "loving heart" and his smile that could light up any room.
