Stanley Walter Kawa entered eternal life Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012. He was born Jan. 30, 1920, in Brier Hill, Pa., the son of the late George and Caroline (Ziemba) Kawa. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Mary (Kawa) Mallak; and brother, John Kawa. He graduated from McKeesport High School with perfect attendance and got a degree in mechanical engineering from Princeton in 1947 after serving in the Navy Seabees and officer training from 1940 to 1943. One of his personal accomplishments was that he designed a one-man submarine for the Navy. Stanley prided himself on being a drafter for the bulk of his career for Westinghouse and then Mesta Machine from which he retired in 1987. He was a member of Corpus Christi Parish in McKeesport (formerly St. Mary Czestochowa Church) and loved growing vegetables and fruit on his White Oak family farm. Stanley enjoyed traveling and actually crossed the Artic Circle during one of his vacations in 1969. He was an avid photographer and shared many a slide show with his family.
