Igon PUCHALSKI Passed away on 26 May, 2007 in Federal Way, WA. Composer-pianist-arranger, Igon was born in Warsaw, Poland, 5 May, 1935. After escaping Poland during World War II, he attended boarding school in England where he became an accomplished pianist-musician. At the age of 18 he immigrated to the U.S. reuniting with his family in New York. He served in the Air Force where he became a member of the USAF Academy Band. Several of his compositions were performed by the USAF Academy Band. His studies took him through a Masters Degree at the Juilliard School of Music. Igon was a professional musician his entire life who felt very fortunate to have worked closely with people such as Frank Sinatra, Ben Vereen, Sammy Davis, Jr., Nina Simone and many other wonderful talents. He composed ballets and symphonies, but his true love was the piano. He mostly enjoyed playing piano for others. He is best known for his arrangements and his incredible ability to accompany singers who always felt Igon helped them feel more at ease with their singing abilities. His gentle, caring nature, witty dry humor, dedication to music, and his love for his children is how he will be best remembered. He is survived by his sons and their wives, his daughter, and his grandsons. A Military Memorial Service will take place 8 June, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. at the Tahoma National Cemetery, 18600 Southeast 240th Street, Kent, WA 98042.
