My dad Lee was a WWII Veteran having served in the US Navy as an aircraft mechanic aboard a Five Star ship; the Carrier USS Bataan where he saw heavy action in the Pacific Asiatic theatre. He received an Honorable discharge at the end of the war.- Lee never forgot his experiences during his service to our country during WWII, nor did he forget the friends he lost in battle. He remained a fervent patriot all his life. A Military service was performed at his funeral.
Lee was born to Klemens & Frances (Paranka Wakula) Stempowicz at 93 Frank Street in New Haven, Ct. He was predeceased by his only sibling, a sister named Mary who died at birth.
Married to Doris Lillian Jacquelin, he left behind a daughter and 2 grandchildren; granddaughter Jaime and grandson Jared.
He resided in Hamden, Connecticut for many years until his retirement from US Repeating Arms in New Haven,Connecticut, then moved to South Carolina with my mother.
His death was due to lung cancer.

I miss him every single day, and always will.

"He who is remembered in heart, lives on"
