Gene S. Bialecki, 78, of Sewell, New Jersey, passed away on Thursday, June 18, 2020, surrounded by his loving children.
A fun loving, outgoing fellow, Gene lived life to the fullest. He was devoted to his late wife Joanne of 56 years and loyal to his family. There was nothing more important than spending time with them. Gene was the life of the party and enjoyed being the party prankster. He was a gentle giant and a straight shooter; if he had something to say to you, Gene would let you know. Gene enjoyed playing pool and pinochle, bowling and watching Philadelphia sports, especially the Phillies.
Born in Kolkhagen, Germany, Gene came to the United States in 1951 and was a resident of Sewell since 1978. Prior to retirement, Gene worked for Mars Graphics, Edinburg Press, and then became a self-employed printer. After retirement, Gene was a park ranger for a time and also a bus driver for the seniors in Washington Township.
Devoted husband of the late Joanne M. (nee Walz); loving father of David Bialecki, Janine Bialecki DiCarlo, Christopher (Kim) and Michael (Bridget) Bialecki; devoted PopPop of Alexis DiCarlo, Nathaniel, Mia and Blake Bialecki; dear brother of Sister Leonora, Bernie Bialecki, Wiesia Wootten and the late Mary Walsh. Gene is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
