Andrew Szymkowski Obituary

Andrew N. Szymkowski, 85, of Waukesha passed away on Friday, December 1, 2023 at Waukesha Hospital. 

Andrew was born on November 22, 1938 in La Grange, Wisconsin the son of Henry and Mary (Schroeder) Szymkowski. He grew up in the Eagle area and graduated from Catholic Memorial High School. After high school, Andrew faithfully served his country in the United States Marine Corps. Andrew worked as a Machinist for Dresser Industries for the majority of his working career. He was the type of person that needed to be busy and occupied and so he worked full time until the age of 70. Even during retirement, Andrew was busy and on the move. He had many interests during his life. In his younger years he was an avid outdoorsman and loved to hunt and fish. He also enjoyed treasure hunting with his metal detector, panning for gold with his friends in Arizona, traveling, and the occasional trip to the casino. Above all else, Andrew loved being around people, especially his family. He was blessed with six children, Tim, Amy, Karen, Sara, Jenny, and Beth and he loved them dearly. Andrew was a good man and he will be missed but forever remembered by those he leaves behind. 

He is survived by: his children, Tim Szymkowski of Eagle, Amy (Jeff) Schmidt of Marvin, NC, Karen Szymkowski of Waukesha, Sara Szymkowski of Eagle, Jenny (John) Szymkowski of Palmyra, and Beth (Tim) Nowaczyk of Elkhorn; his grandchildren, Samantha (Nathan), Steven, Lindsay, Natalie, James, Jessica, Melissa, Jacob, Andrew, Karlee, Jaden, and Chloe; his great grandchildren, Olivia, Emily, Colton, Madison, Lilah, and Adelaine; his sisters, Barbara and Mary Pat; and a brother in law, Dick Rohloff. He is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, his first wife, June, his dear grandson, Joseph, and his siblings, Rita, Bob, Henry, Agnes, David “Sam”, Jean and Jerome.
