Floryan Kiwak

Died June 15, 2017



LAKE LEELANAU – Floryan Kiwak, 91, of Lake Leelanau went to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 15, 2017 in Plano, Texas.


Floryan was born Dec. 2, 1925 in Edwardsville, Pennsylvania the son of John and Mary (Zuba) Kiwak.  On Sep. 4, 1948 in Dearborn he married his loving wife of sixty years, Virginia Helen (Kojawski) Kiwak who preceded him in death on Aug. 10, 2009.


As a young man Floryan served during WWII in the U.S. Army.  During his life he enjoyed spending time outside with his flowers, swinging on his swing, fishing, and boating.  His greatest joy was retiring with Virginia to Lake Leelanau which he felt was the most beautiful place on earth.  Floryan joined the American Legion Eagletown Post 120 in Peshawbestown, and truly enjoyed being the historian for a few years and going to the schools to talk about the flag along with representing his post as a flag bearer when a fellow veteran died.  Floryan loved being with family, friends, and especially the little ones – spending the past two years playing with his great-grandson.


Floryan is survived by his daughter, Carol (John) Kibitlewski; three grandchildren; a great-granddaughter; and great-grandson.


He was preceded in by his wife, Virginia; his parents; and a son, Ronald.


Visitation will be held from 5 to 7 with the Rosary to be prayed at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 30 at the Martinson Funeral Home of Suttons Bay.  The Mass will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 1 at St. Mary’s Church of Lake Leelanau.  Father Bryan Medlin will serve as celebrant.


Memorials may be directed to St. Mary’s Church, PO Box 340, Lake Leelanau, MI 49653 and/or Mass Intentions.
