Obituary of Wesley Burczak
Wesley “Whip” Burczak passed suddenly at home in DeLancey, NY on September 24, 2018.
He was born August 31, 1932, in Glen Cove, NY, the first child of the late Wesley and Julia (Ignatowski) Burczak.
Wesley moved to a dairy farm on Stoddard Hollow, Delhi, in 1949, and then to DeLancey 20 years later. For 24 years he worked at Del-Met in Walton, retiring when rheumatoid arthritis made it impossible to continue.
Mr. Burczak served as boy scout leader, Sunday school teacher, and elder of the DeLancey Presbyterian Church. He liked to hunt and fish, crossword puzzles, chess, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy. He was a devoted and beloved father, grandfather, and husband.
