Paul J. Lisowski, 68, of Edinboro, formerly of Lawrenceville, left this earthly life on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at St. Vincent Hospital. He was born in Pittsburgh, PA on November 21, 1950, the son of the late Anthony and Harriet Lisowski, Sr.
He was the loving and caring father of his most treasured daughters Rachel, Stephanie “Willow”, Renata and Sarah and the adoring Dziadzia “Grandpa” of Jordan and Dylan and devoted companion of Puddin’ Pop. His children meant the world to him and they were the joy of his life.
Before retiring, Paul was a professor at Edinboro University of PA, where he taught Business and Accounting for 38 years. He was also an adviser of the Business and Accounting Club and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
He enjoyed many trips to Poland, where he made many lifelong friends and unforgettable memories. He was an avid long time golfer and treasurer for the Riverside Thursday Golf League in Cambridge Springs.
He was a vocal supporter of Presque Isle Downs Casino, making friends with patrons, employees, and jockeys alike.
Paul had a large heart and truly enjoyed all the interactions he had with the many people who touched his life.
He was preceded in death by his two brothers, Joseph “Skip” and Anthony Jr. “Antos”.
His siblings Marilyn, John “Dude”, Marya “Ria”, Rosemary, and Michael (Sally) deeply feel his loss. He also will be remembered by many cousins, loyal friends and dear nieces and nephews.
Paul was a man of myriad talents and interests. At the university, he was a much sought after educator and was Edinboro University’s Professor of the Year. He was a dedicated leader and supporter of student organizations and was involved in leadership events at the university. With monumental pride and devotion, Paul shared freely his knowledge and passion of his Polish heritage, from honoring traditions to offering others savory Polish delicacies and beverages.
