July 13, 2017
Joseph C. Zaborowski, 82, of Lancaster, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 13, 2017, at home, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Staten Island, NY, to the late Joseph and Helen (Demboski) Zaborowski, Joe was the husband of Barbara R. (Uhr) Zaborowski, with whom he celebrated 61 years of marriage.
Joe served in the US Army during the Korean conflict and was honorably discharged in 1955. Joe worked as an arborist in New York City and is a big reason Central Park is as beautiful as it is today. Joe was of the Catholic Faith, enjoyed playing golf, perfectly putting with one hand in his pocket, and also enjoyed 30 years of spending time at his lake house in the Catskill Mountains with his family. Joe especially enjoyed the last few years with his golf and lunch buddies, Frank and Larry.
In addition to his wife, Barbara, Joe is survived by three children: Steven Zaborowski, husband of Deborah, of Holmdel, NJ; Diane Carber, wife of Michael, of Hopewell Junction, NY; and Regina Kay, wife of James, of Lancaster; three grandchildren: Barbara and Joanna Carber, and Zachary Zaborowski; and a sister, Vera Fredericks, wife of Robert, of Archbald, PA. Joe was preceded in death by a son, Joseph C. Zaborowski in 2013.
Memorial services for Joe will be private and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Joe’s memory can be made to the American Cancer Society, 314 Good Dr, Lancaster, PA 17603 or to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, 2000 Linglestown Rd #201, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
