March 18, 1932 – June 2, 2021

Francis Joseph Pawlowski, Jr. aged 89 of Oak Brook, IL and Naples, FL, passed away unexpectedly June 2, 2021 in Florida. Mr. Pawlowski grew up in Chicago, Il, the son of Francis Joseph, Sr. and Helen (nee Nyka).

Mr. Pawlowski graduated from Chicago Institute of Technology. Following graduation, he worked briefly for a military engineering power firm.

In 1957 he married Mary Lou Jackson in Chicago. After their nuptials, Mr. Pawlowski launched his own family engineering business for 400-cycle ground support for military aircraft. A true love of his life. The work and employees meant everything to him.

He is survived by his loving wife, Mary Lou; Children, Gayle (Ronnie), Glenn (Arlene) and Grandchildren, Janae, Kevin, Ronald Zachary (Stephanie) and Kayla and Hunter and great-grandson, Samuel.

Frank led an extraordinary life in the pursuit of balancing work and responsibility, family and friends, and adventure.

It is hard to say which he loved most: skiing in Aspen, trekking the pyramids, or golfing with his buddies in Grey Oaks.

I knew Frank, working through DCMA as an ACO.
My condolences to the family, by his sudden passing. He certainly was a man of vision large as life. I spent many hours talking business and swapping stories. Thank you for supporting the mission, RIP Frank your legacy lives on…..

Frank was a winner in every respect. He was also one of the last of his kind.
What he did with his business speaks for itself. He did what no one today could (or would) be willing or capable of doing.
He had the knowledge and wisdom to make things happen at every level and made sure that it did happen.
He also had a heart of gold and treated everyone with a level of regard and respect beyond anyone I have ever known for someone in his type of position.
He will be greatly missed by all who cared for him.
