William L. Dmyszewicz, 63, of Woods Hollow Road, Gloversville, left behind forever all his physical pain and the cares of this life and was welcomed into eternal joy and peace by his Lord and Savior, on Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
He left his family with a life time of wonderful memories and the joy of certainty that we will see each other again and enjoy eternity together with Our Lord.
Born in Amsterdam on January 29, 1950, a son of the late Raymond and Rosemary Ross Dmyszewicz, Bill was born and raised in Hagaman. He was a 1967 graduate of Wilbur H. Lynch High School. On November 14, 1970, he married his sweetheart, Lois Canary. Together they moved to Arkansas in 1974, where he began his career as a structural steel designer.
Returning to New York in 1984, Bill and Lois cleared the land, designed and built their dream home completely by themselves. In 1991, he started his own company, Storm Inc. and continued his drafting career. He was very proud to have been involved in the massive Albany International Airport renovations as well as many other commercial buildings throughout New York and New England, including the Pedestrian Bridge at Albany Medical Center. The quality of his work was admired and recognized by all of his colleagues in the industry. He had retired in the last year due to declining health.
Bill found his Lord and Savior in 1974 and lived his life devoted to the Lord. His devotion to his Savior and vibrant testimony was an inspiration to his family, friends and colleagues.
He spent many happy years restoring classic and antique John Deere tractors with his father-in-law and "best friend," Ken Canary. Bill was a member of the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter of the Hudson Car Club and had purchased from his dear friend, Larry Cramer, a 1939 Hudson Country Club Super Six Sedan. His Hudson hot rod was a pile of parts when it arrived. He thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of restoring and reassembling each component and piece. Bill gained a great deal of enjoyment in finally being able to go cruising around in it this past year with his sweetie, Lois. He was also active in the Coons Hollow Engine Club and it's annual show. He enjoyed the Fonda Speedway and was an avid Pete Corey, car No. 3 fan; he had built several models of his car. He especially enjoyed spending time in recent years at the family camp on Crannell Pond.
Survivors include: his beloved wife of 42 years, Lois Canary Dmyszewicz; his wonderful son, Shaun D. (Jill) Dmyszewicz of Marion, Ind.; his lovely daughter, Sarah R. (Will) Edington of Broadalbin; four amazing grandchildren, Emmah Rose and William Edington and Bryce and Shaun Michael Dmyszewicz; his sister, Karen Dmyszewicz of Amsterdam; his devoted mother and father-in-law, Phyllis and Kenneth Canary of Gloversville. Also survived by sister-in-law, Lynda Naske (Bob); sister-in-law, Laurie Frederick (Tom); and brother-in-law, Keith Canary (Kelly); several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Bill was predeceased by his parents and his younger brother, Daniel Dmyszewicz.
