Balcarczyk family,
I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. When I think of your dad I remember him always being there for everything, school events, boys association baseball, football games or just around in the neighborhood. He would always make sure everyone had a ride home especially when he had that van. He will be missed by all. Lackawanna is a lesser place without him. Rest in peace Mr. B.

Mr. “B” was one of the kindest and most wonderful people I have ever been blessed to know. He was always there to lend a helping hand, without complaint. I will forever cherish my memories of him: his warm smile and laugh, his sense of humor and his great bear hugs. The world has lost a wonderful man who will be greatly missed.
