Zbigniew Andrew Zwierz, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2019 at age 82 with his family at his side. He was known as “Zbyszek” to those closest to him and as “Andy” to those who worked with him.

Born in Poland on August 10, 1936 to Stefan and Natalia (Jezerska), he survived the Nazi invasion and subsequent occupation. After immigrating to the United States in 1971, he worked as an electrician and later as a professional engineer. He was also a member of the Queensview Board of Directors at his co-op for many years.

On November 3, 1973, he married Krystyna (Kwiatkowska).

Zbyszek retired from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in 2009 after 25 years of service. In his spare time, he loved to sail, ski, swim, hike, travel, and read. But above all, he always put his family first.

He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years Krystyna, daughter Anna (son-in-law Michael), grandchildren Meghan and Brendan, as well as extended family and many close friends.

Visiting hours will be at the Farenga Funeral Home on Friday, March 15th from 2-4:30 and 7-9 pm. Mass of Christian Burial at The Church of St. Joseph in Bronxville, NY on Saturday, March 16th at 9:45am. Interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Yonkers.
