Casimer Walter Burzynski

Casimer, affectionately known as Caz by his friends and family, was a fun-loving and devoted man. Despite having a heart condition for the past several years, Caz was reluctant to admit he was aging and still wanted to have fun. He was always young at heart. He played Bingo in the assisted living facility he lived in but was quick to point out how many old people there were.

Caz was a beloved big brother to his sister, Barbara, and brother, Jerry. Being 15 years older than Jerry, Caz spent much of his teenage and early adult years with his younger brother in tow, trying to keep up with Caz and his friends. Caz and one of his friends took Jerry to Sherkston when he was little. It was the first time Jerry had ever been to the beach, and he remembers that day fondly.

Caz was born and raised in the Buffalo area, and spent his entire life here, leaving only to serve his country in the Army. Caz was a proud veteran and devoted patriot.
