Obituary of Ronald P Nowak

Nowak, Ronald P. on August 24, 2019 of Hamburg, NY.  Beloved husband of Shirley (nee Jung); loving father of Jason; dear fur-dad of Angel and Gizmo. Arrangements by Lakeside Memorial Funeral Home Inc., 4199 Lake Shore Road, Hamburg, NY, 716-627-2919. Online Condolences at

Ronald was a loyal and patriotic man that served his country proudly.  He was enlisted in the United States Armed Forces. He served in the Army during the cold war and re-enlisted in the Air Force.  After Ronald returned to civilian life, he joined his local VFW Post of 527.  He never missed a parade with his post and the Erie County Fair parade detail was his favorite.  Even one of his hobbies was military related!  He collected memorabilia including Air Force model planes, patches and coins. His love of country is what earned him the nickname of “Sarge”.

When he was younger, he enjoyed helping out at his son Jason’s football games and Cub Scout events as well.  Ronald loved his job as a school bus mechanic.  He put in thirty years until retirement from the Frontier School District.  On Ronald’s days off, you could find him fishing or helping Shirley with landscaping around the house.  He was quite talented in building flower bed edging with wood.
