In Memory of Denny A Siwik

Dennis A. Siwik, 79, died Sunday, August 11, 2019, following a nine-month battle with leukemia.

Dennis  “Denny” was a life-long bachelor.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Nick and Anne Siwik, and his older brother, Richard.  He is survived by Barbara Siwik, his sister-in-law, Mark Siwik (wife Lori), Gary Siwik, Lisa Siwik and John Siwik, his nephews and niece, and his great-niece and great-nephew, Melissa and Maxwell Siwik.


Denny was born on May 14, 1940, in Akron, Ohio.  He was a proud graduate of Archbishop Hoban High School (class of 1959).  Denny retired from The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company and the Ohio National Guard. 

Denny led a full life that revolved around family, friends, and his numerous passions which included the parish community of St. Bernard, the Polish American Citizens Club of Akron, and the Cleveland Indians (long-time season ticket holder).  Denny was an accomplished bowler.  He collected jukeboxes and loved barbershop music.  He belonged to the Akron Derbytown Chorus and The Men of Independence chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  Denny also belonged to the Knights of Columbus, Council #3410.


The family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 21 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Hummel Funeral Home, 500 E. Exchange St., in Akron, where the Knights of Columbus Council #3410 will pray the Rosary at 6:30 p.m.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday at 10 a.m. at St. Bernard Catholic Church, 44 University Ave., in Akron.  Interment will follow at Northlawn Memorial Gardens, 4274 State Road in Peninsula.  In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Dennis Siwik (class of 1959) may be made to Archbishop Hoban High School, 1 Holy Cross Blvd., Akron, OH 44306.

Only 1 week to our first Road Rally

Join us for our first Road Rally or just come for dinner, but by your tickets now. Road Rally is Saturday, August 24th at 2PM. What is a Road Rally? Our Polish Road Rally will have a Mexican theme. Cars containing 2 to 3 people will head out and follow instructions, collect clue, answer some riddles, and end up at the Polish Club for a Mexican feast. This is not a race. Cars will be released one at a time. Start and stop times are recorded. You get points for answering clues correctly and coming in at the ideal time. If you race or speed and come in too soon, you are penalized. If you just want dinner, come for that too at 4:30. Either way it is $12. You must purchase your ticket ahead of time to participate in the Road Rally portion. You will be given your starting point before the Rally. I almost forgot to mention there are several parts on the Rally where you can or must get out of the car and there happens to be a restroom near by. If you are interested, purchase your ticket at the bar any evening by Thursday August 22.

Oh Yeah! No use of cell phones or electronic devices during the Rally. ONE may be on board in case of a 911 emergency or a call back to the PAC to get you back on track IF you get lost. This should be easy enough for first time Ralliers but challenging enough for others.
