John J.'s Story
John J. Sasyn, 79 of Niagara Falls, NY, passed away on October 13, 2017, at his residence, while under the care of Niagara Hospice. Born in Antoniowka Nowa, Poland, he was the son of the late Walenty and Katarzyna (Paszt) Sasyn.
John immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 11, and settled in Weirton, WV. He began a 21 year career in the United States Air Force in 1956 and served until his honorable discharge in 1977. Early in his career, John was stationed in Niagara Falls, NY, where he met and married Llewelyn F. (Davis-Maracle) on June 13, 1964 at Our Lady of Lebanon Church in Niagara Falls. Following his retirement from the Air Force, John went on to work at Harrison Radiator/Delphi Corporation in Lockport, NY until retiring in 2003.
