|Let the memory of Kenny be with us forever|
Son of Richard & Irene (Bonczynski) Woitalewicz.
Married to Melissa McCurdy on 6-30-1990 at Wood River, NE.
From the Grand Island, NE. "Independent" Newspaper:
The second Wood River volunteer firefighter injured in Saturday's blaze has died from his injuries, and the fire has been ruled an accident by the state fire marshal.
Capt. Kenny Woitalewicz, 38, died around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at St. Francis Medical Center. He is survived by his wife, Melissa, and two young sons.
Wood River Fire Chief Roger Derr formally announced the news of Woitalewicz's passing during a 4:30 p.m. press conference at the Wood River Fire Hall. The fire hall shares space with the Wood River city offices on Main Street, both of which bore solemn signs that the community was in a collective state of grief.
A black wreath and draped black fabric have adorned the exterior of the brick building since Monday. The anything-but-festive decorations are a reminder, though one is not needed, of Saturday's events.
