He is now in heaven and able to walk, run, talk, hear, and do all the things he could not do on this earth due to Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorder. He now has no more suffering or pain.

Anthony Pawlak

Jan 11, 1930 - Jan 31, 2024

location-icon

Jackson, MI

Anthony Pawlak was welcomed to Paradise on January 31, 2024, he was 94 years old. His family’s beloved patriarch, Anthony was known by many names: Tony to friends and colleagues, Dad to his 3 children, Grandpa and Papa to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and Puv to his wife of 69 years.Tony was born on January 11, 1930, in the Boston suburb of Chelsea, MA. He was the only child of Anthony J and Jessie L (Chighisola) Pawlak. During his youth, Tony always dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player as he loved the game. He was a big fan of the Boston Bees and the Boston Red Sox. Tony graduated from Chelsea High School in 1947 at 17 years old, enrolling and attending Boston University immediately thereafter. He received his teaching degree in elementary education in 1951. He enrolled in the United States Marine Corps (USMC) and served from 1952 to 1954 at Camp Lejeune, NC. He was one of the best clerk-typists in the USMC but was always too humble to admit it. He continued his service in the U.S. Marine Reserves until 1964. He married Theresa “Terry” Daloia on May 1, 1954 in Chelsea, MA. Tony was recruited by Jackson’s Union School District (now JPS) as they were looking for a male teacher to provide a “male presence” at Main School in Jackson as almost all elementary school teachers were women in 1954. So he and Terry moved to Jackson in 1954 with 2 suitcases and not much else. During his early teaching career, Tony attended MSU and received his Masters of Education. His teaching career involved many moves within JPS: he taught at Main, Firth, Trumbull, Blackman, Bennett and Hunt Schools. Throughout his entire elementary teaching career, Tony could always be seen wearing a suit and tie to school. He thought this was important for his young students to see. It was always his sincerest goal to help children learn. He retired from JPS in 1985, after having taught thousands of students in Jackson for over 31 years.After moving to MI he became a fan of the Detroit Tigers, the Detroit Lions, and MSU football and basketball. He was a very good dancer and could be seen hitting the dance floor at the Moose Lodge and the German-American Club with Terry for decades. He also loved music and had a big collection of vinyl records…the opera “Carmen” was a favorite as well as Strauss waltzes and Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops. Tony and his family enjoyed annual summer trips to visit family in MA. He meticulously planned family camping trips throughout the western U.S, the provinces of Canada, and northern MI over the years, teaching his kids how to read a map and providing impromptu history lessons. These trips are cherished memories for his family. To say that Tony was an avid reader would be an understatement as he always had a book on hand. He frequented the Jackson Public Library for over 65 years. He especially liked a good mystery and anything history related. He could find the humor in a lot of situations and once he started laughing, it was infectious. A literal meat and potatoes man, he also had a big sweet tooth and never turned down dessert. Tony was a dog lover…he loved his pet dogs in his youth (all named Skippy), his family dog (Shag) and his grand dogs in his later years. Despite living in Jackson for 70 years, he never completely lost his Bostonian accent.Tony and Terry were snowbirds for 25 years, “wintering” and enjoying the sunshine in Bradenton, FL. Tony was always active, walking, swimming or gardening. They took over a dozen cruises together, hosting two family cruises. One very special cruise to the Bahamas celebrated their 50th anniversary.Tony will be lovingly remembered by his family: His wife of almost 70 years, Theresa Pawlak. His daughter Marie (Skip) Weese and their son Evan (Megan) Weese. His son, Kenneth (Janet) Pawlak and their two daughters Leslie (Matt) Puckett and their children Emma and Mason, and Hillary (Bryan Smith) Pawlak. His daughter Linda (Michael) Danielski and their two sons Jack (Keani Willebrand) Danielski and Benjamin Danielski, and daughter Cambria Danielski.A funeral Mass will take place on Friday, April 5, 2024 at St. Joseph Oratory, 707 North Waterloo St, Jackson. Visitation will be from 10:30 a.m. until the beginning of the Mass at 11:30 a.m. A luncheon will immediately follow the Mass at St. John the Evangelist Parish Center, 711 Martin Luther King Jr Dr, Jackson. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Parish, Jackson Interfaith Shelter, or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The family extends a heartfelt thank you to the wonderful, caring staff at Henry Ford Hospice Home.

Eston Dawson-Baglien

Jackson, MI

was born on August 3, 1993, in Lansing, MI, to his loving parents, Julie Baglien and Gary Dawson. He was a remarkable soul, whose light shone brightly and touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him. Tragically, Eston's life was cut short on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, in an automobile accident in Jackson, MI. He was only 30 years old. Eston was a gentle and compassionate man, with a heart full of kindness and love. From a young age, he showed a deep interest in the world around him, which led him to pursue his education in geography at MSU. Eston was a proud graduate of Springport High School and held an associate's degree from Jackson College. His thirst for knowledge and curiosity about different cultures and places were evident in his studies. While in school, Eston played football, ran cross country, and played euphonium in the marching band, serving as drum major his senior year. He was a big part of the Quiz Bowl/Quiz Busters team as well as a performer in his high school musicals. Throughout his life, Eston was known for his strong work ethic and dedication to his community. He served as a sexton at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, where his warm smile and helpful nature made the church a welcoming and safe place. Eston also worked as a night custodian at Springport Public Schools while in college, where he took pride in maintaining a clean and safe environment for students and staff. Beyond his professional achievements, Eston had a deep passion for music, being extremely talented at playing guitar, piano, and singing. He had an eclectic taste in music, finding solace and inspiration in various genres and especially loving the Beatles, Rush, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, and Avenged Sevenfold. Eston played lead guitar in a band for a few years with his brother Erik and best friends and he was a talented composer. Eston could often be found immersing himself in thought-provoking films or television. He loved playing hockey, most recently for the Trash Pandas in Chelsea. He was devoted to the Green Bay Packers and was part owner of the team. His enthusiasm for these hobbies was infectious, and he would often share his recommendations and insights with anyone willing to listen. He also enjoyed his family’s cabin in the Upper Peninsula. He loved the solitude of uncrowded lakes and streams. He especially enjoyed fishing for pike and musky and jump-shooting for waterfowl. Perhaps his favorite pastime was working up a good sweat in the family sauna and then plunging into the icy pool in the Indian River cleared of logs by him and his Springport buddies. Eston's memory will forever be cherished by those he leaves behind. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his beloved Alina Kilian, the woman he intended to spend his life with, who shared his dreams and aspirations. Eston's brothers, Evan, Ethan, and Erik Dawson-Baglien, had a special bond that only brothers can share. He was also deeply loved by his sisters-in-law, Rachael Dawson-Baglien, and Grace Dawson, as well as his nephew, Walter; his niece, Lilith; and best buddies Tommy Murphy, Keith Nebelung, and Nathan Saed. Numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins also played a big role in his life. Eston's family was his anchor, and the love they shared was a testament to the beautiful person he was. A service to celebrate Eston's life will be held on Saturday, February 24 at 11:00 a.m. St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 309 S. Jackson St., Jackson, Michigan. A luncheon and visitation will follow in the church fellowship hall. Additional visitation time will be from 5:00 – 7:30 on Friday evening, February 23. Friends, family, and all those whose lives Eston touched are invited to join in bidding him farewell and finding solace in each other's company. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made in Eston's memory to the Springport Area Foundation for Education, Springport Band or Sports Boosters, or the charity of one’s choice. These organizations were close to his heart, and he believed in their missions to uplift and empower others. Eston Dawson-Baglien, your time with us may have been far too short, but the impact you made on the world will endure for eternity. Your light brightened the lives of everyone you knew. May your soul find eternal peace, and may your light continue to shine brightly in our hearts. You will be deeply missed and forever loved.
