Siwecki earned 4 medals and returned with Mary his first wife from Poland to his hometown in Ohio.

Upon Rose’ death, he married Eleanor combining their love of Polish dance and music. He sat on the board of the Polish American Society. He was a lifelong member of the American Legion.
Bob leaves behind a daughter, Mary Easterly (Richard), a son, Stephen Kurylowicz (Maryanne), and three grandchildren, Sandra, Bridgett, and Erin and their spouses.
