Stanley Stevens Kwiatowski, Jr., a former volunteer firefighter with the Syosset Fire Department, died on Nov. 17 at age 76. 

Kwiatowski was born in Syosset, the son of the late Florence and Stanley S. Kwiatkowski, and graduated from Oyster Bay High School in 1956.

His father was a member and captain of the Hook and Ladder unit with SFD, according to his obituary on www.hardestyfuneralhome.com

Kwiatkowski began his career in the water well drilling industry as a driller's helper for the C.W. Lauman Company of Bethpage. He moved to Maryland in 1959 to drill wells for the City of Bowie where he met his wife of 53 years, Ann Wayson. After being drafter into the U.S. Army in 1960, he returned to Maryland and formed his own successful water well company called Atwater Drilling, according to the obituary.

Kwiatkowski enjoyed the company of his fellow well drillers and playing cards and was known for his sense of humor and off the wall jokes.

He is survived by his wife, Ann Wayson Kwiatkowski, two sons, Steven (Cathi) and Jason (Janet) of Edgewater and one daughter Brenda (Danny Haley) of Ormond Beach, FL; one sister Florence Sendrowski of Milton, DE and god-mother/aunt, Mary Gaida of Milton, DE.
