August 23, 1923 — July 14, 2016

Tedor Pliszka, 92, of Binghamton, NY, passed away on Thursday, July 14, 2016, at Absolut Care of Endicott.

Tedor was born in Poland on August 23, 1923 and came to the United States shortly after Germany was defeated in WWII.  He was a communicant of St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Kirkwood and retired from GAF/Ozalid, Johnson City, after 35 years of service.  He was a proud member of the American Civic Association and an avid photographer.  He loved spending time outdoors, whether in his garden, hunting, or fishing, but most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his daughter, Catherine (TJ Donnelly) Painter of Pine Valley.  He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Jessica Painter of Horseheads and Douglas (Kiba Wilson) Painter of Pine Valley; his great-grandchildren, Cadence, Madison, Payton, and Liam; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, Anna Pliszka, on March 27, 2015.
