Brian Mackowiak, 68
SACO - Brian Mackowiak, of Saco, passed away the morning of Friday, June 2, 2017, at 68.
Monty, as many affec-tionally knew him, was the oldest of three children born to Edmund Mackowiak and Irene Skrok Mackowiak, on April 27, 1949. He grew up in Easthampton, Mass., attending Sacred Heart School and Easthampton High School.
At 17, he left home to serve through four campaigns in the Vietnam War. Brian was very proud to have served his country and wore his veteran status literally, on his sleeve.
He raised three daughters, Christina Dubin, Brittany Mackowiak and Ella Evans, with his former wife, Barbara Mackowiak. His last employment took him inside submarines as a skilled worker at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. An avid hunter and fisherman, Brian seemed most content in the beautiful woods and waterways of Maine.
Brian is survived by his sisters, Nora Bernier and Louise O'Leary; his daughters; and his grandchildren, Tyler White, Sophia White, Elias Dubin, Hattie Dubin and Henry LeFebvre. He will be missed by many other family members and friends as well.
Brian's family is grateful for the treatment and respect given during the last months of his life by doctors and staff at New England Cancer Specialists in Scarborough, and by his Beacon Hospice nurse.
A graveside service with military honors for Brian will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 17, 2017, at Saint Stanislaus Cemetery, Mayher Street, Easthampton, Mass., located off Holyoke St. Rt 141. The Graham Funeral Home is entrusted with providing local arrangements.
