Concertina Master Joe Czerniak Passes

On behalf of the Czerniak family, I would like to announce the passing of my grandfather, Joseph Czerniak. He has gone to a better place to be with his son/my dad, Bill, and daughter, Joanne, and her husband Mike….as well as many other special relatives. My dad’s brother, Greg, his wife Julie, and my dad’s sister, Annette, her husband, Bob, have all been at his beside. Mom and Daniel were able to visit last week as well. As details are finalized, I will be posting per the family’s wishes.bill-jill-joe-czerniak

I ask that you pray for my Gram, Martha, during this difficult time. The attached picture was taken on my 16th birthday…..it was the first one I found in a stack and I think it’s a fitting picture with my dad and gramps. If any of you remember the Duluth Polka Dots, I guess this picture is even more fitting! Hoping my grandfather is now able to rest in peace. I am thankful that because of the gift of Polka Music, I have such a huge family of friends……I credit both sets of grandparents for that and will forever be grateful. God Bless!
