The World War II Army veteran was a longtime communicant of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, Baltimore and Ware avenues, Towson, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today.

He is survived by his wife, the former Lorraine Cook, whom he married in 1948; a son, John C. Wasowicz of Mays Chapel; a daughter, Elizabeth Mettee of Sparks; a sister, Marie Rostek of Baltimore; and a grandson.
