Lawrence C. Woloszynek, 72 years old of Burlington, WI (formerly Kenosha, WI) passed away Sunday, May 14, 2023, at Aurora Burlington Memorial Hospital.
Larry was born on May 7, 1951, in Kenosha, WI the son of the late Felix Woloszynek and Virginia (Neels) Lindsey.
Larry proudly worked at Pizza Hut for over 20 years throughout a partnership with the Kenosha Achievement Center. Larry competed for many years in Special Olympics receiving multiple medals for running and swimming. Most recently Larry was actively involved in the Easterseals Day Program where he was able to swim, volunteer and exercise, and they even graciously coordinated the opportunity for him to sing “God Bless America” at a 2022 Kingfish Game.
If you met Larry, he prayed for you. And when departing he’d say, “God Bless You!” Larry loved sharing bible verses with his friends and family and enjoyed singing gospel songs he composed himself. His most favorite bible verse was John 3:16. His other hobbies included drawing and anything culinary related. Larry will be remembered for his kind soul, big heart, protective spirit, and his love for Jesus.
Larry’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Crabtree Residential Living Inc. and the entire staff for showing Larry care and compassion, treating him like family and providing a sense of security and independence the last few years of his life.

In addition to his parents, Larry was preceded in death by his stepfather, Lenial “Red” Lindsey; sisters, Janice Lindsey-Mendez and Joyce Huffman; and his maternal grandmother, Dora Neels.
