Donald S. Wasilewski, 78 Professional Engineer Lakeland- Donald S. Wasilewski, P.E., 78, of Lakeland, Florida, passed away Monday, January 2, 2017, at Good Shepherd Hospice. Don was born April 10, 1938, in LaSalle, Illinois, the oldest son of Stanley and Irene Wasilewski. Don attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, and obtained his mechanical engineering degree in 1961.

Don worked as a mechanical engineer on job sites all over the world, including Wellman-Lord Engineering, settling permanently back in Lakeland, Florida in 1975, retiring in 2007 from Mustang Engineering, Tampa, FL. Don was an avid Radio Control airplane operator, a member of the Knights of Columbus for over 50 years, and a loyal church volunteer, but Don""s most favorite thing in life was spending time with his family. He rarely missed a ball game, graduation ceremony, piano recital, or any event that involved his children or grandchildren. He was a gentle soul, loved by all, and he will be sorely missed.
