David L. Kaczor, 83, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan. 25, 2024,
at his home in Lake Havasu City. He was born in Detroit on Jan 17, 1941,
to John and Julia (Glowacki) Kaczor.

He lived most of his life in Michigan, where he attended Utica High
School and Macomb Community College for two years. He served in the US
Navy from 1958-1965 aboard the USS Hyman. He married Joyce Ann Paul of
Utica, Michigan on Nov 21, 1963, and they had four children. David
worked for the Speedring Company before working for Ford Motor Company
Tractor Division in Romeo, Michigan. After Joyce's job transferred her
to Arizona, David retired and moved to Lake Havasu City in 1986. After
divorcing, David resided a few years in Oregon and California before
moving back to Michigan for a short time where he met Darlene Meade of
Mt. Clemens, Michigan. He returned to Lake Havasu City with his "sweetie
pie", as he affectionately called Darlene, in 1997.

David was an accomplished stained glass artist, and his beautiful work
can be found in homes and businesses in every state he lived in. He was
involved with Lions Clubs and Boy Scouts of America for a number of
years. David was always the life of any party and enjoyed spending time
by Lake Havasu, playing cribbage, watching golf and football and
occasional outings to try his luck at casinos.

David is survived by his son, Stephen (Luz) Kaczor, daughter Tarianne
(Jeffrey) Mitchell, brother Alan (Patricia) Kaczor, sister Marcia
Godawa, 6 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, numerous nieces, nephews
and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joyce Kaczor,
