George Joseph Fiedorczyk, 84, of Kitty Hawk, died September 25, 2019, at home surrounded by family.

Born in Clifton, NJ on June 3, 1935, he was the son of the late Mary and Stanley Fiedorczyk. He grew up in Clifton, NJ before marrying the love of his life Diane and buying a home in Newton, NJ, where they lived for over 30 years.

George Fideorczyk worked for New Jersey Bell for 40 years. He was always proud that he was able to retire at 54. George and Diane’s love of the ocean and warm weather led them to retire to Kitty, Hawk, NC in 1992 and live their “Impossible Dream.”
