James A. Kwasek was born in Chicago to Ruth (nee Miller) Kwasek and Alexander Kwasek.  After graduating from Loyola Dental School and becoming a dentist, he entered the Air Force, and served at Bentwaters Airforce Base near Woodbridge in England.

Jim loved golfing and spending time with his friends and family. He and Mary Ann enjoyed travel to Hawaii, Costa Rica, Panama, Australia, New Zealand and Minocqua, WI as well as yearly trips to Long Boat Key, Fl.

He will be deeply missed.
