Newtown, Pennsylvania


Michael Edward Kukowski, 76, of Newtown, passed away June 11, 2019 at St. Mary's Medical Center. He was born March 22, 1943, in Passaic New Jersey to parents Matthew and Irene (Mackowicz) Kukowski and lived in Wallington and Little Ferry, NJ until moving to Newtown in 1979.

Michael graduated from Wallington High School, Class of 1960. Following graduation, he attended Allegheny college on a football scholarship where an injury in his junior year ended his football dreams. Instead, Micheal made a career in sales and distribution of chemicals used in the printing ink industry until his retirement in 2014.

In his free time, he enjoyed watching football, was a huge NY Giants fan, bowling, gardening, boating, coaching softball, camping with the Boy Scouts, reading science fiction books, and drinking Cappuccino with a good cigar. Micheal was happiest with either his hands in the soil or his feet in the sand while singing along to the music of the 1950's.

In addition to his parents, Michael was predeceased by his eldest son. Steven Michael. Surviving is his wife of 40 years, Jacklyn (BIllups) Kukowski, son Scott Kukowski of Newtown; daughter Kara and her husband Jeremy Tucker of Mifflinburg, PA; three grandsons, Landon, Liam, and Lincoln Tucker also of Mifflinburg.

A service of remembrance and celebration of his life will be held Saturday June 29th at The Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, 1700 Makefield Road, Yardley, PA. 19067.
