Bernard M. Kujawa, 79, of Medina, N.Y., went to be with the Lord on Oct. 8, 2020.
He was born on May 26, 1941, to the late Frank and Mary (Wasierski) Kujawa of Medina and lived in the area all his life. He attended Medina High School and graduated in 1960. After high school he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served four years and was honorably discharged. Then he went to work at Harrisons Radiator Company in 1964 and retired in 1997.
