Since Father Balazy served as pastor of St. John the Baptist parish for nearly 40 years and was so loved by many parishioners and because seating is severely limited due to our Covid-19 precautionary measures, Father’s family has requested that only Father’s classmates attend/concelebrate the funeral Mass.
Father Balazy was predeceased by his parents, Alexander and Lillian, and by his brothers, Sigmund Klimkiewicz and Chester Klem. He is survived by his brother, Stanley (the late Pamela) Balazy and many loving nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
Please keep Father Balazy in your prayers.
