Obituary of W. H. Kwilecki
"The Bainbridge Post Search Light"


W. H. Kwilecki dies; services in Moultrie

Graveside services were held last Sunday afternoon at four in Pinecrest Cemetery, Moultrie for William H. Kwilecki, 81, who passed away early Saturday morning at his Moultrie home after a lengthy illness.

The deceased who was born and reared in Bainbridge, and the son of a pioneer family of this county, was a retired hardware merchant and architect, and had moved to Moultrie 42 years ago to make his home.

Mr. Kwilecki, son of the late I. Kwilecki and Bertha B. Kwilecki, was born here on December 12, 1893, and was the youngest son in the firm of I. Kwilecki Sons, the oldest firm in continuous business in Decatur County, having been established here in 1869.

He was a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology in architecture and he came back to his home town to begin his profession. Some of the local buildings which were designed by him are T emple Beth El, the old Bainbridge High School, a number of the brick consolidated high schools in the county and many residences.

I. Kwilecki Sons established a hardware store in Moultrie in 1929 and Mr. Kwilecki went there in 1932 to manage the business. He continued to operate it until ill health forced him to close it out several years ago.

The deceased was a member of Temple Beth El here, and while a resident of Bainbridge, he was active in civic and community development, just as he was after he moved to Moultrie.

His many friends of the older set in our city remember his wit and humor and as a member of the old "Cooters' Owls" orchestra, he provided many hours of entertainment and happiness for the residents of this entire area.

Surviving are his widow, the former Miss Louise Reid, also a native of Bainbridge; one daughter, Mrs. Bertha Louise Ausband, Atlanta; a sister, Mrs. Alfred Kohnke, Quincy, Fla., and two grandchildren, Reid Ausband and Matthew Ausband both of Atlanta.

Funeral services were conducted by the Revenend John Bledsoe. Dec. 22, 1974.
