John S. Bienkowski, 69, of South Windsor passed away peacefully on Friday March 31, 2017, at the home of his daughter in South Boston, Ma. He was predeceased by his loving wife of nearly 50 years Kathryn (Poulos) Bienkowski of South Windsor. Born in Hartford CT to Stanley (Bingo) Bienkowski and Blanche (Belcher) Bienkowski, he was a lifelong resident of South Windsor before spending his final few years with his cherished daughter Janet N. Bienkowski of South Boston, Ma. He graduated from Cheney Technical High School in 1965. He was an Iron Worker before spending nearly 40 years in construction as an Operating Engineer. He was a proud, longstanding member of the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 478. John is survived by his two brothers, Paul and his wife Kathy Bienkowski of South Windsor, Raymond and his wife Jan Bienkowski of Manchester, and his sister Diane Myers of Somers. He leaves his beloved brother-in law Peter and his wife Nisa Poulos of Martha's Vineyard, sister-in law Janet Enes of Tolland and brother- in- law Stephen G. Poulos of South Windsor. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and lifelong friends. Known as "Johnnie B" to most, he will be remembered for the devotion and care he provided his wife during her battles with illness, as well as his exceptional pride and love of his daughter. His larger than life smile and laugh were infectious to those around him. John's family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for the love, care and compassion of Rita Murphy-Gentry, Erin O'Brien, Jeanne Jankowski, Janice Laubenstein and Angela Montrond, his longstanding caregivers.
