Joseph Macijowsky, 74, of Factoryville passed away Sunday, February 26, 2023, at home surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife, Rebecca Miller Macijowsky.
Born in Scranton on November 29, 1948. He is the son of the late Joseph Sr. and Irene Goleniewski Macijowsky. He graduated from Falls-Overfield in 1966 and Williamsport Community College with an associates degree in electricity. He served his country in the United States Army as a redeye guided missile specialist, serving in Korea during the Vietnam Conflict.
Joe had a love of refinishing furniture. His final project was a train door from an antique dining car that he restored in December 2022. The door was repurposed into a coat rack with a clock, and is currently hanging in the family home.
As an avid "car guy", Joe was passionate about maintaining his cars and his love for Corvettes. His dream of owning a Corvette came true in 2016.
Joe was especially proud of the Little Free Library built by his son-in-law and grandsons last summer. It gave him great joy to see the neighbors use it.
