Walter J. Luberecki, 89, of Endwell, peacefully fell asleep at Wilson Hospital on June 13th, 2022. He was born in Shamokin, Pennsylvania to a Polish household, as he would proudly tell people. He is predeceased by his parents, Alexander and Agatha Luberecki, and all his brothers and sisters: Anthony, Rita, Alexander, Edward, Joseph, Florence, Alma, Lorraine, Marian, Alphonse, and Raymond, with whom he is now reunited. He is survived by his sons, Timothy (Kelley), Christopher, and Gregory, his daughter-in-law, Valerie, and his three grandchildren: Gabriel, Ryland, and Ethan. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
He served in the Army, graduated from Bloomsberg University on the G.I. Bill, and received a Masters in Education from Cornell University. He began his vocation in education as a high school English Teacher. He eventually became Principal at Maine Endwell (ME) High School and is fondly remembered by the many students he guided during his time there. He retired from ME in 1988.
After retiring, he focused on cooking. He also loved playing Bingo and became a voracious reader in retirement; all interests he shared with his family. He was a member of Holy Family Parish in Endwell and the Endicott Elks. His family would like to thank everyone from Wilson Hospital and Vestal Park who cared for him and his home care aide, Sherry.
The family will receive friends at Allen Memorial Home 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott, Sunday from 1 to 3 pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at Church of the Holy Family, 3600 Phyllis Street, Endwell, Monday at 11 am. Burial with Full Military Honors will follow at Calvary Cemetery. Contributions in his memory may be made to the Walter Luberecki Scholarship Fund on GoFundMe.
