Vaughn Lendzion Obituary

Mr. Vaughn J. Lendzion, 77, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 17, 2023, leaving behind many broken hearts.

On Saturday, December 2nd. at 10:00AM, family and friends are invited to gather on the parking area of the Kowalski Funeral Home to form the traditional procession to Rosedale Cemetery in Linden where the prayers of the committal will be offered for Vaughn at 10:45AM prior to his burial in the family plot.

Vaughn, the son of the late Mary Savitsky Lendzion and the late Joseph Lendzion was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey.  He resided in Linden from 1952 until 1999 when Vaughn decided to relocate in 2000 to Winfield Park.

Vaughn had an extensive career from 1969 to 1999 as a quality control inspector for American Flange Manufacturing Company in Linden.  After that, Vaughn continued to work in the maintenance department for the County of Union.  He was based in the Union County Court House in Elizabeth for ten years before taking his well-deserved retirement in 2000.

Vaughn proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War from 1966 to 1968.

In recent years, he spent a lot of time with his special buddy, Eddie, his dog who was forever by Vaughn’s side.

Vaughn was predeceased by his wife, Margaret “Midge” Sass Hutton in 2022 and his sister-in-law, Sara Lendzion.

Vaughn is survived by his brother, Retired Lieutenant Colonel U.S. Air Force, Dennis G. Lendzion; his two stepchildren, Tracey Dibelardino and her husband, Gary, and James Hutton; his three step-grandchildren, Nicole Dibelardino, Anthony Dibelardino and Briana Hutton; his two sisters-in-law, Ellen Newhard and Liz Sass, both of whom acted as Vaughn’s guardian angels looking out for him after Midge died and of course, Vaughn’s neighbors and friends.

Vaughn was a true gentleman, a kind soul who was always respectful and he had a kind word for everyone.  He was definitely “one in a million”!  Vaughn will be forever missed by all those who loved him, but he will always remain in our hearts.  Rest in peace Vaughn.  You are now back together with your beloved Midge.
