Homeless veteran with no family given ‘proper’ burial

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A 69-year-old U.S. Army veteran was laid to rest Wednesday.

John Pawlowski died earlier this month. With no next of kin, a proper burial was not a certainty.

Klaehn, Fahl and Melton Funeral Home thought differently. The Winchester Road funeral home offered a funeral service for Pawlowski – the honor he deserved, it said.

The public was invited to attend the funeral to pay their respects.

Pawlowski was buried at Lindenwood Cemetery.
