Stanley A. Nedwick, 82

Stanley A. Nedwick, 82, of Fenwick Island, Del., passed away on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 2019, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes, Del. He was born in Wilmington, Del., son of the late Steve and Alfreda (Struzynska) Nedwick.

He was a graduate of Salesianum High School and proudly served in the U.S. Air Force from 1957 to 1960. Upon returning to Wilmington, he met the love of his life, Jeannie, sharing 55 years of marriage and two blessed children, Stephanie and Daniel.

His love of cars and a mechanical mind lead him to open up Nedwick Motors on Maryland Avenue. He retired to Fenwick Island in 2000, where he took his passion for keeping people on the road to keeping people going on the water, ’til the end.

He enjoyed reading World War II aviation stories, NASCAR and Friday-night crabs with family and friends at Dinardo’s, Leo’s and, most importantly, at home with the gang. During the summer, Saturdays and Sundays were for boat rides, some clamming and a few beers off Assateague Island. He was also a member of the community, upon whom people could rely for a kind helping hand or a good tip.

Nedwick is survived by his wife, Regina A. “Jeannie” (Kline) Nedwick; a daughter, Stephanie M. Brown and her husband, Jeffery, of Gig Harbor, Wash.; a son, Daniel A. Nedwick of Fenwick Island; a brother, Robert Nedwick and his wife, Bette, of Wilmington; and two sisters, Diana Pennington and her husband, Robert, of Singer Island, Fla., and Eileen Couturier and her husband, Ronald, of Hightstown, N.J.

Nedwick would have thanked the staff of Beebe Healthcare and Tunnell Center for all the frequent-flyer miles he was getting under their care. His family could always feel the love and kindness, and they say, “Thank you.”

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon, with visitation starting at 11 a.m., on Friday, Dec. 6, 2019, at St. Luke Catholic Church, 9903 Coastal Highway (or 100th Street), Ocean City, Md.
