Altamont - David S. Kaczkowski, 71, of Altamont, died on Monday, October 25, 2021 at Albany Medical Center Hospital following a tragic accident.

David was born in Susquehanna, PA, the son of the late Barney and Helen Domblewski Kaczkowski.

Following his graduation from UMass Lowell with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, David worked for 10 years at General Electric, installing gas turbines around the world.  In early 1980 he opened Kacz’s Auto Salvage in Schenectady. He later moved the business to Colonie and was most recently located in Amsterdam.

David was devoted to his family and was a loyal friend to many. He loved to make people laugh and always had a joke to tell.

In addition to his parents, David was also predeceased by his brother, Tony Kaczkowski.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 37 years, Sylvia (Page) Kaczkowski; his daughter, Alyssa Kaczkowski and granddaughter, Reagan, who was “Opa’s Heart”; his brother, Bernie (MaryBeth) Kaczkowski and sister, Barbara (Paul) Benson; his mother-in-law, Mikki Page; brother-in-law, Eric Page and sister-in-law, Lisa Kaczkowski, as well as numerous, much loved nieces and nephews.

A very special thanks to our many friends for helping David’s family deal with this tragedy.

A memorial service celebrating David’s life will be held at Sacandaga Lake because that’s where David’s heart was.
