Phil Kowalczyk fondly remembered

Our Chief Engineer and friend, Phil Kowalczyk, passed away unexpectedly late Tuesday afternoon.

Phil started at WJET right after graduation from Erie County Technical School in 1987.  He started in the control room and worked his way up the ranks, becoming Chief Engineer in 2012.

A brilliant computer mind, Phil was the go-to guy when machines stopped working around here.

He is survived by his wife, Kelly, a daughter, two sons, grandchildren, and a niece.

Phil Kowalczyk was 48 years old.
