Shay had no family members to claim his remains.Thanks to the Veterans Department in Rocky Hill they were able to set up arrangement to have this service. 

Many "Thanks" to the Patriot Guard for also attending.

On 10/1/2018 Nevinna was recognized by the mayor and town of South Windsor for her work in the Pencils & Toy Drive for Puerto Rico, where she collected and delivered truck loads of toys and over 30,000 pencils and crayons to schools in some of the hardest hit areas on the island following the hurricane.

Tom Denicki:

"On Sunday April 8th I had the pleasure of honoring Captain Bill Krawski’s 55th anniversary of walking away safely from the crash of his F-100A Fighter jet at Bradley Field. I was joined by American Legion Post Commander Art Sladyk, members of Post 133, friends and family. Bill, a member of the Connecticut Air National Guard 103rd Fighter Group of the 118th Fighter Squadron flying out of Bradley Field, was on an Air Defense Command intercept mission on the night of April 8th 1963. His aircraft failed to gain altitude at takeoff. He displayed quick thinking and keen piloting skill in bringing his fighter to a halt past the end of the runway. He blew his canopy and jumped out of the jet as it burst into flames, walking away with a bruise on his forehead and a scratch on his cheek. We join together in thanking him for his service in defense of our country."
