David Bielawski

David Bielawski, age 90 of Franklin, TN, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, February 5, 2024, surrounded by his loving family.

 

David was born in Chicago, IL on March 25, 1933, son of the late Barney & Lottie Bielawski.

 

He went to school at Chicago Vocational.  He married Julie Ann Jorgensen on May 5, 1973 in Los Angeles, California.  He served in the Navy and Air Force for over 20 years and received many prestigious medals during his service.  He worked in the telecommunications industry for a number of companies for over 30 years.   After retiring from the military and his chosen field he began doing acting, commercials, playing golf, traveling, worked at Vanderbilt as a standardized patient and at Franklin Bridge as a starter.

He was always a veteran at heart and attended meetings of the Middle TN Veterans Support Group, providing support, humor, love and contributions.
