My godfather Bob Lazarowski played the accordion. Bob was the son of Elva Ference and Joseph Lazarowski, Elva being the sister of my grandfather. Unfortunately, I don’t have any memory of meeting Bob. He was born September 2, 1937 and died in June of 1991.

The name of Bob’s dog was Thor.


Bob performed at least once at an amateur night concert. I don’t know the date of this clipping.


Here is a later photo of Bob, taken in 1956.

  1. I remember the accordion well. My next door neighbor’s daughter wanted to learn piano. Her parents didn’t want to spend the money in case she got bored, so they bought an accordion. She practiced constantly, they got a piano, she learned that and other instruments and became a music teacher!!
