    Newspaper Article - Thursday October 28, 1943 Oswego Palladium Times - Oswego, New York - Pulaski - Marion LaVeck is home from Camp Croft, South Carolina on furlough. He is in the infantry and attached to a heavy machine gun company.

    Newspaper Article - December 18, 1944 Oswego Palladium Times - Oswego, New York - Pvt. Marion LaVeck, Missing Two Months in Italy, Now Safe - Pulaski - Mrs. Marion LaVeck, Salina Street, and her four small sons received the best kind of a Christmas gift Saturday night when a letter from the Army adjutant general's office announced that Pvt. Marion LaVeck, reported missing in action, has returned to duty. The letter carried no details other than he was safe and well. Pvt. LaVeck was reported missing October 1 in Italy, and the letter stated he was back on duty December 6 apparently having been unaccounted for for more than two months. He entered Army service in June, 1943, and went overseas in November of that year. His outfit went into the front lines in February 1944, and he saw almost constant combat duty up to the time he was reported missing. He was an ammunition carrier at the time his last letter was received before he was reported missing.

    Newspaper Obituary - December 1947 (name of newspaper unknown) - Carpenter Killed When He Fell In Belfry of Church - Marion E. LaVeck, 37, of Pulaski, Loses Life While Repairing St. Stephen's Edifice: Ropes Rigged By Firemen to Lower Body to Choir Loft - Marion E. LaVeck, 37, of 60 Salina Street, Pulaski, a veteran of World War II, was almost instantly killed shortly after 8 o'clock Thursday morning when with other workmen he had climbed to the belfry of St. Stephen's Catholic church, Erie Street, prepatory to making repairs to the interior of the steeple. LaVeck lost his balance while standing on a beam and falling backwards, suffered a broken neck. LaVeck, a carpenter was employed by Angelo Castaldo building contractor of 124 Erie Street, who had been engaged by Rev. Charles Komierczyk, pastor of St. Stephen's church to make repairs to the belfry and other church property. Rex H. Runion of 58 Salina Street, Pulaski, also an employee of Castaldo was on the job with the contractor and his Pulaski neighbor. Deciding to begin the steeple job this morning, Castaldo, LaVeck and Runion, carrying some equipment, made their way up to the choir loft above the main entrance to the church. From this point they climbed an iron ladder, fastened to the side of the building a distance of about 30 feet, to a trap door which admitted them to the belfry. After the three men had reached the landing in which the door is located, they began to arrange two extension cords which they had brought along to aid them in the work. LaVeck who was standing on a 6x8 inch stringer by the side of the open passage-way, in some manner lost his balance and fell backward across the opening with his head and neck striking a section of the casing of the passage-way, which protruded upward. Castaldo, noticing that LaVeck was beginning to slump downward in the opening, grabbed his leg while Runion, only a few feet away, grabbed hold of LaVeck's shoulder. The two men lifted the injured workman to a secure position. Castaldo hurried down the ladder and out of the church. He ran to the church rectory across the street and summoned help. A physician was called, and the ambulance and Hook & Ladder truck of the fire department summoned. Unconscious, LaVeck was placed in an aluminum stretcher, a special piece of lifesaving apparatus which is carried on the fire truck. With the use of ropes, the stretcher holding the injured man was lowered from the belfry to the choir loft and then carried down to the church entrance. When this point was reached the physician, after an examination, pronounced the man dead. At the same time last rites were administered by Father Kazmierczyk who quickly reached the scene. Police Chief James A. Donovan, who went to the scene with Sgt. William F. O'Toole in a police prowl car, notified Assistant District Attorney Don H. Stacy of the accident. After Chief Donovan related the facts to Stacy, the latter released the body to the Dain funeral home. Later, acting on instructions from the District Attorney's office, Dr. Harvey S. Albertson, as coroner;s physician, conducted an autopsy. In a report to the District Attorney, Dr. Albertson said the Pulaski man suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck which caused a pinching of the main nerve system, producing death. Subsequently, a verdict of accidental death was issued by the District Attorney's office. Meantime, LaVeck's wife and relatives were advised of the tragedy and Mrs. LaVeck, with Rev. James M. Pawley, pastor of the Pulaski Methodist Church, made a quick motor trip to the city. Later in the morning, Franklin J. Taylor, Pulaski funeral director, was called and after the autopsy had been completed took charge of the body, removing it to his funeral home in that village. Mr. LaVeck, who had been employed by the Oswego concern only a short time, was a member of Syracuse Local 12, International Union of Carpenters and joiners. Born in Altmar on January 26, 1911, Mr. LaVeck was the son of Mrs. Nydia Barnes LaVeck and the late William LaVeck. He attended Altmar village school and was a graduate of Pulaski Academy. During World War II he served in the United States Infantry in the North African, Sicilian and Italian theatres. At one time while overseas, he was reported missing in action. He was discharged from service in January, 1946. He was a member of Robert Edwards Post 258, American Legion of Pulaski and Pulaski Methodist Church. Besides his wife, who is the former Miss Rhea Wilder of Pulaski and his mother, he is survived by four sons, David, 11; James, 10; Riley, 9 and Stephen, 4; also by a brother Allan LaVeck of Syracuse.

S. will host an honorary tea at the Masonic Temple, South Fourth Street, with all the Chapters in Oswego District, Sunday afternoon, from 2 to 5 p.m. for Mr. and Mrs. Tracy Wilder of Pulaski. For more than a quarter of a century Lois and Tracy Wilder have dedicated their lives to the order. For years they campaigned throughout the State for added facilities and greater improvements for the Eastern Star Home and Infirmary at Oriskany. Their efforts supported the new addition to the Home, which has grown from a one-building unit to a two million dollar complex that gives the resident sisters everything the heart could desire in material comforts. All of this has been realized by the sole support of Eastern Star members. The Wilders have long ago track of the miles they have traveled to help make this dream come true. Their daughter, Mrs. Rhea LaVeck, absorbed this zeal for the order, and became Oswego District's first Grand Matron of the Grand Chapter of the State of New York. Mr. and Mrs. Wilder did not curtail their interest after having a Grand Matron in their family. With their daughter, Mrs. LaVeck, they again traveled the width and breadth of the state campaigning to keep the Order of Eastern Star of the State of New York an independent jurisdiction, and did not rest until the Grand Chapter Session of 1970-71 voted to keep their independent jurisdiction. Through these years Lois and Tracy Wilder have earned the title of Mr. and Mrs. O.E.S. Mrs. Wilder served her own Pulaski Chapter No. 159 as Matron and has served the Grand Chapter as District Deputy Grand Matron of Oswego District, and also as Chairman of the Necrology Committee. Mr. Wilder served as Patron of Pulaski Chapter No. 159 and has served the Grand Chapter as Grand Sentinel. An invitation is extended from the chapters of Oswego District to the many friends of the Wilders to attend this tea in their honor. Mrs. John Grant of the Fulton chapter is chairman of this event and will be assisted by representatives of the other chapters of the district.
