Paul J. Dacko
It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, Paul Dacko. He departed this world on Saturday, December 9, 2023 surrounded by his loving family, leaving behind a legacy of love, strength, and wisdom.
Born on April 11, 1942, Paul was a beacon of kindness and a source of unwavering support for his three sons, Brian (Gina) Eskra, Ronald Eskra, and David (Betty) Eskra. He was a dedicated family man who devoted his life to providing guidance, love, and encouragement to his children. His devotion to his family was evident in every aspect of his life, and his presence will forever be deeply missed.
In addition to his devotion to family, Paul had a passion for birds and butterfly photography. His love for capturing the beauty of our feathered friends took him on countless adventures into nature, armed with his camera and a keen eye for detail. His skillful photography not only showcased the vibrant colors and intricate patterns of birds but also reflected his deep appreciation for the natural world through his lens.

Paul found solace in patiently waiting for the perfect moment to capture a bird in its natural habitat. His photographs tell stories of patience, dedication, and a profound connection with the world around him. Whether it was the graceful flight of a heron or the delicate song of a warbler, Paul had a unique ability to freeze these fleeting moments in time, creating lasting memories for all who had the privilege of viewing his work.

Preceded in death by his wife, Joan Dacko, Paul is now reunited with his life companion. Together, they created a legacy of love and family values that will continue to resonate through the generations.

In his memory, Paul leaves behind a family that will forever be grateful for the love, laughter, and lessons he shared. He is also survived by his adoring grandchildren, Jill (Adam) Eskra, D.J. (Tristin) Eskra, Veronica (Lawrence) Bright, Steffane Eskra and Elizabeth Eskra; great-grandchildren, Amelia Eskra, Lucas and Ethan Bright, Adaline and Zachary Ramsay-Eskra; dearest brother of Harry (Joan) Dacko, Pat (Donna) Dacko; dearest sister of Judy Barczak. His love for them was immeasurable, and he cherished the time spent with each one, imparting wisdom and creating cherished memories.

May his spirit soar alongside the birds and butterflies he adored, leaving behind a legacy of love, family, and moments frozen in time. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered by his sons, family, and friends. We love you Paul/Dad!
