Longtime Wilmington attorney receives honor from colleagues with St. Thomas More Society Award

WILMINGTON — There were no lawyers in the family when Francis J. Trzuskowski decided he wanted to become one. In fact, he recalled recently, Delaware had just a handful of attorneys of Polish descent when he earned admittance to the state bar in 1962.

Over the next five decades, Trzuskowski made a name for himself in courts all over Delaware, and this past Sunday he was recognized with the Msgr. Paul J.

Deacon Ed Lynch exudes energy and good humor. It’s an approach to life that’s evident through his 73 years of education; marriage of more than 50 years to Aline D’Iorio, and their raising of three children — Edmund, Teresa and Leslie; 49 years as a lawyer; 27 years as an ordained deacon; and his avocations as a marathon runner and third-degree black belt karate competitor.
