METRO KONDRATICK

Metro Kondratick, 91, of Rockville, MD passed away Friday, November 29, 2019. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Joan and daughters: Christine (Todd) Washington of Iowa City, IA and Stephanie (Daniel) Reese of Ashburn, VA; adoring grandchildren Kathleen and Larissa and many wonderful nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Pauline Kondratick and siblings, John, Ann, Peter, Eva, Elizabeth, Steven and Joseph.

Metro, originally from Fleming, NY in the Finger Lakes region, graduated from Union Springs High School of which he was proud of being on the State Champion basketball team with his brother, Joseph in his senior year. He was offered a sports scholarship to Cornell U. but declined to help the family with running their farm. He enlisted in the Army and was deployed to Alaska. Although it was very cold there, he loved Alaska because of his love of the great outdoors. He loved hunting, gardening, growing vegetables and eventually fishing (due to his wife’s love of fishing).

Metro came to the Washington DC area because of work. He was employed by Moses and Ecco in concrete construction and later became a carpenter foreman with George Hyman Construction Company in Bethesda, MD. He worked on many buildings in the Washington, DC area:  Watergate, White House Communications Center, Russian Embassy (including the housing and auditorium), downtown JW Marriott and National Theatre, Washington Harbor, Union Station, the Metro System (NIH/Bethesda area) and many others. His career ended with the building of Baltimore Orioles Stadium.

For many years, he was a parishioner at St. Nicholas Cathedral in Washington, DC. He worked tirelessly using his woodworking expertise for the beautification of the church with the installation of the iconostasis, the flooring and many other projects around the church (www.stnicholasdc.org).

After retirement, he was very active working on many small projects around the house and spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren on many adventures to the beach, the lake or just at home.

Friends may visit with the family on Wed., December 4, 2019 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church, 10201 Democracy Blvd., Potomac, MD 20854 (https://www.holyresurrection.com/).
