Obituary for Norbert Paul Vaitekunas

November 7, 1953 - October 1, 2020
Port Saint Lucie, Florida | Age 66


Norbert Paul Vaitekunas, age 66. Beloved, lifelong partner of Donna Bluj for 40 wonderful years. Proud father of Christine (Leon) Sampat, Elizabeth (Ken) Powe, and the late Paul Vaitekunas. Caring Big Papa of Payton, Paige, Jackson, and Henry. Dear brother of Peter (Beth) Vaitekunas, Rita (the late Gary) Desiero, and Gerald Vaitekunas. Loved by many, many nieces and nephews. Cherished son of Telesforas and Elizabeth Vaitekunas. Norbert passed away October 1, 2020.

Blessed with the rare gift of wonder and awe, Norbert saw the true beauty in the world. A man of great simplicity, he found happiness, love, and fulfillment in meaningful conversations with loved ones and long, scenic car rides listening to Lionel Richie. Remembered by family as a generous soul with a kind, yet protective spirit, Norbert often gave thoughtful gifts and gigantic bear hugs. His laughter, smile, and presence dominated any room he entered, and everyone who knew him was warmed by his heart. Norbert loved a good dare or challenge, often prevailing victorious with a memorable story to tell, but his proudest accomplishment in life was the love of his children, who adored him. His passion for the outdoors brought him to Florida to reside in the later years of life, where he enjoyed fishing, swimming, feeding the birds, and enjoying time with family and friends.
