March 21, 1946 – May 26, 2024 

Roger Krol, 78, of Madison, NY, passed away on Sunday, May 26, 2024. He was born in Rochester, NY to Edwin and Josephine Dziubal Krol on March 21, 1946.  He moved to Oriskany Falls in 1964, where he initially worked at his family’s business, Joe’s Hotel.  He married Susan R. Wester on December 23, 1967.  He was a long time employee of Eastern Rock Products, later Hansen Inc., of Oriskany Falls, NY, spending the majority of those years as a member of the sales team.  He was later employed by Ocuto Blacktop and Paving of Rome, NY until his retirement. He was a member of the Oriskany Falls Fire Department and a former member of the Oriskany Falls Alliance Masonic Lodge #1097.  He will be remembered for his love of all things sports, especially his beloved Syracuse Orangemen.  His smile and laugh, as well as the occasional Tarzan call, always made him the life of the party. https://owenspavlotrogers.com/tribute/details/3308/Roger-Krol/obituary.html

Zoot Suit Riots begin in Los Angeles

“On June 3, 1943, a group of U.S. sailors marches through downtown Los Angeles, carrying clubs and other makeshift weapons and attacking anyone wearing a “zoot suit”—the baggy wool pants, oversized coats, and porkpie hats favored by many young men of color at the time. Over the next week, the so-called Zoot Suit Riots spread throughout the city, including the largely Mexican-American neighborhood of East Los Angeles and the largely Black neighborhood of Watts. The riots marked the culmination of simmering racial tensions in Los Angeles, set against the backdrop of World War II.”
