LGA mourns the loss of Joseph Szuderski

The LaGuardia Airport family lost one of its best with the passing of Joseph Szuderski - “Suds” - on October 17th.  Joe was a long-term employee of the Port Authority, with 32 years of service.  At the time of his passing, Joe held the position of Operations Group Supervisor (FS4) in the Airport Operations, Security and Services Division (AOSSD). 

Having started his career at LGA, and after spending the last 23 years in AOSSD, Joe had become a true bastion at the airport, and particularly within the Operations team.  A generally quiet, introspective man, he was widely admired for his thoughtful, friendly demeanor and keen intelligence, and routinely ribbed for his quirky support of the Baltimore Orioles, St. Louis Cardinals, and Washington Redskins. 

All of us at LGA, and all those within the Port Authority, the airlines and other facility tenants who worked with Joe, will sorely miss our great friend Suds!
