It was his passion when he was young, and he honed his skills carefully. He participated in the Amateur Bowlers Tour and many leagues, earning numerous trophies along the way.

And he was particularly proud of bowling a perfect game, scoring a 300, in 2009, his family said.

On Aug. 16, 1991, he married Ingrid Tapola in West Bend, and they settled in Port Washington.

Mr. Godersky worked as a production planning manager at Milwaukee Electric Tools for 15 years before accepting a job at Vilter Corp.

He retired due to health issues in 2006.

Mr. Godersky was a former member of the Port Washington Fire Department.
