Felix Niedzialkowski was born circa 1922 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His parents were Ignatz John (1883-1967) and Marianna Niedzialkowski (1890-1941); he had two sisters, Mary (born ca. 1923) and Esther (born ca. 1925). In 1940 the family lived at 1206 Michigan Avenue in Milwaukee. Ignatz was born in Poland, arrived in Milwaukee in 1907 and was finally naturalized in 1940; in 1918 his occupation was molder for International Harvester. His wife Marianna was born in Wisconsin.
Felix Niedzialkowski joined the U.S. Army probably in 1942 and was assigned to the 626th Engineers, L Equipment Company; by November 1943 had been promoted to Corporal. At this time his unit was stationed near Nashville, Tennessee, possibly at Camp Forrest in Tullahoma. The 626th Engineers was subsequently sent to the European Theatre of Operations in 1944. Since his military record is not available, it is not known if Felix continued to serve with the unit until the end of the war. Nothing further is known about his life or career after late 1943.
