Joseph William Terescik, age 72 of Warren, died Thursday, March 22, 2018 at St. John Providence Park Hospital in Novi. He was born March 4, 1946 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, son of the late Thomas and the late Catherine (nee: Pelish) Terescik.

A proud veteran of our distinguished armed forces, Joseph served with honor as a soldier in the United States Army during the Vietnam War era. Stationed in Germany for preparedness sake, we pay homage to Joseph for answering his call to duty with pride for his country, and for his bravery and willingness to stand in harm's way if the need arose. With thanks and praise from a grateful nation, we honor Joseph's service and extend our posthumous gratitude for extending his patriotic heart.

As for his career path, Joseph was one of the many who jumped aboard the automotive bandwagon when the industry was booming. Hired for the production line at Chrysler, Joseph extended the utmost in dedicated service to the automotive giant and was proud to be a member of UAW Local 140 throughout his employment. Following Joseph's many years of esteemed loyalty to his work, he accepted his well-deserved retirement and headed into the next wonderful chapter in life as a Golden Warrior.

Known for being a hard worker, Joseph was also known for the many ways he enjoyed time away from the job as well. One of these was through his love of playing card games, an activity he loved sharing with both family and friends alike. Though one of the games, "Golf" is a little less familiar to many,…the other, "Euchre" reigns supreme as one of the card games that keeps many Michigander's captivated for hours,…as it did with Joseph. As for another game of chance with a different spin, Joseph found great enjoyment in visiting the casinos and giving Ol' Lady Luck a run for her money. Whether right here at home at the MGM Grand downtown, or maybe across the Mighty Mac at the casino in St. Ignace, or perhaps even further north at the Bay Mills Casino in Brimley up in the U.P.,…Joseph certainly knew how to spread the wealth in the hopes of creating even more for himself. Whichever place he chose, those One-Armed Bandits surely got a workout!

He was also quite the sports enthusiast and enjoyed many of the popular genres like hockey, baseball and football. When it came to the latter of the bunch, there was no mistaking Joseph's enthrallment with college football and the unique competitiveness that always seemed to stir him up. But if it had to do with the pro's, then there was no question regarding his allegiance to the iconic Pittsburg Steeler's. Hailing from the great state of Pennsylvania, Joseph's roots ran deep when it came to his Steel Town Pals.

Another of Joseph's favorite pastimes was eating out. Though he was renowned for his skills and expertise with a BBQ, nothing makes the food taste greater than when somebody else is preparing it, serving it, then cleaning it all up,…and not a finger has been lifted, except to pay the bill, of course. That was truly the definition of "Livin' Large" for Joseph, especially when dinner was being served at the famed, Polish Village.

He served our country, helped build our cars, and enjoyed a host of fun-filled moments in between it all making memories with those he loved. Whether you were family or friend, you were treasured in Joseph's life and he coveted the blessings of sharing it with so many special people.

Joseph was the beloved husband of Linda, and dear father of Chad Maykowski and Marc Maykowski. Loving brother of Frances Terescik, the late Eleanor Wrubel, and the late Thomas Terescik.

Visitation for Joseph will be held Monday, March 26th from 3-9 pm, with an evening Rosary Service, at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd.) in Warren.

He will lie in state on Tuesday from 9:30 am until time of the Funeral Mass at 10:00 am at St. Paul of Tarsus Catholic Church, 41300 Romeo Plank Road, Clinton Township, MI 48038. Interment will follow at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township.
