Richard Paul Wronski, age 54 of Shelby Township, died Monday, February 20, 2017 at the Beaumont Medical Clinic in Sterling Heights, Michigan. He was born September 27, 1962 in Detroit, son of Paul Wronski and Virginia (nee: McCarthy) Wronski.
Employed as a driver for the SMART transportation services, Richard was the perfect guy for the job as he possessed quite a gregarious and infectious personality that touched the hearts and souls of countless people, both on the job and in his personal life as well. Always laughing and joking, it really didn't matter who his audience was for Richard to have a good time. And the important thing,…he always left others' lives more enriched simply by being the wonderful person he was to all.
When Richard found time away from the job and life's demands, you'd often find him taking a stroll as he loved to go for walks. Being one who appreciated the outdoors, getting out and getting some fresh air and exercise meant the world to him. Another of his joys in life came from his family and friends and the memories made with each of them, respectively. And though he played no favorites, there's no mistaking that his youngest child, Christopher, was truly the light of his life.
From more of his charitable heart came his involvement with the Autism Society, an association in which Richard was quite active. Having a child that is challenged with the disorder, it simply heightened his desire to do all that he was able to bring about a difference.
Be it Autism or any number of ways that Richard sought to help, there's no question that he touched a multitude of lives through his journey in this life. He leaves behind a storehouse of wonderful memories to reflect upon for those who were blessed to know him. He will be missed immensely and loved eternally.
Richard was the loving companion of Denise Johnson, and cherished father of Nicholas, Joshua, and Christopher, grandfather of Connor, Josh Jr. and Brayden. He is also survived by his dear sister Kari (Nick) Knight.
A Memorial Service for Richard will be held on Saturday, March 4th from 6-9 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 1/2 Mile Rd) in Warren.
Memorial donations are appreciated to the Christopher Wronski Fund, a source of help for the family for his future health care needs.
