Obituary of Richard A. Gryksa
Richard, or affectionately known as “Dick,”, was a family-oriented, fun-loving man with a sense of humor and a quick wit. As an accountant, he was also very organized and very well said which made him be a formal structure thinker. Richard was a true people person and loved to be the life of the party! He also enjoyed family gatherings with his “kissing cousins”, where joking and stories were shared and songs were sung. His family held him in high regard, as he always worked hard to provide for his family. Richard had a close relationship with his brother, Michael, who he shared a love for jazz and classical music. He loved to visit his brother Mike’s patio where grilling and cocktails were enjoyed with his family. One of Richard’s proudest moments was when he graduated with his MBA from Canisius College. Establishing his own business, he enjoyed his job as the typical “account-thrifty” type. When not working, Richard was known for his impeccable style, loving French cuffs. Richard also enjoyed watching Sci-Fi TV shows and movies, reading and cooking. Richard also spent much of his time gardening and taking care of his many house plants. Richard “Dick” will be greatly missed by everyone that knew how hard-working he was. Gryksa, Richard A. December 16, 2020 of West Seneca, NY. Beloved friend of Mary Lee Sulkowski; devoted brother of Michael (Susan) Flatt and late Marsha Raczka; cherished uncle of Michael (Lisa Reinig) Flatt, Dawn (Ronald VanOstrand) Raczka, and Todd Raczka; also survived by great-nieces and nephews.
