Michael Skrzypczak Obituary

Michael John Skrzypczak, 92, of Erie, Pennsylvania, was called to his heavenly home on June

29, 2023, in Bloomington, Indiana. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, veteran, and

a devoted Catholic.


Michael is survived by his devoted wife, Helen, of 69 years and their sons and

spouses/partners; Dan (Charlene Reeger), Bryan (Sandi Skrzypczak), David (Vickie Maxey),

and Joseph; ten grandchildren, Christie (Skrzypczak) Seaton, Jennifer Skrzypczak, James

Skrzypczak, Deidra (Skrzypczak) McLaughlin, Scott Skrzypczak, Wednesday Rome, Maximilian

Rome, Abigail Skrzypczak, Casey Skrzypczak, Jared Skrzypczak; and eight

great-grandchildren. Michael is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Skrzypczak and

Martha (Jaskolski) Skrzypczak, his siblings, Irene (Skrzypczak) Krahe and James Skrzypczak,

and eldest son, Michael Skrzypczak.


Michael enlisted in The U.S. Navy from 1947 - 1951 as he served during the time of the Korean

War in the Mediterranean as a Flight Navigator. After discharging from The Navy, Michael met,

fell in love with, and married Helen. Michael continued his education at Gannon University,

where he graduated with his Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering. Following his

graduation, Michael worked as a Draftsman at General Electric (Erie, PA), then as a

Construction Cost Estimator at Sessinghaus & Ostergaard, Inc. (Erie, PA) and at HBE

Corporation (St. Louis, MO), retiring in 1992, when he and Helen returned to Erie."


Michael was an extraordinary story teller and lived a simple life with his wife that was full of golf

outings and road trips. Michael was a truly great man whose impact will be forever felt by his

family, who loves him dearly. His departure from this life has left an unfillable gap in the hearts of

his loved ones. His ability to provide, support, and love will be forever ingrained in all he knew.
