Richard ‘Wisco’ Wisniewski

Richard “Wisco” Wisniewski passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Dec. 17, 2015, at the age of 71.

He was the beloved husband of Phyllis (nee Schaffner) for 38 years. He was the proud father of Sara (David) Northway; and loving grandfather of Ben and Sam. He is further survived by other dear relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Margaret (nee Schlass), and his sister, Judy.

Wisco was a man of love.

He loved his family above all else, and he dearly loved being a grandpa. Wisco loved golf and his cars and he truly loved being with his friends, old and new.

Although he will be missed more than we can say, we know that his love is stronger than death and that Wisco, and his love, will live in our hearts, always.
