Richard was born in Whitefish Bay on Jan. 21, 1932, the son of Edward  
and Bernice (nee Kostka) Wysocky.  Richard was united in marriage to  
Clarice (nee Lepton) and they were blessed with three children.  
Richard was a longtime employee in the creative services department  
at the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co. He also worked briefly at the Pabst  
Brewing Co. and then ran his own commercial design company for many  
years before retirement.

Some of his hobbies were gardening and reading. He took great pride  
in his well-maintained yard where he also grew roses. He enjoyed the  
Christmas season because he decorated the house inside and outside in  
different themes. He will be missed by his golden retriever, Abby who  
was the last of many. Richard especially was a very proud grandfather  
and loved his grandchildren very much.

Richard is survived by his wife, Clarice; son, Ken (Stephanie  
Marchese) Wysocky; daughter, Karen Wysocky; and grandchildren, Katie,  
Jenny, Maddy and John Wysocky.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his son, David Wysocky.
Mueller Funeral Home & Crematory is serving the family.
