Obituary for Richard A. "Rick" Kujawa

Richard A. �Rick� Kujawa, a resident of Highland Township, died at his home on Friday, June 5, 2009 at the age of 61. Born on March 14, 1948, the only child of Stanley & Dorothy Kujawa, Rick grew up in Detroit and graduated from Cody High School in 1966. Following graduation, Rick began his college education at Wayne State University, where he focused his artistic talents towards a Fine Arts major. He met a young woman named Debbie Mudry, began dating and soon fell in love before their marriage at Mother of Our Saviour Church in Detroit on August 29, 1969. Mr. & Mrs. Kujawa remained in the Detroit area to begin their new lives as husband & wife and were soon blessed with the births of their daughter, Rachel, and son, Keith. They moved to Union lake in 1978 before coming to Highland Township. Rick made his career in the automotive industry as a clay sculptor in the design department with Chrysler and later with General Motors. After twenty-four years with GM, he retired on May 1, 2009.
Rick Kujawa found his joys in the company of those he loved. He enjoyed many memorable trips to his cottage in Onaway, Michigan and his annual vacations with his wife to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida. He greatly enjoyed being busy around his home in Highland where he could be found in the throws of new gardening projects, tending to his orchids or woodworking. Rick didn�t care much for chipmunks. Accompanied by his longtime sidekick, �Boone,� his 12 year-old dog, he often patrolled the yard with a bb gun to ensure that the birdseed was for the birds. Rick also enjoyed collecting die-cast cars and was a patient and devoted fan of the Detroit Lions. He loved when his son took him out fishing on the boat and had just recently outfitted himself with all new fly-fishing equipment. Above all, Rick loved his wife Debbie and was most thankful for their wonderful marriage and for the unending gifts of family.

Rick was preceded in death by his parents, Stanley & Dorothy Kujawa and father-in-law, Nicholas Mudry. In addition to his beloved wife, Debbie and their son, Keith Kujawa of White Lake and daughter, Rachel (Troy Farnwalt) Kujawa of Highland, he is survived by his mother-in-law, Lorraine and several dear friends.

A Funeral Mass will be held at Church of the Holy Spirit, 3700 N. Harvey Lake Rd., Highland on Wednesday, June 10th at 10AM with Fr. Leo Lulko officiating. Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 East Liberty, Milford Tuesday 3-8PM and Wednesday 9AM until time of Mass at the Church.
