Obituary for William Charles Salczynski

William "Bill" Charles Salczynski, a resident of Commerce, died peacefully surrounded by his family on December 1, 2018. He was 75 years old.

William was born in Detroit on August 5, 1943 to William and Rosalee Salczynski and was a 1961 graduate of Catholic Central High School where he played football, hockey, and baseball while maintaining an “A” average throughout all four years. Following high school, he earned a Bachelor Degree in business from University of Michigan and later earned his Master’s Degree in business from Wayne State University. He met his beloved wife, Patricia McMahon, and they were married in 1966 and together raised three daughters, Lori, Lisa and Linda. He was drafted into the United States Army in 1968 and was sent to Vietnam where he was stationed for ten months and earned the rank of SP5 (T). William retired from Ford Motor Company in 1995 after thirty years of service in the purchasing department. William and Pat enjoyed many years of playing golf together, boating, skiing and traveling with family and friends. They were known to many as “Mr. and Mrs. Ski”.

In addition to his beloved wife, Patricia, William is survived by three beautiful daughters and their wonderful husbands, Lori (Dwayne) Price, Lisa (Jay) Luchies and Linda (Tom) Horton; six amazing grandchildren, Madison Price (14), Mason Price (12), Lauren Luchies (10), Gavin Luchies (8), Samantha Horton (8) and Brooke Horton (6); two dear brothers and sister-in-laws, Jim (Linda West) Salczynski and Gerry (Mary Murphy) Salczynski.
