Thomas George Nowicki

thomas nowicki
Thomas George Nowicki, 83, of Bay City, our dedicated and loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend died June 15, 2015 due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Tom was born in Detroit on May 9, 1932, the son of the late Thomas and Winnie (Dahmer) Nowicki. At the age of four, Tom's parents preceded him in death and he was lovingly adopted by his uncle and aunt, Edward and Rose (Nearing) Nowicki, who have also preceded him in death. Tom proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1949-1952 during the Korean Conflict. On August 22, 1953, Tom was united in marriage to the love of his life, the former Lorraine Gruszynski. Tom was previously employed by Bay Landscaping and worked for the Bay City Fire Department from 1958-1992, retiring as assistant fire chief. His true love was his family. He enjoyed catching up with his kids and grandkids, along with the smiles and giggles of the great-grandchildren. He was known for taking his morning trips around town, with his special stop at 7-11 on Cass for his Big Gulp. He would then make his way down to the boat launch where he would read the paper. Tom also enjoyed reading suspense novels, anything to do with the Civil War, woodworking and wood carving, along with crossword puzzles. Tom leaves to cherish his memory his five children, Allan and Daniel Nowicki, Thomas (Kathy) Nowicki, Donald (Pam) Nowicki and Susan Nowicki. He was the unconditional loving grandfather of Jennifer (Michael) Oginsky, Kyle (Lakeisha) Nowicki, Allison (Austin) Johnston, Dustin (Karly) Vance and Thomas, Zachary, Katie and Tyler Nowicki. He is also survived by his great-grandchildren, Bella, Jacob, Andrew and Baby Johnston on the way, and his brother, William (Jean) Nowicki. In addition to his parents, Tom was welcomed home to heaven by his devoted wife of sixty-one years, Lorraine, who preceded him in death on August 31, 2014 and his sisters, Carol (Dan) Emberton and Delores (Ed) VanZandt. Tom's family will be present to receive visitors on Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 10:00 AM until the time of his 11:00 AM Celebration of Life at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 955 N. Pine Rd., Hampton Twp. A reception will follow in The Wesley Room at Skorupski's with interment to be held in Floral Gardens Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the wishes of the family. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family online at www.skorupskis.com.
