Obituary of Wojciech Dyrynda
Wojciech Dyrynda, 69, of Vernon Hills, passed away Jan 3, 2023 at Advocate Condell Medical Center.
Wojciech was born and raised in Poland, where he earned his Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bialystok University of Technology with the highest marks. In 1989 he moved to the United States, working as an electrical technologist at several companies throughout the Chicagoland area until in 2002, when he started his successful 20-year career with Baxter International, with plans to retire early this year.
He was a proud father to his two sons, Thomas and Michael, devoting much of his time to providing them the best possible childhood and path to success. Wojciech was a talented handyman, able to fix anything around the house. An avid outdoorsman, he took every available opportunity to share his passions: fishing, boating, taking long walks through the woods and sitting around the fire with his family and friends was when he was at his happiest.
We lost a wonderful, intelligent, loving man and he will be dearly missed. Wojciech is survived by his adoring wife Grace of 30 years; his loving sons Thomas and Michael; his loving daughters in Poland Magdalena and Katarzyna, and his cherished sister in Poland Anna Kulikowska. He is preceded in death by his parents Jan and Janina and his brother Jan.
