Michael J. Hriczko, 64, of West Suffield, passed away on March 7, 2019 at Bickford Health Center. Born on January 30, 1955, son of the late Joseph and Doris (Comstock) Hriczko.
Michael grew up in Suffield, attended Suffield Schools Graduating Class of 1973 and attended Mitchell College.
He was employed by Windsor Manufacturing Division of Barns Group which he loved, proudly giving his loyalty and dedication for over 30 years. If you knew Mike you knew about his unrestrained and lethal sense of humor. He was known to have caused a few business meetings to erupt into laughter from his impeccable delivery of witty one-liners when he raised his hand and was called upon. And there were the hilarious announcements he would send out over the PA system, if he got the chance. It made him happy to make people laugh. Mike had an astounding memory and loved all things sports, particularly baseball. Players, games, dates, stats, it was all filed away in his memory, along with classic old television, movie and music lore. He will be missed deeply.
Michael is survived by his son James Hriczko and his wife Kathleen of Bartett, TX; his grandson Phillip; a brother William Hriczko and family of VT; and his beloved rescue cat Spencer.
Sincere thanks to all his caregivers throughout his illness, Pat Beeman and staff of Suffield Community Aid for all their support; and special thanks to Robin Hinckley for being his final, most gentle friend.
