Obituary for Raymond Brzezinski

Raymond Brzezinski, 96, of Wausau, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
He was born on Dec. 3, 1922, in Bevent to the late Peter and Mary (Wilkowski) Brzezinski.

Raymond was first and foremost a “Hard Worker” at his job, welding most of his employed life, and never lost his work ethic after a forced, early retirement. All of his life, a self-sufficient provider for our family, as an excellent gardener (Tomato Specialist) Canning, Freezing and Cooking Fresh Veggies from the massive garden he built, prepared and maintained meticulously (Best Sauer Kraut). He was a very proficient Hunter, Forager (especially Wild Berries & Wild Mushrooms), and Home Butcher “extraordinaire”! He Fished for every type of fish (game & rough) and Hunted (Small and Big game) in WI, Processing, Smoking, Cooking/Canning/Preserving, his harvest for the freezer and root cellar to share with all. His finest trait was acceptance of everyone he met no matter the differences there may have been…he found the good in everyone! There was no one more dedicated to his wife, every minute of every day of his life he relentlessly made our mom his priority! He made a huge difference in the lives of all who knew him! The world surely misses him, and all those like him who have passed.

God has truly blessed us with his presence!
