Plewa, Ryszard

Ryszard Adam Plewa died peacefully on June 17th with his family by his side.

He was loved and cherished by wife Paulina, his sister Bozena, his children Wojciech ‘Woody’ and Monica (Mike) and his many dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents Halina and Marian and his former wife Elizabeth.

He will be deeply missed by his grandchildren Luca and Jonah and his nephews Michael and Filip.

Rysiu lived his life with joy and an open heart.  Always impeccably dressed and classy. He loved dancing, music, fitness, food, travel, babies and dogs.  He was a wonderful teacher and shared his passions with those around him.  He was funny, charming, lovable and kindhearted. His smile lit up the room and he was the life of every party. He was fiercely proud of the life, family and friendships he built, and he openly adored us all.

We are broken hearted by his sudden and tragic passing.

Let’s hurry to love people because they leave us too soon.

    Moje najszczersze wyrazy współczucia. Gdy dwoje ludzi się kocha i jedno z nich odchodzi, zawsze rodzi się pytanie: dlaczego tak wcześnie, przede mną, a nie razem? Pamiętaj, że ta druga osoba zostaje na zawsze z nami. W naszym sercu i w naszych wspomnieniach. Bądź silna Paulinka.
