OBITUARY

Walter Suchodolski Jr.

March 20, 1937November 17, 2020

Walter Suchodolski Jr., age 83, of Grand Rapids, Michigan passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Walter was born March 20, 1937 in Grand Rapids to Walter & Violet (McGarvey) Suchodolski, Sr. He was a lifelong resident of the area.

Walter spent his career working first for Kelvinator, and then for the City of Grand Rapids from which he retired.

When he was taking time for himself, as a younger man, Walter enjoyed the peace of the woods while hunting and the stillness of the lake with his fishing pole in hand. As he grew older and well into retirement, it was the excitement and noise of the casinos that drew Walter's attention and he was frequently found in front of a slot machine.

Always willing to help others, Walter will be remembered for being generous with time and talents. Surviving are daughters, Jeannie (John) Fortuna and Mary (Brian) Antcliff; son, Michael Suchodolski (Brenda Smith); grandchildren: Sarah Suchodolski; Cody Dusendang, Shelbie Dusendang, and Madison Dusendang; his great-grandchildren: Silas, Angel & Rowan and his sisters Beverly Lilly and Donna Suchodolski Zograph as well as many other relatives. Walter was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years Karen in 2017, his sister Marcia Roach and his brother Ronald Suchodolski.

Walter has been cremated and will be buried next to his wife in Plainfield Township Cemetery. The family plans to hold a Celebration of Life at a later date.
