Gary Scott Pyzik

Gary Scott Pyzik, 68, passed away on September 22, 2021.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Helen Pyzik; his sister, Pamela Ayres; and his step-mother, Nancy Pyzik.  

He is survived by his three children, Trisha Pyzik, Scott Pyzik, George Pyzik (Mary); a brother, Roger Pyzik (Carolin); two step-brothers, Tim Merritt (Diane) and Terry Merritt (Laura); two step-sisters, Roxanne DeWeerd (Jim) and Kim Wright (Steve); three grandchildren, Chelsea (Jess), Taylor, and Cody; and one great-grandchild, Gemma. Gary is also survived by his ex-wife, Elizabeth Barrett, whom he remained close friends with, and her other two children, Sarah Barrett and Hannah Gee, who he loved as his own. 

Gary was born in Guam and lived in various places around the world with his Air Force family, settling in Tecumseh, Mich. in 1968. He attended Clinton High School and then moved to Texas in 1982. He retired from the Container Store after 15 years. He traveled the U.S. delivering, shining, and showing motorcycles for Strokers Dallas and enjoyed hanging out with the many friends he met there. Gary loved spending time with family, which included boating, skiing, and fishing on lakes all over Michigan, and making his famous breakfast burritos. He could often be found hanging out in his back yard or traveling around with his dog and best friend, Mr. Bentley. You would rarely ever think of Gary without also thinking of at least one of his passions: motorcycles, tattoos, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and comfortable old jeans filled with patches.  

A Celebration of Life service will be held in Michigan at a later date.
