Mathew Bierzychudek Obituary

Mathew Thaddeus Bierzychudek, 83, of Kingman, Arizona, peacefully passed away on December 25, 2023, after celebrating Christmas with his family in Shelby, MI. He was born September 10, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Jacob and Angeline (Wrobel) Bierzychudek.

Matt, as he was known to friends and family, was raised on the family farm in Kenosha, WI. Here he learned a strong work ethic by helping to run the farm while nurturing his love for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. After graduating from Mary D. Bradford High School, he took a groundcrew job with WI Electric. He married and raised four children in Kenosha, eventually working up to a linesman with WI Electric. During this time, Matt took on a second career as owner of Matt’s Tree Service. This enabled his two sons to develop arborists skills that they still use to this day. Besides passing on his arborist skills, he shared his love of the outdoors with all four of his children, in addition to supporting his children’s sports endeavors.  

In his later years, tired of the cold Wisconsin winters, he found himself enjoying life in Arizona. His love of the land was now cultivated by growing citrus trees in his yard, and his friends and family looked forward to receiving fresh grapefruit and oranges from Grandpa Matt. Arizona also gave him the opportunity to cultivate other new relationships including his special love, Dee, and close friends.

Mathew is survived by: his four children: Dominick (Betsy) Bierdek, Douglas (Pamela) Bierzychudek, Anne (Rhett) Williamson, and Bonnie (Brian) Anderson; 11 grandchildren, Austin and Angela Bierdek, Abigail, Kathryn, and William Bierzychudek, Grant, Paul, Audrey, and Troy Williamson, Stacy and Colton Anderson; and his brother, Edwin Bierzychudek. 

Mathew was preceded in death by: his parents, Jacob and Angeline; and his sister, Dolores.

A private celebration of Mathew’s life will be held at 12:00 pm, Saturday, December 30, 2023, at Harris Funeral Home, 267 N. Michigan Avenue, Shelby, Michigan 49455.
