William Bryfczynski

Obituary of William Bryfczynski

Mr. William “Will” Rease Bryfczynski, age 26 of Marietta, GA passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 8th, 2017. The world lost an amazing young man who touched everyone he encountered. His broad smile and infectious laugh never failed to brighten days. Will was a lifelong Packers fan who could be found proudly wearing green and gold from head to toe on football Sundays. As a fierce competitor, Will excelled in athletics his entire life. Will was a most likable guy who had many interests. He had an eclectic taste in music and enjoyed going to concerts and listening to his collection of vinyl LPs. Will was a talented chef who loved to cook. William is going to be missed by so many for he touched a lot of lives.

William was born January 28th, 1991 in Atlanta, GA.  He was a graduate of Walton High School in Marietta, GA, Class of 2009, and went on to earn an associates degree from Chattahoochee Technical College.  Will worked with his father as a service technician in the water treatment field, helping provide clean, safe drinking water to many of the cities and counties throughout the Southeast. It is a joy and a privilege for any parent to work side by side with their child in the family business.

He is survived by his parents, Paul and Sheila Laritson Bryfczynski of Cherry Log, GA; brother, Samuel Bryfczynski of Troy, Michigan; grandparents, Tom and Monique Laritson of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Alex and Grace Bryfczynski of Green Bay, Wisconsin; uncles and aunts, Jane and Marty School of Green Bay, Andy Thor of Green Bay, Patrick and Kate Laritson of Appleton, Wisconsin, and Peter Laritson of Milwaukee; cousins, Ben School, Erin Lucas, Hank Laritson, Matt Laritson, Lucy Laritson and Charlie Laritson. He is preceded in death by his aunt, Amy Thor of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

A funeral mass will be held at 11am on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at Good Samaritan Catholic Church in Ellijay, GA with Father Carlos Vargas officiating. The family will receive friends from 10am in the adjacent church social hall until mass begins at 11am. All are invited to a luncheon following the service.
