Grace M. Rothrock
02/25/2022

Grace Rothrock, 72, a 44- year resident of Hinsdale, pass away unexpectedly February 25, 2022. She was born in 1949 in Chicago to Anthony and Florence Lewandowski as the youngest of five children. She and her siblings were remarkably close and include Mary Ann Smith, Carrie Ulane, Margie Andresunias, and Anthony Lee. Grace was a proud graduate of Eastern Illinois University where she met Richard, her husband of 50 years. She earned a master’s degree from Northeastern Illinois University. She continued personal and professional education throughout her life. She was an enthusiastic third-grade teacher in the Maercker District for 20 years before retiring. She was a strong social justice advocate and appreciated lively political discussion. In retirement she dove into her passion of landscaping and gardening. She also enjoyed reading, walking, and puzzles. She relished time with her family – there was nothing she enjoyed more than reading with her grandchildren. Grace is survived by her husband Richard, her sons Nick and Elliot, and her five grandchildren. A celebration of her life will be held this summer for close family.

02/21/2022

Richard Vincent Styczynski, aka Rick Styfer, Stitch and the Blond Bomber passed away at his Burr Ridge home, surrounded by 20 family members on February 21, 2022. Rick was born in Chicago and grew up in Marquette Park. He had fond memories of playing football for St Rita High School and continued his football dreams at St Ambrose College as a scholarship athlete. There, he met Suzy, his wife of 62 years.

He established Styfer Construction in 1961 and built the family’s first home in Oak Lawn. In 1980, after a long weekly ‘Sunday after church’ search, he found the perfect wooded lot in Burr Ridge, where he built the family’s second home. He took great care in maintaining the home, and especially tended and admired his backyard, Styfer Park.

Besides his family, his greatest passion was his custom printing company, Creative Menus. He specialized in restaurant and hotel printing. He also built the Creative Printing Company building in 1976 as a full-service printing company. He employed all his children, along with several of their friends. He perfected his R&D by taking a menu from every restaurant he frequented. Rick continued to sell menus and work his business until his passing. He was a great storyteller, quick witted and loved his hotdogs, pork roast and a Maxwell St. pork chop sandwich.

The ultimate love of his life was his family. He loved to tell the story of meeting Suzy Fischer on her first day of college at Marycrest in Davenport, IA. He leaves behind his beloved wife Suzy, his loving children Cindy (the late Charlie) Morgan, the late Janie (Ray) Soto, the late infant Teddy, the late infant Julie, Suzy (Will) Marcus, Amy (Tom) Sabin, and Rich (Nicole) Styczynski. Beloved grandchildren Richard, Hope, Sierra, Weston, Peter, Holly, Alexandra, and Jonathan.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, February 27 from 2pm to 6pm at Adolf Funeral Home, 7000 S.
