Richard Alan Koscielniak

1961-2012 Richard Alan Koscielniak, 51, of Safety Harbor Fla., formerly of Tulsa, Okla., and Lenox, died unexpectedly at his home on November 23rd 2012.

Son of the late Bernard and Beverly Musgrove Koscielniak, Richard was born in 1961 in Pittsfield. He attended Lenox schools until moving to Clearwater in 1975. Richard graduated from Clearwater H.S. in 1979. He worked for Applebee's for many years and also operated "Martha's Table" catering in both Oklahoma and Safety Harbor.

He gave of his time and talent at every opportunity - there were no strangers in his life! He loved cooking, visiting Cape Cod and the Berkshires, Clearwater Beach, and spending time with family and friends. Richard was a loving and tireless companion to his mother Beverly until her death earlier this year.

He is survived by brothers Ronald (Kathi) of Tarpon Springs, Fla., David (Katrina) of Land O'Lakes, Fla., Bernie (Amy) of Pinehurst, N.C., Mark Leon of Holyoke, Mass., and sister Lisa (James) Stankiewicz of Dalton. Richard was beloved Uncle to Laura and David Koscielniak, Brandon, Adam, Alicia (Hackney) Koscielniak, Amy and Jennifer Koscielniak, Christopher, Matthew, Daniel and Joshua Stankiewicz, and also leaves his Aunt Glenda Koscielniak, Uncle David Musgrove and wife Marilyn and countless cousins, extended family, co-workers and friends in Florida, Oklahoma and Massachusetts. Friend to all, Richard leaves a legacy of love and caring.

To honor his memory, reach out in love to family, friends or someone in need. Services will be held at Calvary Baptist Church at a later date.
