Alex F. Wysocki Obituary
Alex F. Wysocki

AGE: 91 • Wilmington

Alex F. Wysocki, 91, husband of Marie Ross Wysocki of Wilmington, died of natural causes on April 18. Born in Wilmington, raised in Philadelphia, and a long-time resident of Chadds Ford, PA, he was the son of the late Frances and Alexander Wysocki. Mr. Wysocki spent most of his career at the DuPont Company's Wilmington Shops facility. A veteran of World War II, he served with the U.S. Army Air Force in the Philippines and Japan. Politically active in retirement, he was for many years chairman of the Delaware Conservative Caucus. Mr. Wysocki was a tireless and energetic advocate of conservative causes with his writing in newspapers from Cape Cod to Myrtle Beach. Profoundly steeped in American history, he maintained a lifelong connection with Mount Vernon and his historical role model, George Washington. His deep affection for his Philadelphia upbringing was always a significant force in his life, from his great affection for his years at St. Columba's school to a happy childhood growing up in the shadow of Shibe Park where he was able to interact with the likes of the legendary Connie Mack and to cheer on his all-time favorite Philadelphia Athletics player Indian Bob Johnson.

Beloved by all who knew him, in addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his brother Stanley, whose heroic death in World War II was a constant inspiration. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children Alexander (Jean) of Mendenhall, PA; Michael (Ann) of Newport, PA; and Kathleen, Diana and Eric, all of Chadds Ford, PA. He is also survived by his brother Alfred (Doris) of Garnet Valley, PA; grandchildren Holli, Michael, Amy, Mandy and Mary and seven great grandchildren.

Funeral arrangements are private. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
