Petrykowski, Nicolas
1993 - 2018
Nicolas Petrykowski, age of 24, of Pataskala, died on Monday, January 15, 2018. He had been confined to a wheelchair from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy from the time he was a teenager, yet he enthusiastically pursued his many intellectual interests, one of which was growing giant pumpkins. This early experience directed him to work toward a degree in Plant Pathology and allowed him to assist with research in the Fungal Evolutionary Genomics Laboratory at The Ohio State University. At the time of death he was nearing completion of a Bachelor in Science degree at Ohio State and had started his application to graduate school with the ultimate goal of becoming a research professor. He is survived by his parents, Mark and Maria of Pataskala; and his brother, Benjamin, who is a student at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. In addition to his parents and brother, Nicolas is survived by his paternal grandparents, James and Elaine Petrykowski; his maternal grandmother, Gina Salamony; his uncles, Anthony and John Salamony of Seattle; and numerous other close relatives. Nicolas' family will receive friends from 5-8 PM on Friday, January 26 at Schoedinger Northeast Chapel, 1051 Johnstown Road, Gahanna, Ohio. A mass will be celebrated at St. Mathew the Apostle Church at 807 Havens Corners Road in Gahanna, Ohio at 10 AM Saturday, January 27. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (parentprojectmd.org). To share memories and leave condolences, please visit, www.schoedinger.com
