Edward Mysliwiec
August 13, 2021
Edward Mysliwiec loved and lived life to the fullest. Always up for a fun and interesting adventure, Ed was always in! Ed made his way back to his house in Copemish, MI where he passed surrounded by loved ones August 13, 2021. The simple pleasures in life brought joy to Ed. Riding the Metra to Chicago and wandering around the city, walking the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day, or having a campfire with his family at his house in Copemish, MI, he loved it all.
Ed loved his family. Recently saying that he had spoken to all four of his children in one day, that was a great day! Ed was the kind of guy who could go on vacation by himself and come home with stories of all the great people he met. He loved talking with people from different places and they all had a great story. He was a truly happy guy! He will be so missed; we all lost a best friend.
Ed was born in Chicago, IL on March 31, 1943, and was very proud of it! He was one of four children born to Sophie (Stojak) and Edward Mysliwiec. He is survived by his sister Lorraine (Robert) Piezonka. He was the loving father of Denise Mysliwiec (Keith Huntley, Paul Hamilton), Edward (Susie) Mysliwiec, Marnell (Dave) Villarreal, Amanda (Brian) Otto. Girlfriend Joyce Gipson Cherished grandfather of John & Ryan Huntley, Maranda (Luke) Bright, Mackenzie and Isabella Mysliwiec, Andrew, Edward, Jenna & Alexis Mysliwiec, Brittany Collins, Tasha (Zach) Cozart, David & Samantha Villarreal, Brady & Gavin Otto Proud great grandfather of Kellan Huntley, Royce Bright, Joshua, Max, Zaylah and Miles Cozart, Thomas Middleton

I just want to post a couple of pictures of my love. He was and always will be the love of my life. He always said we fit together like two pieces in a puzzle and called me "My Joyce. I loved his wittiness, common sense and intelligence. His spirit lives on. We spoke of that and I read to him from my favorite religious articles. We loved taking the Metra down to the lake or walking on the river walk in Chicago. You are forever in my heart, my love.

I just want to share a photo that I feel embodies my darling, Ed. He did not like to be in the spotlight but he was the spotlight, itself, in our life together.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet Ed, but Joyce talked about him often with so much love and was enamored by his toughness, strength and resilience in fighting his cancer. They were so happy and definitely living life to the fullest the best they could. Sincere condolences to Joyce and Ed's family. May their memory of him be eternal.

I never got to meet Ed, but I heard so many wonderful things about him from Joyce. I'm so very sorry for the loss of his much needed light in this world.

My darling, Edward, you are and always will be cherished. My life is richer in ways most people will never experience. We were quarantined together in 2020-21 and even though the world was in tumult, we had each other and survived, didn't we? God knew we were destined to be with each other and you told anyone with ears that you were the luckiest man on the planet. But I was the one who was blessed ten times over to have you. I told you "home" was anywhere you were to me and my "happy" place was in your arms. You called me "my Joyce" and there was no end to telling me how much you loved me. My response was always that I loved you more. Thank you for sharing the best years of our lives together as a couple. I thank Dr. Benson and Kevin at NWM for the inspiration they shared and how Kevin was really family to us. The trips to Downtown on the Metra, walking on the river walk, holding hands and savoring just being together on your journey. Thank you for all the intimacy in sharing private memories and feelings with such honesty and love. God is what I was able to support your path with and I would like to believe that sustained you more than modern medicine. Love heals and our love was a tonic. You told me you would love me to infinity and for all time. But you never had to say it, I felt it without words. You loved people just like I did and we made friends even on the train and bus in the dead of winter. What a joy to be by your side. Thank you, my love. I will see you in my dreams. Meet me there, OK? You are my heart. Joyce
