Richard Gutowski passed away on Tuesday, October 2, 2018. He was born on January 26, 1931, at home in Toledo, the sixth and youngest child of Stanley and Frances Gutowski. Richard proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War where he was stationed in Germany. He was employed with Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company until his retirement in 1985. He was a member of All Saints Catholic Church and sang in the choir, a lifetime member of the American Legion Post #533, and volunteered in the church kitchen during summer festivals. His greatest joys were fishing on Lake Erie with his son, having the family over for his famous fish fry and babysitting his grandchildren following his retirement. Surviving is his loving wife of 68 years, Katherine (Kazia Klepacz) Gutowski; sons, Thomas (Judy) Gutowski, Gerald Gutowski; daughter, Rebecca (Gordie) Chauvin; grandchildren, Jessica (Devin) Howard, John Lydy and Matthew (Christina) Radecki. Richard was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Floyd (Alice) Gutowski; sisters, Eleanor Gutowski, Dorothy (Al) Jankowski, Irene (Joe) Kajaniak, Loretta (Ted) Zawierucha. In accordance with Richards wishes, his body was donated UTMC. A Memorial Mass was held Saturday, October 13, at All Saints Catholic Church in Rossford with bagpipe music by Devin Howard. The family suggests memorial contributions in Richard’s memory be directed to Hospice of Northwest Ohio, 30000 East River Road, Perrysburg, OH 43551.
