Michael F. Frydrych of Ipswich died peacefully on January 6, 2012 at Essex Park in Beverly. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of sixty-six years Mildred A. (Swiszcz) Frydrych in 2008.

He was born on November 5, 1913 in Ipswich where he lived throughout his life. To help support his family, he started working at thirteen years old in the Agawam Tourist camp in Ipswich. After attending Beverly Trade School he worked at the United Shoe in Beverly for forty-five years. In his later life he worked at the Turner-Wallima machine shop in Essex, finally retiring at age eighty-four. He enjoyed a number of favorite activities which included gardening, painting, wall papering, reading and caring for his property and lawns. He was an active parishioner at the former Sacred Heart Parish. Serving as an altar boy in his youth, he was an usher for many years, worked at the annual parish picnic and called numbers at the weekly bingo games. He was also a communicant of Our Lady of Hope Parish in Ipswich.

He is survived by three sons, Paul Frydrych of Ipswich, Melvyn Frydrych of Cumberland, RI and Theodore Frydrych and his wife Sheryl of Boothbay, ME, and a daughter, Andrea Frydrych of Ipswich. He is also survived by sisters Julia Dudzisz and Charlotte Frydrych, both of Ipswich, a brother, Joseph Frydrych of Topeka, Kansas, and several nieces and nephews. He was blessed with four grandchildren, Kristen Ray, Mary Ray, Michael Frydrych and Bryan Frydrych, and five great-grandchildren, Jake, Brady and Maggie Ray and Andrew and Aiden Ray. He loved them all and he will be dearly missed.

Private services were held at the request of the family, with arrangements by the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.
