Obituary for Gary Francis Pukala

Gary Francis Pukala, age 64 of Macomb, passed away October 17, 2019. Gary was born November 23, 1954 to Frank and Irene Pukala in Detroit, MI. On October 6 he celebrated his 18th anniversary to Susan. He retired from Chrysler after 36 years as a Maintenance Foreman. In his spare time he enjoyed watching football (he hated the Lions). He enjoyed staying busy whether he was remodeling, building, or fixing something. He was a big Nascar fan and it was always on his bucket list to attend a race, he crossed that off of his bucket list with his wife Susan. What Gary loved most was spending time with his family, playing pinochle, euchre, or chess. He loved spending time with his granddaughters and playing games with them. His family was his life.

Loving husband of Susan; beloved father of Paul (Sarah), Adam (Stephannie) Chyz, Matthew (Shannon) Chyz, and Eric Chyz; cherished grandfather of Kazimiera and Zofia; loving son of Irene; dear brother of Nancy (Gerald) Lazur, Allen (Maggie), and Kathy (Jim) Goode. Predeceased by his father Frank and brother Chet.

Gary is also survived by many extended loved ones and friends.

He will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
