Richard Joseph  Saliwanchik
Richard Joseph Saliwanchik, age 89, of The Villages Florida passed away peacefully on Sunday October 13, 2019. He lived with honor and a strong sense of duty, and was much loved by his family.

Richard was born in LaPorte Indiana. While at LaPorte High School, he was a star left-handed curveball baseball pitcher, winning many accolades and receiving contract offers from the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox. During the Korean War, he served in the US Army, stationed in Japan. After the Army, he met his future wife Irene in LaPorte. They were married on Thanksgiving Day in 1954. Their marriage lasted 60 years until Irene's passing in 2015. After working for two years, Richard went to Purdue University, continued to pitch on their baseball team, and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 1960.

Richard raised his family while living mainly in Indiana and Ohio, before retiring to Florida.

He was predeceased by his wife, Irene Supanik Saliwanchik; sister Dorothy Enman and brother Roman Saliwanchik.

He is survived by his children, Alan Saliwanchik (Marilynne) of Dayton Ohio and Ann Chapman (John) of Delray Beach Florida and brothers Rudy Saliwanchik and John Saliwanchik.
