ANDREW THOMAS RAJKOVICH ANDREW THOMAS RAJKOVICH

RAJKOVICH, ANDREW THOMAS Age 83, passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness on August 17, 2014. He was a thirty-year resident of South Lyon, prior to relocating to Ann Arbor twenty-seven years ago with his beloved wife, Sydney. He was born on April 20, 1931 in Ironwood, Michigan to Andrew and Mary (Ticak) Rajkovich and had two brothers and seven sisters. He served on the U.S.S. Midway during the Korean War and met Sydney while stationed in Chicago. They were united in marriage in 1953 and resided in Ironwood, Traverse City and East Lansing before settling down in South Lyon. The G.I. Bill allowed Andrew to attend Northwestern Michigan College, Michigan State University and the University of Michigan where he received various degrees including a Master of Arts in Teaching. He taught Junior High School in South Lyon before transferring to Ann Arbor's Huron High School where he taught American History, Government and the Humanities for over 30 years. Andy was extremely civic-minded and served on the South Lyon Planning Commission, School Board, City Council and was Mayor from 1973-1975. He was also a member of the Jaycee's and Kiwanis Club, where he also served as President. He was an active member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church and Knights of Columbus. He was instrumental in establishing the South Lyon Historical Society where he also served as President. His love for history led to his preservation efforts regarding the Witches Hat Depot, moving it to its current location and for years worked on renovating it to its current state, along with the caboose and freight house. Although Alzheimer's disease took many things from Andy over the past few years, he never lost his humanity and his love, compassion, and appreciation of others. Sydney preceded him in death in February 2012. He is survived by his loving children Daniel (Anita) Rajkovich of South Lyon and Kathleen Towler of Ann Arbor, grandchildren, Chad Clements, Jason and Marissa Houston and Kaitlyn Towler, great-grandson, Talan Birnbaum, and his sisters Ann Valle and Catherine Rajkovich. Visitation will be held Friday, August 29 at 10 AM followed by a funeral mass at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 2250 East Stadium Boulevard, Ann Arbor.
