McCORD, ANDREW PAUL

2012-11-04
ANDREW PAUL McCORD

McCORD ANDREW PAUL Age 61, died after a nine-month struggle with cancer Saturday, October 27, 2012 at home in New Hudson. Andy was born in Ann Arbor on June 27, 1951 to Edna (Gae) and Denver McCord. He attended schools in Grand Rapids; Scottsdale, AZ; and Plymouth, graduating from Plymouth High School in 1969. Andy was a gifted mechanic and carpenter and often volunteered to fix cars, lawn mowers, motorcycles and other motorized equipment for friends and neighbors. As a young man, he also was a test driver, and "train-wrecker," driving the heavy equipment needed to right derailed railroad cars. Car racing – first as a mechanic and driver and then as a spectator – was among his life-long passions, as was reading – especially detective mysteries. After many years apart, Andy reconnected with his high school sweetheart, Detroit News Business Editor Joanna Firestone, and the couple married in 1993. The following year, their son Matthew was born, and Andy became a full-time, at-home dad – a role he relished, from driving carpools to supervising homework to arranging doctors appointments. Always a talented cook, he taught himself the art of smoking fish, meat, cheese, nuts and other foods and delighted in delivering these treats to his friends and family. Andy is survived by his wife, Joanna Firestone; son Matthew McCord, a student at Ohio Wesleyan University; mother Gae McCord of Novi; sister Martha (William) Nedzel of Columbia, SC; brothers Patrick (Tish) McCord of Westport, CT and William (Tracy) McCord of Plymouth; aunt and uncle Nancy and Robert Cooper of Plymouth; nephew and niece Casey and Maria McCord of Plymouth; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Janis and Russell Nelson of New Albany, OH; and nephew Russell Nelson of Cordova, TN. Visitation is at 10 a.m. Saturday, November 17 at the First United Methodist Church in South Lyon, followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. Memorial gifts may be made to Active Faith (P.O. Box 188, South Lyon, Mi. 48178 or online at www.activefaithcs.org), a nondenominational food and clothing bank and social services agency serving the South Lyon area.

THEODORE C. "TED"  PFEIFFER

PFEIFFER THEODORE C. "TED" of Brighton, died October 30, 2012. Born July 11, 1948 – the 5th and last son – to Theodore and Elizabeth (Kost) Pfeiffer. Raised on Robson in Detroit with his older brothers: Martin, Albert, Peter, and William. Attended Our Lady Gate of Heaven Grade School, St. Theresa and Detroit Cathedral High Schools graduating in 1967, Schoolcraft College, Michigan State University and Wayne State University graduating in 1972. Ted is survived by his wife, Roberta Owens, the love of his life, two brothers Albert (Sandra), and Peter (Patricia) and many nieces, nephews, great nieces/nephews. Ted retired from the State of Michigan in November 2010 after working for "social services" (DSS/FIA/DHS) mostly in Central Office, Lansing. Many fellow State Employees knew Ted because of his webboard reports of the peregrine falcons in downtown Lansing. While working for the State, it was sometimes Ted's job to say NO or to point out "alternative" ways/points of view. But, that is the way he saw his job. Ted hunted early in life, but stopped after meeting Ms. Ro (one of his loving nicknames for Roberta). For a time, he was active with Boy Scouts. Ted was a member of Moose Lodge 440 Skidway Lake, MI and Howell Elks Lodge 2168. For many years, Ted greatly enjoyed bowling in Monday Night Men's Bowling leagues. There will be no funeral services. Cremation has taken place, and the puff of smoke has dissipated into the atmosphere. In place of a gathering, Ted suggests that you remember him the next time you partake in an "adult" beverage. Suggestions are: Jack Daniels on the rocks or a cold draft beer – two of his favorites. Alternately, a donation could be sent to: Paws With a Cause (4646 South Division, Wayland, MI 49348) or the Capuchin Soup Kitchen (1870 Mt. Elliott St., Detroit, MI 48207-3485) which were two of his favorite charities. Care was entrusted to the Keehn Funeral Home, Brighton.

Florence will always be remembered for her overwhelming generosity and compassionate nature. She derived great joy from simple pleasures, including frequent road trips with her family, vacations in northern Michigan and later in life travelling cross country to visit her children. She was a strong and courageous woman with a gentle and compassionate spirit, and a love of life that inspired all who knew her. She was an avid hockey fan and had a great sense of humor. Florence loved to garden, swim, drive, and travel. She dreamt of being a dancer. She was extremely well read, intelligent and had a natural curiosity and compassion for people of other cultures. She always rooted for the underdog and those less fortunate. Florence was preceded in death by her parents Jan (John) and Marya (Mary) Lukiewski, brothers Theophil Lukiewski and Casimir Lukiewski, and sisters Tillie Wojkowski and Stephanie Samoranski. Florence/Mom, you are greatly missed by all your family, yet you will continue to live on in each of us throughout our remaining days. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date.

PHILIP W. GRIFFIN

GRIFFIN PHILIP W. Age 77, of Bloomfield Hills, MI, passed away, Wednesday, October 31, 2012 due to complications from Leukemia. A family Memorial will be held at a later date when his entire family can be together. When Phil passed his last conversation was perfectly fitting – it involved two of his favorite things – he was reviewing football plays with his ever so cherished son, John. It couldn't have been better scripted. Philip was born August 16, 1936 in Chicago, IL to John and Dorothy Griffin. He graduated from Montana University in 1956. He enjoyed golf, dazzling a crowd with magic tricks, sharing long stories of his football days, Fox News, reading, bridge and spending time with his children and grandchildren. Philip is survived by his four daughters and one son: Regina Griffin, Kathleen Fox and her husband Greg, Laura Ramirez de Arellano and her husband Luis, Susan Griffin, John Griffin, and his six grandchildren – Madeline, Griffin and Stephen Fox, William and Christopher Ramirez de Arellano and Libby Griffin. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 49 years, Helen McCabe Griffin in 2010. Our only peace is they are finally reunited. Thank you Dad for your humor, your athleticism, the gift of gab, your Irish green eyes, and the love of all things scary on Halloween. May the wind always be at your back #15. Until we meet again…
