I NJOY WORKING WITH U @ THE COUNTY WILL MISS YOUR SMILE.
I have been truly blessed to have worked 30 years with such a wonderful person. Larry was like a second father to me. He was kind hearted, thoughtful, caring, funny and was just a joy to be around every day. He truly will be missed!! May he rest in peace.
To the family of Larry Wyka: May you know that you have another angel in heaven to watch over all of you. Larry was dear to the hearts of all of us at the County Treasurer's Office. Larry was our beacon of light. He always kept calm and diffused stressful situations. He has been missed by us since his retirement. What a treasure he has been for anyone who knew him.
Please accept my deepest condolences. I will always appreciate the help, support and humor larry provided me throughout his time at the Wayne County treasurer's Office

Larry was truly a good friend he would help anyone that needed help. I am truly going to miss him.
My deepest sympathy to the family. My first day of work @ WCT Larry Wyka was having a surprise bday party @ Old Sheliegh across the street I remember eveone in the office was going. Me, new employee, didn't go but thru the years I got to know Larry as a great man, friend. His office door was always open to sit on his couch to vent, laugh or just to take a quick breath! Office parties were the best, Holiday time! Besides our Treasurer, Mr Wojtowicz, Larry was the "pillar" in our office. I am very proud to have worked w/him & take that extra breath in his office during our stressful season! Love You Larry!
