ENFIELD – Richard A. Matyskiela, 90, entered into eternal rest on Monday, July 27, 2020 at Armbrook Village. Born in Suffield, son of Francis and Constance (Tofilska) Matyskiela, he grew up in Suffield and was a graduate of Suffield High School. Richard received his Associate Degree in Business and was an accountant for over twenty-five years for the former Connecticut National Bank, retiring in 1988. He was a Korean army veteran. He lived most of his life in Enfield, moving there in 1957, and was a communicant of St. Adalbert Church. He moved to Agawam, MA six years ago. He was also a former member of the Enfield Lodge of Elks #2222, Grey’s Athletic Club and enjoyed gardening, the results of which he shared with neighbors, and walking. Richard also was a member of area bowling leagues. He will be fondly remembered by family and neighbors on O'Hear Avenue for his use of the word "jeepers" and his love of grilling, even in snowstorms. Richard's most wonderful trait was his genuine kindness which he showed to his family, friends, neighbors and strangers alike. His wife, Elvia "Elly" (Ramos) Matyskiela died in 2006. He leaves three daughters, Katherine P. Matyskiela of Wake Forest, NC, Lorraine "Lori" J. and her husband, Mark Mission of West Springfield and their children, Stephanie and her husband William Rafferty of Beverly, MA, and Nicholas Mission of West Springfield, and Stephanie and William’s children, Mark and Madison Rafferty, Elizabeth K. and her husband, Glenn Stevenson and their children, Carmen and Kaden Stevenson all of Raleigh, NC, a brother, Henry Matyskiela of Carmel, ME, two sisters, Frances Rumore of Suffield, Constance Haskell of Springfield, and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by two sisters, Edna Palmer and Leokadya Matyskiela. Relatives and friends are invited to a Funeral Mass on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 10 am at St. Adalbert’s Church, 90 Alden Avenue, followed by burial in St. Adalbert Cemetery. Masks and social distancing must be maintained. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that in Richard’s name, acts of kindness be shown to one another. For online condolences please visit

Rich & Elly were the best aunt and uncle and Godparents a niece could hope to have. My favorite memory of you is, when you picked your daughters up at our house, you always brought Butter Rum Lifesavers for us. Your thoughtfulness of even the little things are what made you so great and so beloved by me. I'm sorry you're gone, but I take heart that you're with Aunt Elly now. I love you. Rest in Peace.
Your niece,
