Olgierd John Musik, 80, passed away on September 7 at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. He was born in Warsaw, Poland on February 18, 1938 to parents John Musik and Zofia Mazanska. Olgierd grew up in Wroclaw, Poland and immigrated to the United States in 1959. He lived in Hackensack, New Jersey where he completed studies to become a certified mechanic for the Federal Aviation Administration. Soon after, he moved to Houston, Texas where he pursued a degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Houston. He worked for Johnston Schlumberger in the oil fields and on oilrigs off of the Gulf of Houston. After moving to Delaware, he worked for Hewlett Packard, W.L. Gore, and DuPont. He retired from DuPont in 2008 as a Senior Project Engineer. He enjoyed designing and supervising the building of diverse machines as well as writing the manuals for the operation of such machines. His work took him to Germany and frequent travels within the United States. After retirement, he enjoyed traveling with his family throughout the United States and returned several times to Poland. He frequently accompanied his wife while she directed study abroad trips for the University of Delaware. These travels took him to Argentina, Chile, Easter Island, Peru, Spain and Costa Rica. Besides reading, working in the garden, and building whatever needed to be built around the house, he liked watching movies with his grandchildren the most.
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Krystyna Pakies Musik, his two daughters Ania Meese, and her husband Erik, and Basia Moltchanov, and her husband Eugene Simonavage, his grandchildren Maxim, Aleksandra, Mitch and Ava, his brother Mitchell Meller and sister Halina Haussmann, and five nieces and nephews.
