Matthew B. Luczynski, 28

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Matthew B. Luczynski, 28, of West Shaft Road died Friday, Nov. 30, 2012 at his home. Born in North Adams on Aug. 17, 1984, a son of Lawrence Luczynski of Chatham and Patricia Birkland Luczynski Nuvallie of North Adams, he was raised in Stamford, Vt., and attended Stamford School. He graduated with the class of 2002 from Drury High School, where he was an accomplished athlete on the varsity baseball and soccer teams. He attended Springfield College and was pursuing a degree in environmental science at University of Massachusetts at Boston. Mr. Luczynski was employed as a carpenter for 10 years with his father's family business Timberline Builders of Chatham, and currently by SLC Contractors in Clarksburg. He loved his friends and family, his dogs Alfie and Sammy, the outdoors, riding snowmobiles, four-wheelers, the ocean, and playing his guitar. One of his many passions was being a professional snow-cross racer with the former Rock Maple Racing Circuit of Wilmington, Vt. Being a member along with his dad, brother Chad, and the rest of "Team 99" was a very important part of his life growing up. One of his proudest race career moments came at Mount Snow in Vermont, where he won the bronze medal in the 2001-o2 X-Games Hillcross event against nationwide competition at age 16. His charm and magnetic personality made him beloved by all that knew him. Besides his mother and stepfather, Michael Nuvallie, and his father and stepmother, Kathy Wysocki Berti, he leaves his sister, Terese Luczynski of Bennington, Vt.; his brother, Chad Luczynski of Springfield; paternal grandparents, Anthony and Jacqueline Morehouse Luczynski of North Adams; a nephew, Brody Smith, and aunts, uncles and cousins. His maternal grandparents, Elaine Bushee Birkland and Bernard Birkland are deceased. FUNERAL NOTICE — A Liturgy of Christian Burial to celebrate the life of Mr. Luczynski will take place Saturday, Dec. 8, at 11 from St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, North Adams. Calling hours will be Saturday morning from 8:30 to 10:30 at Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, West Chapels, 521 West Main St., North Adams. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Courage for Colten Fund.
