Bernard Radyk

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

On the 3rd of October, 2023 Bernard Radyk entered into his eternal life to dwell in the presence of Jesus Christ. The only redeemer he loved with all his might, heart, mind and soul. Bernard was born on the 25th of March, 1965 in Bielsk Podlaski, Poland, son of Maria Radyk – Hajdukowicz and Czeslaw Radyk. It is in Poland that Bernard accepted Jesus as his Savior and risked his life and endured prosecution numerous times to spread the Gospel.

Bernard arrived in his early 20’s to the United States of America in the most heroic, dangerous and courageous journey of his life. It is in the U.S. that he married his first wife Beata Radyk until he became a widower after 28 years. Together they had one son Benjamin Radyk which he loved dearly. At a very young age he became the Pastor of the Polish Baptist Church in New Britain, Connecticut where he was the spiritual cornerstone that helped rebuild the church to what it is today.

With a heart of gold to his friends and everyone he knew, he dedicated his whole life to teaching the word of God to countless friends, costumers and strangers. This he did also as the sole founder of Triple B Automotive, where he enjoyed the company of his son working with him as well. Bernard worked tirelessly at his business until he became sick. Bernard’s passion to spread the gospel and open everyone’s eyes to the truth to what is happening today was insurmountable. Everyone that stepped into the garage would know that he is a Christian and would most probably leave with a Christian track in hand. His biggest wish is for all his friends, family and customer that are not saved yet, to truly, accept Jesus as their savior and make it to heaven.

He is loved by many and highly respected as the man of God that he was. Bernard is and will be known as a man that did not compromise in any shape or form when it came to the true word of God. His integrity was impeccable, he was a man of his word and everything he did was with dedication and excellence. His dry humor was like no other. He had a keen sense of adventure and zest for learning and reading never seized. Bernard was an avid hiker and diver where he not only explored countless forests but the depths of the sea as well. With his extraordinary personality that would draw a listener in, he touched many lives with an admirable generosity. He was the best mechanic imaginable and there wasn’t a car he could not fix. His knowledge was vast in all areas not only his profound understanding of the KJV bible but history, all religions, geography, technology and nature. If he could not find something he needed he would build it, engineer it or weld it but he would fix the problem one way or the other.

In the last years of his life he married his second wife, Zullie Radyk and welcomed his step-children, Sienna & William into his heart and loved them as his own. With his new family he weaved many plans and dreams until the early morning of that last faithful day when he became sick. He loved to bond with the children and loved how his step-daugther would give him facials and sneak in his closet to see what she could wear to school, he loved having a step-daugher for the first time. At the same time he loved to fish with William, who would follow Bernard around like a puppy. He was a dedicated husband and a blessing, love to spend quality time together at home, at the garage, taking small trips and in the garden where him and his wife shared their love for flowers and nature.

He will be deeply deeply missed by his mother, surviving wife, son, step-daughter, step-son, family in Poland and so many friends.

The memorial service to honor Bernard’s life will be held at Meriden Hills Baptist Church, 139 Charles Street, Meriden, CT 06450, on Saturday the 21st of October, 2023 from 9am to 10.30am.

In lieu of flowers a donation to the “GoHonduras” Mission will be highly appreciated. The “GoHonduras” mission is non-profit in the care Meriden Hills Baptist Church.
