Obituary of Susan E Krystopik
Susan Elaine Krystopik, 67, passed away on October 18, 2020 with her three children by her side.
Susan was born on February 14, 1953 in Newark, New Jersey. She was raised in South Plainfield, New Jersey and attended South Plainfield High School. She met and married the love of her life, Kenneth Louis Krystopik, Sr. The two raised their family in South Plainfield.

In addition to raising three children and being President of KLK Trucking Company, Susan served as a member of the South Plainfield Board of Adjustment, the PTA, and she was president of the New Jersey Motor Truck Association.
Friends and family remember her love for photography, travel, and shopping but most of all her companionship. Her bright smile, boastful personality, and undying spirit for adventure will forever endure. Always opening her home to family and friends, you could often find her entertaining in her backyard oasis or reading a book on her kindle.

Krystopik and his wife Carly; her daughter Leslie Pio Costa; her father Robert Sloboda and his wife Marlene; her brothers Robert Sloboda Jr. and his wife Valerie, Thomas Sloboda; her sisters Lisa Barone and her husband Michael, Michele Edgin; her sisters-in-law Sandra Moss and her husband Viv, Diane Musmanno; her brother-in-law Norman Krystopik; her grandchildren Carmen Pio Costa Jr., Kenneth Louis Krystopik III, Annabelle Pio Costa and Ewan Krystopik.
