    My wife Lynda and I first met Dr. Pietruska in 1970, when we moved from Millington to Flint. He was always caring and considerate and explained things in an easily understood manner. After he performed my tail-bone surgery he kidded me that I could now do the “tail-bone shuffle”…not to be confused with the “hemorrhoid waltz”!…what a great sense of humor he had! He was our family doctor until his retirement when Dr. Benedict took over. We know he loved his horses…almost as much as his patients. We will surely miss him! We wish God’s blessings to you Mrs. P. and your daughter.

    “Doctor Bill”
    This is what this fine man was known as in my family. Doctor Bill was of the very best character a man can be. He was a kind man to me and all of my family. He was also a personal friend to my family. I was fortunate to have visited him and his family at his horse farm on several occasions throughout my youth. At age 5, he gave me my first ride ever on the back of one of his horses. I recall him lifting me up off of my feet and placing me on the back of the horse, Candy, and instructing me to grasp the horse’s mane with both of my hands. I’ve never forgotten that moment in my life, and have carried that memory with me. I recall being nose to nose with his Great Dane, Whiskey. He had many animals in his household. I recall the sense of warmth there. After my own father, Claude had passed, he became my surrogate father in my times of need for one. My best wishes, to Irene. You and your dad are in my thoughts.
