Eddie 
Mecikalski

Eddie Mecikalski. Tuesday, January 14th, 2014, age 81. Husband of Mary Beth (nee Lauer). Father of Pamela (Brad) Hays, Paula (Dan) Brzezinski, Amy Bauernschmidt, and Douglas (Nikki) Bauernschmidt. Grandfather of Nick, Liz, John, Addy, Gabby, and Jack. Brother of Eugene (Pam), Virginia, Francis Tripp, and the late Bobby. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Private Services were held. Memorials, if desired, may be made to the Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens in Eddie’s name – 9400 Boerner Dr., Hales Corners, WI 53130.

Eddie was a man who lived on his own terms. He is no longer in pain, but is at peace. He was a man of contradictions — a big man; not in stature, but in personality — a man who liked to grumble, but loved to love. He deeply loved his family as we deeply loved him. We are crying, but we are also smiling as we remember our Eddie.

I most certainly raise a glass to Eddie, in honor of his legacy, his beautiful daughter, my dear friend Pam. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends who will miss this man and treasure the memories of his soul within their spirits. God grant you all peace. Love, Prudy Canfield

Pam Hays

Thank you for the heart inspired words. Dad loved you and Michael and enjoyed the times spent together.

He loved you two and often talked about the San Diego trip. I think he loved the fish tacos as much as I did.

Eddie was one of those people in life that you call “a memorable character.” The
original lovable curmudgeon and more darn fun at a party. He would give you the
shirt off his back and his last drop of vodka (well maybe….!) if you needed
it. Supremely talented, smart and funny, Eddie was also the most loving father,
grandpa, husband, brother and friend you could ask for! We were privileged to
spend many fun times made infinitely more enjoyable by his presence. One of my
all time favorite memories is attending the 1998 Super Bowl in San Diego with
him. Since everyone else we were with had gone to see the Pack win in New Orleans
the year before, Eddie and I were the chosen ones when we only could score two
tickets for the big game. Well, we did it up right — before, during and after
the game. We sat with a whole section of Bronco fans and Eddie became their best
friend, so much so, they were consoling us when the Packers lost and buying us
countless beers. That was a great few days spent with family and friends,
including Eddie’s brother, Bobby. We will never forget it! We also were
privileged to host Eddie’s 70th birthday party at our lake house and once again,
Eddie made it probably the best party we’ve ever had. Great food, cigars, vodka,
friends, family and laughter, it was an Eddie kind of day! One of the best
legacies someone can leave besides family, is the ability to make you smile
every time you think of him – this is Eddie! Mary Beth and family, I am so sorry for your loss but so grateful to have known him and call him a friend. We are
always here for you for a hug or to share a laugh and fond memories…here’s to
Eddie, there were none better! Much love to all xoxoxo

Eddie was a hoot! Always enjoyed having a beer with him. I can still hear him saying, “This is no way to run a railroad,” as we were stuck in a traffic jam trying to get him and Mary close to Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego for the Super Bowl in 1998. You will be missed, Eddie!

We all loved Eddie very much. I am surprised by how much my kids, Eddie’s grandkids miss him. I can only hope that our stories of Grandpa will create memories for Jackson as he will never get to know the man he called papa.
