Gregory Scott
Glubka

May 13, 1963 – September 19, 2022

Gregory Scott Glubka of Oak Creek passed away unexpectedly on Monday, September 19, while mowing his lawn – busy and productive until his candle blew out at the age of 59.

Greg was born May 13, 1963, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Henry Glubka and Lillian Waszak Glubka, their youngest child. He was raised in the family home on Gray’s Lane and attended the Oak Creek public schools. He was a hard-working guy, starting with Maglio’s Produce Company and progressing to running the warehouse at SHARE of Southern Wisconsin for many years. In 2013 he began a new career at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance, where he was a Building Maintenance Technician in the Campus & Event Experiences Department.

He was married for 27 years to Patricia Mikolajczak, and he was the proud and fun-loving Uncle Greg to Christopher, Jennifer, Matthew, Laurie, Amee (to whom he was “Uncle Mongo”), Amanda, Emily and Taylor. He babysat, played his music for them and shared fun with them – forever laying the foundation of countless memories. Greg also enjoyed spending time with Patti’s nieces and nephews Nicole, Kylie, Mike, Mitch, Joe, Al, Jessie, Alexandria, Lily and Ivy.

Greg had a passion for his family and his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Always even-tempered and smiling, his family knew him as a man of few words and much heart. He was always there when anyone needed him, whether family, friends or neighbors-and he was a great host! When Greg liked something, it was with deep enthusiasm, from favorite chefs (like Emeril) to cooking for friends and family, sharing the music of his all-time favorite singer Bob Seger or his love of Elmo. And he seldom swayed from his favorites.

Greg was preceded in death by his parents and brother Timothy. He is survived by his former wife Patti; Uncle Ed Glubka of Fayetteville, Georgia; sisters Kathryn (James) Shilling of Onalaska and Marybeth (Rod) Jordan of Toronto, Ontario; brothers Allen (Claudette) Glubka of Seattle; and Robert (Donna) Glubka of Stuart, Florida. Greg is also survived by his former parents-in-law Jerry and Ellen Mikolajczak of Franklin, and former sisters- and brothers-in-law Ann (Ken) Oberdorf of Glendale, Arizona; Steve (Kerrie Skrzypczak) Mikolajczak of South Milwaukee; Dan Mikolajczak of South Milwaukee; Mary (Brett) Stallman of Sussex; and Jennifer Mikolajczak of Cudahy. He is further survived by nieces & nephews, their spouses, great-nieces & nephews, cousins, many friends, neighbors and co­workers.

A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the FUNERAL HOME from 2-4pm with a Time of Sharing at 3pm.

Gone too soon. May he ride in peace.

The family has suggested Memorials to the Hunger Task Force Farm of Franklin, Wisconsin, {hungertaskforce.org) which grows a wide variety of crops to ensure hungry families have access to fresh produce rarely found on food pantry shelves, or the charity of your choice.

    My sincerest condolences to all the family members and friends of Greg. I will always remember the family picnics at your folks house in the summer. I know I was a little kid back then, but I will never forget how kind you were to me to let me hang around with you and for the rides on the back of your motorcycle around the property. You smile will be forever in my memory and I hope you are looking down lovingly on everyone. Taken too soon, but in everyone’s heart forever!
