Michael Allen
Wielichowski

On June 2nd, Michael Allen Wielichowski, 67, passed into eternal life after battling idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis for the last few years. He was a devout Catholic, dedicated husband, father, grandfather, Godfather, dear family member, and friend to many. He loved a good meal, a good beer, a shot of Jack Daniels, Notre Dame Football, the Packers, Brewers, and Wisconsin athletics, as well as classical and jazz music, traveling, and going to the theater. In his last years, he packed in as much fun and family time as his body would allow, in addition to watching as many sporting events that most people don’t even see in a lifetime from the comfort of home. His most joyous times were traveling with his wife, Anne, having father/daughter lunches with Katie, and watching his grandson Christian play ball. May his generous, loving, and kind spirit live on in all of us.

He is survived by his wife, Anne Thompson Wielichowski (nee Mullins), daughter Katie Wielichowski, step-daughter Rachel (Chris) Young, step-son Christopher Thompson, former spouse and mother of his daughter Ellen (Chris) Bednarski, grandson Christian Wielichowski, sisters Theresa (the late Donald) Wendlick, Cyndi (the late George) Muedini, brother Henry (the late Carol) Wielichowski, 9 nieces, 2 nephews, many cousins, great-nieces, and great-nephews. Michael is preceded in death by his father, Henry Wielichowski, mother Alice (Kubacki) Wielichowski, niece and Goddaughter Nada Muedini, and grandparents.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held in his honor on June 17th, at 11:00 AM, at Nativity of the Lord Catholic Church in Cudahy with a gathering at the Brass Monkey Pub and Grill in Milwaukee immediately after. There will be no visitation and a private burial of his ashes will be held at Holy Sepuchler Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, http://www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org/ways-to-give/donate-now, The Military Order of Purple Heart http://purpleheartfoundation.org/donate/ Nativity of the Lord Catholic Church, or St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, https://www.stjude.org/give.html . These were causes near and dear to Mike’s heart.

Friends forever. Softball, golf, party time. Mike always had a smile no matter what the situation happened to be. I will miss him as everyone who met him will.

Uncle Michael- I will miss you dearly! I have so many fun memories of my youth that include you since I spent so much time with you guys when Katie was little! You were a kind, humble man who also influenced my adult life with some great advice when I needed it and a big bear hug to go along with it! Love you!
