Francis A. Wilczewski

December 2, 1937 ~ January 12, 2023 (age 85) 85 Years Old


Francis A. Wilczewski, 85, of East Troy, Wisconsin passed away on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at Vintage on the Ponds Assisted Living in Delavan.

Fran was born on December 2, 1937 in Milwaukee the son of Frank and Gertrude (Mecikalski) Wilczewski. He grew up in the Milwaukee area and graduated from St. Thomas More High School in Milwaukee. Fran worked as an Electrician for the majority of his working career retiring in the 1990s. Fran was passionate about vehicles. He collected and restored quite a few cars over the years and was particularly fond of Fords, Cadillacs and the Chevrolet Suburban. He also attended many swap meets over the years and enjoyed that hobby very much. Fran was a bit of a curmudgeon, but under his prickly exterior was a kind and helpful man who would go out of his way to help a friend or neighbor in need. Fran will be missed by those he leaves behind.

He is survived by his close friends, Susan and Dennis Leffelman of East Troy, Wisconsin and John and Barb Socha of Muskego, Wisconsin.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Francis will be laid to rest next to his parents in Holy Cross Cemetery of Milwaukee during a private service.
