Robert “Bob” John Wiczek, Age 58 of Elk River MN, devoted father, grandfather, brother and friend to many, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday July 19, 2011.
Bob was born on April 22, 1953 to Lucille and John Wiczek in International Falls, MN. Bob was a Marine with the United States Marine Corps and later rose to the ranks of Journeyman with the Iron Workers Local 512. For the past 25 years Bob has worked for Linco Companies as an Iron Worker, Estimator and Project Manager which ultimately led to his most prized position the “C.E.P.”
Bob enjoyed spending time at the cabin with his family, friends and beloved lab Daisy. He was a skilled and avid deer hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman, especially at “the shack” where “if it had four legs and was brown, it was down.”
