George Blazek

April 10, 1927 — October 31, 2014

George W. Blazek, age 87, passed away on Friday, October 31, 2014. He was born on April 10, 1927, in the Town of Grand Chute to the late Frank Sr. and Theresa Blazek, and he resided in Outagamie County his whole life. George worked for many years at the family farm before retiring from Thilmany Paper Company, after fifteen years. He married Dorothy J. Boyer on July 16, 1955, in Appleton, and they spent 59 wonderful years together. George enjoyed spending time outdoors, especially when he was taking care of his yard and flowers, as well as when he'd feed his birds and ducks. What he loved most of all though was spending time with his family. George treasured the time he was able to spend at his grandchildren's sporting events and visiting with his children and friends.

George is survived by his wife, Dorothy Blazek; children, Jane (Bill) Ulman, Judy (Gary) Derks, Russell (Suzanne) Blazek, and Linda (Gordon) Sloan; grandchildren, Becky (Ryan) Falke, Greg (Sarah) Ulman, Laura (fiancé Levi Fischer) Derks, Kathy Derks, Ryan Sloan, Cora Sloan, and Sadie Schlafer; great-grandchildren, Caden Vaughn, Emilee Falke, and Ruth Ulman ; sister-in-law, Jeanice Hartfiel; brother-in-law, Kenneth Boyer; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

George was preceded in death by his brothers, Frank (Beatrice) Blazek, Joseph (Lorraine) Blazek, and Wenzel (Pearl) Blazek; twin sister, Gertrude (Elber) Hermes; sisters, Theresa (John) Van Stippen, Mary (Arthur) Zimmerman, Elizabeth (Frank) Hogan, and Ann (Wilmer) Feistel; parents-in-law, Esther and Lothar Boyer; sisters-in-law, Irene Boyer and Laverne (Harold) Gauerke; brothers-in-law, Llewellyn (Gertrude) Boyer and Harvey Hartfiel; and nieces and nephews.

A time of visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, at the WICHMANN FUNERAL HOME, 537 N. Superior Street, Appleton.
