Adam John Pawlicki was born on August 22, 1918, in Lublin, WI, the son of Leo and Katherine (Pollack) Pawlicki. He was raised on the family farm and received his education in the Lublin area. As a young man, he worked in the CCC Camp in the Crivitz/Laona area. His fondest memory of his time spent there was sitting on the sidelines, watching a 1936 Green Bay Packer football game. He greatly enjoyed the yearly CCC Camp reunions. Adam went on to work in road construction at various sites around the state of Wisconsin. He spoke fondly and with great pride about working on the Miller Dam project near Gilman, WI. He retired from road construction in 1967.

He was united in marriage to Mary A. Slomka on November 15, 1958, at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lublin. The couple owned and operated a dairy farm in Lublin until their retirement in 1980. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Queen of Peace Council #4634, and a longtime member of the St. Stanislaus Church Council and cemetery committee.

He is survived by one daughter, Sallie (Larry) Leopold of Park Falls, WI; two grandchildren: Angela and John Leopold; one sister, Minnie (Leonard) Nichols of Gilman; one brother, Louis Pawlicki of Chippewa Falls; several nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Mary, on May 27, 2007; two brothers: Vincent, his identical twin who was killed in the service of his country during WWII, and Casey; and one sister, Leona Wisniewski.

Memorial may be made to Flambeau Home Health and Hospice in Phillips, WI or to St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, member of the Ss. Peter and Paul Church cluster in Gilman, WI.
