Louis Turek, born March 5, 1928, passed away on August 18, 2016, at the Wisconsin Veterans’ Home in Chippewa Falls. He was the youngest of seven children born to Joseph and Mary (Strzok) Turek and grew up on the family farm in Gilman, WI. He served in the Army in Korea and was honorably discharge. All five of the Turek brothers served in WWII and/or Korea and returned safely. During his lifetime, Louis resided and worked in Wisconsin, Montana, and Idaho. He enjoyed outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing, polka dancing, and was also a St. Louis Cardinal fan.

He is survived by his sister, Stella Meyers, of Stanley; brother, Leo Turek of Poplar Grove, IL; and many nieces and nephews, several living close by for regular visits to see Uncle Louie.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Emily Bruch; and three brothers: Theodore, Edward, and Clarence Turek.
