He always enjoyed life most when he was with his family or working with his hands. He admired his children and loved us all so deeply, that we always knew we were safe and taken care of. Our marriage of over 70 ½ years was a very special one." PRASSER-KLECZKA BAY VIEW CHAPEL 3275 S. Howell Ave. 414-483-2322 www.pkfuneralhomes.com
