Michael A. Sajdak Notice
Sajdak, Michael A. Born May 16, 1930 and called home August 19, 2013, at the age of 83. He is preceded in death by parents Michael and Catherine, daughters Ruth Ann, Ann Marie and brothers Edward and Stanley. He leaves behind his beloved wife Jo of 56 years, son Allan (Carol) Sajdak, daughter Kathryn (Mark) Heimerl, daughter Annette Sajdak, grandsons Gregory, Daniel, Michael, sister Eleanor, long time friends Leon Zalewski and Shirley Ramazini. Michael graduated from Don Bosco High School and proud member of the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict serving in New Foundland. Michael was the founder of Michael's Footwear in Hales Corners, where he started his business in 1959 along with his wife Josephine. He learned his craft of selling and shoe repair from his father, also named Michael. Michael always wanted to be a farmer, and due to a fire at his residence, he moved his family to a "backache" acres farm in New Berlin. With the help of family and friends, and you know who you are, he fixed up his homestead while working 9 to 9 at the store. He believed in organic farming from vegetables to his livestock. The only thing his animals had were sunshine, water, grass, and a salt lick. People would ask to be called for his still warm, farm fresh eggs. As a thank you to friends and family for all the work, Mike would often have cookouts with pig or lamb roasts, including bonfires and hay rides. To this day, people have fond memories of the farm, and his family thanks you for this. Twenty years ago, Mike suffered a stroke. The only reason he made it this long, was because of his angelic, loving, caring wife and his two daughters Kathy and Annette. His family would like to deeply thank the Froedtert MICU nurses and doctors, and Gerald Parent MD. Also with much love, we thank the families of Nick, Joe, Russ, Leon, John, Ted, Bill, Steve, Stan, Ed, Mike, Arlene, Janice and the 49ers Club. Also, thank you Aunt Shirley. Dad, maybe you were here so long, because God was afraid you would put Him to work. Ruthy, Ann Marie and Oscar, Daddys home. We love you Pa.
