FRANK W. MUCHA(1945-2013)

DeKALB – Frank W. Mucha, 68, of DeKalb, Ill., and Kenosha, Wis., finished his life journey on July 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving family as he walked into eternal light.
Frank's career-life was in corporate liability. His passion was in charitable works and donations for his church, community and in service of his beloved country as First Sergeant in the prestigious 101st Airborne Division.
Frank's family and friends describe him as a godly, loving, gentle, intense, honest and a complicated man.
Frank is survived in this life by his steadfast, spunky and devoted bride of 47 years, Charlene; their three faithful daughters and loyal son-in laws, MaryClarice (Gary), Heather (Reg) and Kristen (Kenny); sister, Joanne Waisilewski (Ed); sister-in-law, Vivian Pfeiffer (Richard); and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded to heaven by his parents, several cherished family, friends and beloved pets.
By his request, Frank will be cremated at a private family gathering ceremony. Frank's life that he shared with all he knew will be honored at a life celebration.
The Mucha family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations of self, time or prayer be devoted to: Feed the Children, National Institute of Mental Health, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Disabled American Veterans and Milwaukee Rescue Mission.
The Mucha family never says goodbye, so instead they say "Goodnight, our angel. Sleep well. See you in the morning."
