John Majewski


1946 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
Encircled in the love of his wife and children, John Leslie Majewski, passed away to eternal life on Dec. 11, 2011, after surrendering to a sudden illness.

On Sept. 7, 1946, John was born to John and Stella (Dziewiontkowski) Majewski. He was raised on a small dairy farm in the Armstrong Creek area and attended grammar school at St. Joan of Arc. He graduated from Goodman-Armstrong High School in 1964 and moved to Antigo, Wis., to attend the Northwestern Technical College to study accounting. There he met and fell in love with Margaret (Peggy) Callahan and his future sons, Bob and George. John and Peggy were married in Eagle River on July 21, 1967. Together they had a daughter, Michelle, and another son, Darrell. John and his family relocated to Green Bay, where John attended UW-GB to earn his bachelors of science in accounting and later became a Certified Public Accountant. He was a long standing parish and council member of Annunciation Catholic Church.

John worked for many years at Magna Graphics Incorporated as their corporate controller. He later worked in the same capacity for Luv-It Creamery until he accepted the general manager position with Potawatomi Bingo & Casino in Carter, Wis. He retired from his professional career as a university system auditor at UW-GB in December 2008.

John was an avid outdoorsman and was a very talented craftsman. He spent most of his time walking, hunting, logging, and enjoying the beauty of nature on his property. When he wasn't hunting, planning for hunting season, or dreaming of hunting, John spent time working on his true "labor of love' - his log cabin. He and Peggy recently prepared their log cabin to be their permanent home and it is pure evidence of his skilled and gifted hands. His keen eye for perfection in the crafting of his unique home is a true reflection of his essence.

John had a flair for captivating and entertaining many of us with his dynamic stories and lively tales. His way of combining the simple truth of the story with a hint of exaggeration often ended in an eruption of laughter or the uncertain wonder of belief. He was frequently known to express the lighter side of life with his silliness and was a favorite among his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. His quick wit and humor rarely allowed him to miss an opportunity to tell or play a joke. The countless unsuspecting recipients of his good-natured pranks will forever chuckle at the memories of such fun.

John was extremely tenderhearted and very loving. Tucked in his lap, snuggled in close or huddled around was often where his grandchildren would be found. From their entire hearts, he was very much-loved by each and every one of them.

John was a reliable source for words of wisdom, positive encouragement, sage advice, and eternal support. He never turned away from those seeking his assistance and remained a steadfast confidant. His endless generosity and genuine compassion for others will forever be missed.

John is survived by his wife, Peggy; three sons, Robert (Laurie) Majewski, Broomfield, Colo.; George (Sherrie) Majewski, Elkhorn, Wis.; and Darrell Majewski, Chicago, Ill.; his daughter, Michelle (Paul) McLellan, La Crescent, Minn.; his grandchildren, Tim (Liane) Daniels, Cheri (Chris) Rittierodt, Joey Majewski, Colorado; Blake, Austin, and Kyle Majewski, Wisconsin; Callahan and Wil McLellan, Minnesota; his great-grandchildren, Sean and Arianna Rittierodt, Mishale Scott, Andrew and Matthew Morency and Brianna, Kaitlin and Dillan Daniels, Colorado.

He is survived by his mother, Stella Majewski; sister, Barbara Corrigan; brothers, Eugene (Marlene) Kieta, Joe (Renee) Majewski, and Dennis (Sonya) Majewski; sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, and many dear friends.

He is preceded in eternal life by his father, John Majewski; and his brother, Walter Kieta.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, Armstrong Creek, Wis. Vigil Service will begin at 7 p.m. The funeral celebration of John's life will be held on Thursday, Dec. 15, with a visitation from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at 11 a.m. at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church Armstrong Creek, Wis.
