I fondly remember special times at the Mlecka’s home. We often congregated for some of our Girl Scout meetings & activities. It was always interesting to have Mr Mlecka share with us one of his new inventions. Many happy times & memories. Prayers for all of the family.

“Uncle Louis” was adored by all of us and we all have special memories of the times we shared. His humor and wit was endearing always and we all respected him for his wisdom which often left us pondering the important things in life. He was a mentor to us, a proud patriot that loved our country and dedicated family man which we always will remember, admire and love. Uncle Louis, Fair Winds and Following Seas “Chief”, we will never forget you.

I have many fond memories of time spent with the Mlecka family. My sincere condolences are sent to the family and in particular, Mrs. Mlecka who spent so much time with the Girl Scouts and entertaining Luanne’s friends. My parents are deceased but they enjoyed their friendship with the Mlecka’s as well.
