“Even when the surface is calm, the water may be turbulent just beneath.”

Braden Alois Wleczyk, 15, of Victoria Texas passed away September 12th 2018. He was born on June 24th 2003, the son of Tina and Darren Wleczyk. He is survived by his parents, Darren & Tina Wleczyk; his younger brother, Caleb Wleczyk; his older sister, Shelby Upton; His “MeMe” & “PawPaw”, Barbara & Butch Stolarsky; his “Nana” & “Pops”, Lorinda & Duane Beal; his “Pawdaddy”, Chuck Wleczyk & Rita Cortez; his “Great-Granny B”, Nancy Beal; his Aunt Gretchen & Uncle Brad Wleczyk, along with his cousins – Emma, Will, Addy & Elly Wleczyk; his Aunt Lori & Uncle Michael Gonzales, along with his cousins – Michael, Jr., Justin, & Leann Gonzales. He is also survived by countless extended family and friends that love him very much. Braden was an amazing young man. He spent his 15 years of life inspiring others. He was a great role model to his younger brother, Caleb and he was an excellent student, a great athlete, and a very likeable young man. With his seemingly endless positive traits, he had the potential to be anything. He was an accomplished marksman, enjoyed hunting with his Dad (as long as he could get in the blind, shoot it, clean it, and have it tagged and in the cooler in 30 minutes or less). He loved to fish, was a student of life, enjoyed cross country road trips with the family, and working out. He was dedicated to clean eating, meal prepping and setting personal goals. It was part of who he was, self-motivated to be the best he could be. His passions also included Legos and “DC and Marvel” comics. Although he was only in the 10th grade he was already taking college courses. He loved to read, and as many of his teachers have said, “he has read every book in the library.” His drive for success was impressive to all. His recent pride was the purchase of his new truck. He was a self-proclaimed good driver (if you consider STOP signs a suggestion)!! Braden had a magnetic personality that warmed a room. Although he occasionally could be the typical “little brother”, Shelby considered him a true gift. If you were his family or friend, he would give you anything (except the front seat to Caleb!) The Wleczyk’s never saw a body of water they couldn’t fish, land they couldn’t hunt, grounds they wouldn’t camp, a game they wouldn’t play or a face they didn’t welcome. Braden took part in each adventure and seemed to embrace all of life’s gifts and challenges. The world was given the privilege of his life for 15 years and what a true privilege it was. “Imagine a world where everybody is successful. No lessons would be learned and stories are less exciting. Failure is an opportunity to become better at what you attempt and to evolve as a person.” -Braden W. Although we are grieving his loss please share with us in celebrating his life. A Memorial service will be held Monday September 17th 2018 at 2pm at Parkway Church in Victoria. In lieu of flowers, save your money for a new shot gun – he would have wanted that. OR Send donations in Braden Wleczyk’s name to the Friends of Victoria Public Library at 302 N. Main St Victoria, TX 77901- he would have liked that too.

I had the privilege of being Braden’s 8th grade Reading teacher, and I loved every minute of it. He was quiet, with a sharp sense of humor, and he loved to read. There are students that leave an indelible mark on a teacher’s heart, and Braden was one of them. He introduced me to one of my favorite book series, and even checked a couple of the books out from under me so he could make sure to read them first! I am heartbroken for the loss of a wonderful young man, and I send my love and prayers to his family and friends. God bless and be with you all.

Braden was one of the greatest people I have ever met. He never failed to make me laugh and never failed to impress me with his thoughtfulness. When my younger brother had surgery last year Braden gave him his whole Pokémon collection, and I wish he could’ve seen the way my brothers face lit up when he saw all of it. I’ll never forget how we would play around and mess with people in the morning before school, from accidentally on purpose throwing stuff at freshman to hiding Cobey’s phone it was always a good time when Braden was around. I love you so much Braden and I already miss you like crazy.

It was a privilege to have known Braden and to have been his Kindergarten teacher. He was a bright, gifted, and loving boy that was full of energy. He loved books and was always eager to learn. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

My brother,one of my closest friends. I love you so much. We met in the 4th grade in iss and instantly we instantly became friends. You Braden introduced me to D.C and Marcel comics and legos and nearly all the things I love. We had so many adventures together from the “hole in your back yard” to splashway to Camp Zephyr to my grandmas 80th birthday and to your families trip to the frio river this summer and so much more. It’s always been me and you in the long haul and I loved every minute of it (even tho you thought Marvel was better than D.C). Although I’m sad I can’t help but be happy to know you’re in the golden streets with God. I love you Braden so much. Fly high.

I was very fond of Braden. I loved to play the crazy great Uncle and rib him and his brother. Our children are precious, his passing will suffer us all. May his parents find solace in that his entire family loved him and will miss him.
