Edward Seavecki passed away peacefully on December 18 2021 at 99 years old. Edward was a resident of Wautoma for 65 years. Prior to moving to Wautoma to become a merchant, he worked on his family farm, worked in a factory, and was a bookkeeper. Edward was married to Joyce Seavecki for 72 years, enjoying their lives together with their seven children.
Edward was proud of his Polish Heritage and had several journeys to his family's original homestead in Poland. He also would listen to Polka Bands and Polka Music whenever he had the chance. He loved working his land with his John Deere, smoking good cigars, fishing for “black bass”, and playing cribbage with everyone.
He became a merchant in 1956, and eventually owned and operated 4 variety stores in Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Princeton and Wautoma. He also served as Wautoma’s mayor from 1961-63. He loved his community and was an active member of the Lion’s Club as well as president of the club and voted Lion of the Year in 1988.
He was also a devout catholic and a 4th degree Knight of Columbus, Faithful Navigator, and Commander of the Honor Guard. He never missed a Sunday mass.
