Vic F. Thiedek, 72, passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 27.
Born on Dec. 27, 1940, to Victor G. and Leona Thiedek, he attended Catholic Central School and graduated from Marinette High School in 1959.
He served in the United States Army from 1959 to 1962 and worked in the airline industry for over 35 years, but his true gift and passion was woodcarving.
