Edward L. Pleshek

Wed, 07/15/2015 - 10:30pm

Edward L. “Pete” Pleshek, 80, passed away peacefully at home on July 14, 2015, surrounded by his family after a brief battle with cancer.

Pete was born on Sept. 1, 1934, to the late Edward and Irene (Bartline) Pleshek. Pete graduated from Shawano High School in the Class of 1953. Shortly thereafter he began his career as a meat cutter at Leibman’s in Green Bay. He worked there for nearly 18 years until they closed their doors. He then went to work for Armour’s for 10 years until they, too, closed their doors. He decided to buy some milk cows and farmed at his own residence for several years. He was employed part time as the butcher at the IGA in Gresham. When they hired him full time, he sold the cows. He finished his professional career working for seven years at Provimi Veal in Seymour.

Pete married Lolly (Aprill) Dinse on June 24, 1972. They brought their families together and set up their new life in Gresham. Pete loved baseball and played for many years. He then managed the former Gresham City team now known as the Gophers. He has been recognized in both the Shawano and Gresham baseball Hall of Fames. His other hobbies included snowmobiling, golfing, hunting, fishing, cutting up deer and taking rides on the Gator. Each October for 30 years Pete and several friends would travel to South Dakota to go pheasant hunting. Each November he could be found cutting up deer for all the successful hunters. After retirement, he and Lolly enjoyed traveling with friends and creating memories with their numerous grandchildren. Each February they would rent a hotel room and invite their family to come swim with them. Good food, fun and family time were included in all their events. A yearly trip to Bay Beach with a huge picnic was an annual event all the grandchildren looked forward to. In the spring an Easter egg hunt was the main event. Sometimes Pete hid the eggs so well, even he couldn’t find them.

Pete is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Lolly; eight children, Paul (Mary) Pleshek, of Bonduel; Polly (Calvin) Montoure, Gresham; Peter Pleshek, Shawano; Phyllis (Jim) Blilie, Shoreview, Minnesota; Patrick (Heidi) Pleshek, Gresham; Preston Pleshek, Shawano; Rick (Toni) Dinse, Shawano; Holly (Jeff) Schmidt, Gresham; and one brother, Richard (Carol) Pleshek, of Shawano; brothers and sisters-in-law, Mary Pleshek, Shawano, Florence Birr, Oconto Falls, Velma Aprill, Oconto Falls, Evelyn (John) Cayo, Green Bay, Bud (Mae) Aprill, Pulaski, Joanne Tinsler, Boise Idaho, and Herbie (Connie) Aprill, Oconto Falls; 23 grandchildren, 26 great- grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

Pete was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Russell Pleshek; sisters, Barbara Niemuth and Donna Radetski; and brothers-in-law, Lester Niemuth, Larry Radetski, Donald Aprill; and granddaughter, Paula Pecore.

Memorial services will be held at St. Francis Solanus Catholic Church in Gresham on Monday, July 20, 2015, at 11a.m. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until the time of service. The Rev. David McElroy, O. Praem, will officiate the service. Swedberg Funeral Home is assisting the family.

The family would like to thank the ThedaCare hospice team for their kind, tender, loving care of Pete.

Pete affectionately gave each grandson the nickname “Buckshot.” He will be remembered for his kind heart, friendship and infectious laugh. When family would leave he would always say, “Grandpa see you.” Until we meet again.
