Mrazek, William - Naperville  
Mrazek, William Charles "Bill" Age 88, of Naperville, IL, formerly of Berwyn and Woodridge, IL, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at his home. He was born December 22, 1926 in Berwyn, IL to the loving late parents, Joseph and Rose Mrazek. Beloved husband of the late Clara A. Mrazek (nee Wagener), whom he married on June 27, 1948; cherished father of William R. (Gloria) Mrazek of Naperville and Nancy (Dale) Message of Gurnee, IL; loving grandfather of Danielle and William G. Mrazek, and Christopher and Matthew Message; brother of the late Edward, Otto, Charles, Joseph, Robert, George, and Richard Mrazek; uncle and great-uncle to many. Bill was the youngest of eight children, all boys! Originally named Leonard Frank at birth by his parents, his name was quickly changed to William Charles under the direct influence of his seven older brothers, who in a unified vote, strongly stated (insisted) that their kid brother should be named, William Charles; and so it was. Joseph's trade as a tailor kept the eight boys clothed, Rose kept them all well fed, and the brothers guided and influenced Bill through his childhood. He attended Morton East High School, Berwyn and was president of the school paper and yearbook, where his interest in the printing trade began. He also met Clara Annette Wagener at Morton, and began dating her after winning her over with his wonderful sense of humor, his ability as head usher to get her into the Olympic Theatre for free including all the popcorn she could eat, and his well-deserved reputation throughout the school as a "really nice guy." After graduation, he served two years in the U.S. Army Air Force, and was stationed in Okinawa as a General's assistant. When asked what he did in the service, he would smile and say that he was a member of the famed Remington Raiders (the Remington name referring to the typewriter he used in his assignment). On completion of his tour of duty, he returned home and married Clara, his high school sweetheart. He began his career in the printing trade, and together raised two children, William and Nancy. He was a loving and caring husband, and a perfect father who was always there to listen, guide, teach, and console whenever it was needed. He loved his grandchildren, as evidenced by an automatic smile that always came to his face whenever they were around or their names were mentioned. With all of his wonderful qualities, one that everyone who ever met him always talks about was his wonderful sense of humor and sharp wit. He made everyone laugh and feel good whenever he was around. He is now with his sweetheart and wife, Clara; his parents; and all of his brothers, who are enjoying having him with them once again. Here on earth, we will rejoice in our memories of who he was and share all of the humorous stories that he provided. He will be remembered, cherished, and missed for a long, long time. Visitation Friday, January 30th 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Friedrich-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 44 S. Mill St., Naperville, IL 60540. Funeral Services Saturday, January 31, 2015, 10:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Interment: Chapel Hill Gardens West Cemetery, Oakbrook Terrace, IL. In lieu of flowers, memorials to: American Heart Association, 208 South Lasalle Street, Ste. 1500, Chicago, IL 60604, (312) 346-4675, www.heart.org For more information, please call 630-355-0213 or visit www.friedrich-jones.com
