Obituary for Anthony Joseph Lyjak

Anthony J. Lyjak, age 89 , of Stevens Point, died May 28, 2019 at the Portage County Healthcare Center while under the care of hospice.

Anthony was born January 8, 1930 to the late Anton and Rose (Wojciehoski) Lyjak in Chicago, IL. He grew up there and attended the local schools.

In his earlier years, Anthony worked for ARF in Chicago as an assembly worker. He relocated to the central Wisconsin area and became employed at Bake Rite. Anthony later found work with Consolidated Papers. He worked as a Lab Technician for Conseweld (a division of Consolidated) until retirement.

Anthony married Betty Webie on July 5, 1947 at St. Paul Lutheran Church. They were happily married for 71 years.

He spent his life as a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather.

Family and Faith meant everything to Anthony. He was a lifelong member of St. Paul Lutheran Church where he kept active in the YAHS Club and as a volunteer. Anthony had been blessed with the drive and ability to build and construct; he had built a family cottage and home. Anthony was also known as the family handyman and would help his family in any way possible. He enjoyed the simple things life had to offer and the time he was able to spend fishing.

He is survived by his loving daughters, Diane (Gus) Turk, Bonnie (Peter) Hamann, Kitty Steckel and Pam (Duane) Danielski; 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren; 3 step great-grandchildren; and 3 great-great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Anton and Rose; wife, Betty; and granddaughter, Dawn Lucas.
