Chuck Koleczek Family Memorial Fund

The Arlington Heights & Olive Mary-Stitt community suffered a tragic loss with the sudden & tragic death of Chuck Koleczek.   Chuck passed away on Sunday, March 13, from a traumatic brain injury following a fall at his mother's rural WI cabin which they were cleaning out in preparation for the property sale.  Misuk & the three boys (Benjamin 6, Peter 4, & Charlie 18 months) do not have a financial plan in place for a secure future.  Please join us in wrapping this family with our finanial gifts that will be used to pay for medical, housing, food, counseling & other immediate needs.  It is our hope to raise enough money to establish college funds for the boys.  Chuck was born & raised in the neighborhood, was such a fixture in this community & could be seen daily walking his dog Louis & 3 boys around the neighborhood.   No one is prepared for something like this & no gift is too small to show his wife & kids how much this community cares for our people.  Thank you so very much for anything you can do to support this family.
