Michael "Mike" A. Nowaczek, 69, of Ingleside, IL, passed peacefully November 26, 2022, in his home. He was born to Arthur and Anne Nowaczek on November 4, 1953, in Chicago, IL.
After graduation from Gordon Tech Highschool in 1971, Mike went on to work and later retire from the Sheet Metal Workers' Local Union 73.
Mike met and married his soulmate, Cheryl (nee Schelberger) Nowaczek on December 15, 1984. Shortly after they welcomed their first child together, Donald. Ten years later, they were blessed with their daughter, Donna.
Mike is survived by his wife, Cheryl Nowaczek; their children, Donald and Donna; brother, Steven Nowaczek; and many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews.
Mike was a calming presence to all those around him. Anyone that knew him, knew Mike absolutely loved his golf. If he wasn't playing on Sundays with his son and brother-in-law, he was watching it on TV everyday of the week. He loved sports, especially his Chicago teams.
He will be missed by his very large family, and his many friends.
A celebration of Mike's life will be held privately.
