Mielcarek, Mike Mike Mielcarek, 33, Howard, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, April 13, 2017. He was born March 29, 1984, to Randy and Sue (Baumgart) Mielcarek. Mike was a stand-out football player for the Bayport Pirates, graduating with the Class of 2002. He furthered his education at UW-Madison, graduating with a degree in electrical engineering. On March 4, 2012, Mike and Laissez Van Vleet welcomed into the world Mike's pride and joy, his son, Damien. Mike loved spending time with Damien, reading to him, going for bike rides, swimming, playing ball together, nerf wars, building Legos and playing army men. Well known for his love of condiments and relish trays, Mike made an art form out of the simple act of ordering a burger. He was a loving and caring father, son, brother and uncle. His sense of humor, appreciation for heavy metal, and humble spirit will be missed. Survivors include his son, Damien; his mother, Sue Mielcarek; a brother Ben Mielcarek; a sister, Maggie (fiancée, Brooke Van Zeeland); nieces, Emily and Ava; uncles, aunts, and cousins; and too many friends to mention. He was preceded in death by his father, Randy Mielcarek; and his grandparents, Marge and Tony Baumgart and Vic and Irene Mielcarek.
