Constant "Connie" Charles Chilicki was called to the Lord on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at the age of 93. Beloved husband and best friend of Beverly Joan (Johnson) Chilicki.
Constant was the last surviving child of the late Mary (Konetsky) and Konstanty Chilicki. He was preceded to heaven by his brothers, Rev. Stanley (LaCrosse Diocese), Frances (Helen) and Anthony Chilicki and by sisters, Genevieve (Jean) and Agnes (the late Raymond) Sporrer.
A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Nativity of Our Lord Parish located at the corner of King and Conro Street. The visitation will take place on Saturday morning at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of the mass. Fr. Mike Tupa will be officiating.
A private family committal will take place at the Town of Armstrong Creek Cemetery at a later date. Memorials to the Liturgy Music Program at Nativity of Our Lord Parish would be appreciated.
Connie had dedicated 24 years of service as a Catholic Priest. He requested and received a Dispensation from all obligations of Holy Orders in 1974 with a condition under oath not to divulge priestly status where unknown.
In 1988 Connie retired as the Community Development Director for the City of Wausau. Golden Years were enhanced by years of volunteer work in the Meals on Wheels program at the Oneida County Senior Center.
Throughout his life as a clergyman or as a married man, Connie strove to embrace a simple prayer as a philosophy of life; "Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly, and leave the rest to God."
