Norman “Bub” Wilcenski, age 87, of Gilman, passed away on Wednesday, October 3, 2012, at his home. Norman was born January 18, 1925, at home in Gilman, the son of the late Frank & Lucille (Herman) Wilcenski. He grew up in Gilman, graduating from Gilman High School. Norman worked at home on the family farm, and on May 29, 1946, was united in marriage to Letty Grusecki at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Gilman. They then moved to the Town of Aurora where they have lived and farmed ever since. Norman was a handy man who could fix everything, enjoyed hunting, and had a good sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Letty, in 2005; a brother, Aloise Wilcenski; and a sister, Genevieve Levine.

Services were held Monday, October 8, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Gilman, with Fr. John Long officiating. Friends and family called from 9:00 a.m. until time of service at the church on Monday. Burial followed in the parish cemetery.
