Alfred John Czarny, “Fred”, 83, passed away at home on April 9, 2016 following a long battle with cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disease (COPD).

Alfred was born March 23, 1933 in Chicago to John and Anna (Wodka) Czarny. He was united in marriage to Rose (Lupo) and they moved to Burlington, WI. Fred was an Army veteran serving on a ship that was rerouted from Korea to Germany as the end of the Korean War was declared. He retired from American Motors/Chrysler in Kenosha as a proud union member after 36 years of service.

Fred is survived by his wife, Rose, of nearly 60 years, daughter Karen, sons John and Ken, grandson Ryan (Brittany) and granddaughter Rachel (Shawn). He is also survived by his brothers William (Evelyn) and Rudy (Marcia), along with special daughter Jolly Waukau and many extended family members. He was proceeded in death by his devoted son Richard, his parents, John and Anna Wodka, sister Sophie, brother Edmund (Eileen) and other family members.

A Mass celebrating his life will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at St. Paul the Apostle Church, 6400 Spring St. Racine, WI, Friday with Reverend Terry Huebner officiating. Visitation with the family will be held at the church from 9 a.m. until time of Mass. Private burial with full military honors will be held at Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Union Grove, WI. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to the American Cancer Society or St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.

Fred’s family extends its deepest appreciation to Dr. Mark Choi and all the nurses at the Wheaton Franciscan Cancer Center in Racine who provided four years of compassionate care, kind words and companionship during his bi­weekly chemo treatments. We also thank the Heartland Home Hospice team for the care provided during the last four months of Fred’s life.
