Ralph Joseph Antczak, son of Frank, and Eva Antczak, was born March 9, 1937 in Milwaukee.

He attended St. Cyril’s grade school, graduated from Don Bosco High School and further his education at Marquette University and served in the U.S. Army.

He met the love of his life, Patricia Swendowski, in high school, they were married 60 years. They resided in new Berlin, Wisconsin and had two children, Scott Antczak and Pamela Kaebisch.

Ralph worked for a pharmaceutical company until he retired and turned one of his hobbies, photography, into a wedding photography business. Ralph spent his free time hunting, hiking, fly-fishing, singing in a barbershop quartet, shooting, guitar playing, and riding with Pat on his motorcycle out west.

He was blessed with two granddaughters Kasey Metz (Tyler) and Mackenzie Litzau (Ryan). He was also great-grandfather to Colsen Metz and his future granddaughter, Lucy Litzau. He loved his family dearly and his presence will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank Aurora Home Hospice for the wonderful care and compassion during his illness.
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations to the Salvation Army. This was one of Ralph’s favorite organizations.
