Wally Czech was born June 25, 1932 on the family farm East of Royalton to the late Robert and Emma (Schlichting) Czech.  He graduated from Royalton High School with the class of 1950.  He served his Country in the United States Army from 1953-1956.  After his honorable discharge he returned to Royalton where he bought a farm South East of Royalton.  He was united in marriage to Marcia Ritter on August 20, 1956. The couple made their home on the farm where they worked side by side. He was always expanding and growing  his operation by building barns, sheds and a new house. In, 1972, he bought the neighbor's farm and doubled his acreage, he was finally "A Big Farmer".  But while farming was his passion, he was never too busy to give back! He was a township supervisor for 18 years, serving from 1974-1991.  He didn't miss a wedding, graduation or family funeral, his family and friends were is greatest priority.

Wally's and Marcy's children's friends were always welcome in their home. Many times, visiting them when the kids were away, because they indeed become part of the family.

He enjoyed going to tractor shows, reading, especially books about the history of the common man. Wally was the greatest gift receiver, treating each gift he was given as a small treasure, this surely made the giver of the gift feel very special.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 67 years, Marcia Czech; children, Steve (Deb) Czech, Em (Steve) Smith, Dee (Dave) Kirchner, Larry Czech, Joe (Jenny) Czech, Bernie (Marne) Czech, Jan (Marty) Egan and Gerald Czech; 17 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren and a sister, Marie Raun

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Clarence and sister, Loretta (Bob) Demarais and a great-grandson, Liam.

Emblom Brenny Funeral Service is Cherishing the Memory and Celebrating the Life of Wally.
