He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Aurelia; sisters, Agnes Pasztor and Loretta Gulla; and brothers, John, Karl and Harold Mauck.

Funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday at St. Clements Catholic Church, McLeansboro with Father George Mauck officiating. Graveside military rites will be accorded by American Legion Post 106, McLeansboro. Burial will be at St. Clements Catholic Church Cemetery, McLeansboro.
