Steven M. Solecki

Steven M. Solecki, 65, formerly of Port Washington, died at his home in Saukville on Tuesday, May 22.  

Mr. Solecki was born in Milwaukee on Feb. 6, 1953, to Al and Vivian Grossman Solecki.

He attended local schools and graduated from West Division High School in 1971.  

On May 20, 1972, he married Deborah Wilson.

The couple raised their two sons in Milwaukee.

According to his family, Mr. Solecki was a hard worker who was dedicated to his job in shipping and receiving at Eaton Corp. for almost 20 years.

He most recently worked in the shipping department for the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans in Brookfield, retiring in 2016 after 20 years on the job.

Following his retirement, Mr. Solecki moved to Port Washington and then to Saukville in 2017.

His family said he was an avid movie watcher who especially liked science fiction films.

He also enjoyed comic books, video games, photography, shopping and adding items to his collections.  

He understood the value of technology and computers long before they were trendy, and taught his sons computer-based skills when they were young.

Mr. Solecki was also fond of spending time at the shooting range, his family said.

Mr. Solecki is survived by his sons Vincent (Jodi) of Waukesha and Donald of Waubeka; and grandson Logan of Green Bay.  

He is further survived by his special friends Ronald Swanson and Denise Sobocinski, both of Milwaukee, and former wife Deborah (James) Pirwitz of Waubeka.

At Mr. Solecki’s request, there will be private family services.

Eernisse Funeral Home in Port Washington is handling the arrangements.
