      Malin George Konieczny was born on May 21, 1925, in Thorp, WI, to Joe and Josephine (Rzetelney) Konieczny. He was raised on the family farm and received his education at Pineland School. Malin moved to Chicago in the late 1940’s, and it was there that he met the love of his life, Lillian Burzinski. Malin served in the Korean War from 1951 to 1952. He was an Army Staff Sergeant in the 38 Infantry, 2nd Division. Upon his return from the service, he was united in marriage to Lillian Burzinski on June 22, 1953 in Thorp, WI. In 1957, they moved back to Thorp and purchased the family farm. While farming, Malin also worked for the Town of Withee as a truck driver and grader operator. He retired from farming in 1978 and worked at Teledyne in Owen, until his retirement in 1990.
      Malin loved polka music. To honor his request, a polka band will play in the afternoon at the American Legion Hall. Besides polka music, Malin was an avid newspaper reader of current events, gardener, and weather watcher. He also was a member of the Thorp American Legion and Knights of Columbus. Malin loved to travel and recently spent time in Florida, Michigan and attended many polka festivals.
