Richard “Dick” T. Mielcarek, age 79, of Maumee, passed away on May 19, 2020 at Hospice after a courageous 5-year battle with cancer.  He was born on August 11, 1940 to Felix and Helen (Zientek) Mielcarek in Toledo. Dick proudly served his country in the United States Army. He worked in shipping and receiving for Sinclair Manufacturing and retired from Honey Baked Hams. Dick coached many years of both baseball and C.Y.O. basketball for St. Hyacinth.  One of his proudest moments,while coaching, was his 1975 Pee Wee team advancing to the Little League World Series in Georgia, which was truly a family affair.  
Richard was preceded in death by his parents.  He will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 57 years, Diane (Budzyn); sons, Jeff, Mike (Michaela), and Rick (Cindy); grandchildren, Josh (Erica), Mitch (Rachel), Nick (Jessica), Blake, Travis (Maria), Madeline and Veronica (Luke) Bockbrader; 10 great grandchildren; sister, Ginnie Mohler; daughter-in-law, Sally; nieces & nephews, as well as many close friends, which he considered extended family.  He also enjoyed sharing his weekly Monday & Friday visits to Shawn's with family, friends, the great staff, as well as many other patrons who became friends.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Mark Bruss, Dr. Shaili Desai and Dr. Saleem Zafar for the wonderful care and compassion they provided during this journey.
