Mark Edward Vietzen, beloved Father and Papa, passed away peacefully February 5, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was born September 26, 1957 in Elmhurst, IL. He was a hero and champion to his children Jessica Vietzen, Kyle (Kathryn) Vietzen, and Michael Vietzen. Mark was always their first phone call and would go to any lengths for his children. He was also the proud grandpa (Papa) to Olivia Vietzen.
He is survived by his sister Laurel Vietzen and her husband Robert Warski, his brother Matt Vietzen, and his brother Paul Vietzen and his wife Rebecca Vietzen. He was also a cherished uncle to Peter Warski, Elise Leet (Warski), Lora Vietzen, and Grace Vietzen.
Preceded in death by his parents: Edward and Lora “Gail” Vietzen (Hendry).
Mark was as hard a worker there was. He was consumed with ensuring his children were taken care of, but also constantly looked out for the rest of his family. Mark lived for his family. He was a diehard Green Bay Packer fan and could always be counted on for a lively game day conversation. He loved traveling with his family to Disney World, where he made sure to take them every year- memories that will be cherished forever. His spirit and sense of humor can be seen in photos taken from each trip and live on in his children.
To say he will be sorely missed is to put it as lightly as one can.
A visitation will be held at Geils Funeral Home in Wood Dale, Illinois on February 20, 2021 from 9:00am-11:00am.
