Mark R. Cibulka
Mark R. Cibulka, age 58, of Merrill, died on Friday, January 29, 2016 at his residence. He was born on May 28, 1957 to the late Richard and Wilida (Telford) Cibulka in Milwaukee, WI. Mark attended and graduated from the Milwaukee Lutheran High School and went on to further his education by earning a bachelors degree in Criminal and Justice Science. He met Stacy Robinson, and the two exchanged vows on March 20, 1982 in Milwaukee, WI.
Mark served as a police officer for over 18 years, 9 ½ years with the Milwaukee Police Department and 9 years with the Mosinee Police Department. Law enforcement was very important to him and he wanted to make sure that he taught his children right from wrong, and wanted to use his knowledge to help them stay on the right path. Most recently, Mark worked as a wine salesman and a sales representative for over 7 years for the Shiraz Wine Company.
When Mark was not working, he would enjoy cheering on the Green Bay Packers. Mark and his family made numerous trips to Walt Disney World, which was always something that he cherished.
He would also take time to enjoy the outdoors – he was an avid hunter, whether it was deer, pheasant or duck.
Mark was a very private person that battled ALS for the last three years. He was very strong and driven. Although he was a strong man, he had a huge heart and cared very deeply about his family. He will be sadly missed.
Mark is survived by his wife: Stacy Cibulka of Merrill, son: Todd Chibulka of Merrill, daughter: Nicole Chibulka (Richard Magray) of Merrill, brothers-in-law: Mark Robinson and Kimm (Kathy) Robinson, mother-in-law: Janet Robinson and numerous nieces, nephews and great nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents: Richard and Wilida Cibulka and his father-in-law: Gerald Robinson.
A Celebration of Life for Mark will be held on Monday, February 8, 2016 from 11AM-2PM at the Waid Funeral Home in Merrill.
