Connie was born on February 8, 1927, to Frank and Victoria (Petrick) Shuda (Schuday) in Stevens Point. He attended Stoney Ridge and St. Casimir’s schools. At the age of 13, Connie began a carpenter apprenticeship with J.J. Borski. At the age of 17, he entered the U.S. Navy and served our country for two-and-a-half years.
Upon returning from the Navy, Connie worked as a carpenter for several housing contractors including J.J. Borski, Stanley Borski, and Frank Napiwocki, building homes in and around the Stevens Point area.
Around 1970, Connie began working as a millwright for Bakerite Baking Company in Plover. After Bakerite’s closure, Connie continued maintaining the building for both Moore America and J. P. Mach
until his retirement in 1994. Upon retirement, Connie became a small engine repairman and spent his “free time” repairing countless lawnmowers, snow blowers, and rototillers. Through his business, he developed numerous lifelong friends/customers.
Connie married Ann Jurgella on October 28, 1950, at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church.
Connie is survived by his son Michael (Kathy) Shuda, daughters Jane (Chris) Giese, and Susan Shuda, all of Stevens Point, and his son Frank (Kori) Shuda of Lincolnton, NC. He is further survived by one brother, Ambrose “John” Shuda.
Connie is also survived by nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
In addition to his wife Ann, Connie was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Ann in 2002, his
sisters Irene and Evelyn, and his brother Robert.
