Spielman, Patrick E. "Mr. Pat"
Patrick E. "Mr. Pat" Spielman died suddenly Wednesday, Oct. 27 at his home in Fish Creek as the result of an apparent heart attack. He was born March 17, 1936, in Spring Lake Township, Minn. to Andrew M. and Della Jean (Ince) Spielman. Patrick graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout in 1958 with a Bachelors degree in Industrial Arts. He was married to Patricia "Mrs. Pat" Rogers June 7, 1958. He spent 27 years as a high school woodworking instructor, 23 of them at Gibraltar High School. Through use of hands-on techniques he inspired his students to create innovative and practical projects. Motivating his students to apply themselves and develop their talents was his passion, and he leaves behind hundreds of dedicated students as part of his legacy. Patrick was a world-renowned author of over 65 woodworking books with special editions published in several languages. He began working on his first book at the age of 24, and continued authoring books, including two current projects, over the span of his 46 year career. In addition to his success as an entrepreneur, he was a sought after process and design consultant to woodworking equipment manufacturers, and a respected spokesperson for innovative and quality industry products. His entrepreneurial ventures were a result of his innovative spirit and creative mind. Patrick, along with wife Patricia, began a business out of his workshop in 1974 with his own hand-crafted products, turnings, signs and cedar lawn furniture. The business grew to include consignment and manufactured products and moved to its current location in downtown Fish Creek in 1982. In March of 2003, Patrick was honored with the James Huff Stout Award. The honor is given to a distinguished alumnus for their work in enhancing the prestige of UW-Stout and enriching the lives of those touched by their work.
Pat is survived by his beloved wife, Patricia; son, Robert (Bonnie), Baileys Harbor; daughter, Sherri (Luke) Valitchka, De Pere; daughter, Sandra (Bernie) Friedenfels, Jacksonport; two grandchildren, Zoe Samantha-Ann Valitchka; Sophia Marie Friedenfels, and a third grandchild expected in November; and sister, Winnifred (Andrew) Schoenbauer.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers Donald and Robert; and step-father Nick Wolf.

Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2 at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Fish Creek with Pastor Michael Brecke officiating. Burial services will follow at Blossomburg Cemetery in Peninsula State Park, Fish Creek.
