Daniel J. “Danny” Tikalsky, 62

Daniel J. “Danny” Tikalsky, age 62, of New Prague, died unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.  Danny was born on April 2, 1959 in New Prague to Daniel J. and Helen (Bartyzal) Tikalsky.  Danny grew up in New Prague, graduating from New Prague High School and then attended a Vocational Technical School for a short time.  He worked for United Steel out of Montgomery and moved to North Carolina, where he managed a plant for United Steel.  His roots brought him back to New Prague about 20 years ago and Danny realized a dream of using his talents by creating and owning Tikalsky Laser.  He was a man of many talents both artistic and athletic.  In addition to his laser business, he was a meticulous woodworker, creating objects of art with perfection.  His love for the outdoors saw him hunting, fishing, and kayaking, never enjoying it more than when up at the Sirek cabin.  He was an avid rugby player and a member of multiple rugby clubs.  When he had spare time, a good game of poker was his card game of choice.  But his greatest enjoyment came in the devotion he had toward his grandchildren, his nieces & nephews, and great-nieces and –nephews.  Danny was the fun uncle, the devoted grandpa, and the one they flocked to for hugs and giggles. 

Danny is survived by his son, Daniel (Mandy) Tikalsky of Mequon, WI; daughter, Nicole Huffman of North Carolina; grandchildren, Caroline, Roman, & Nora; mother, Helen Tikalsky of New Prague; siblings, Danette (Mark) Svobodny of Hollywood, MD, David (Joni) Tikalsky of New Prague, Doreen (Craig) Most of New Prague, Deb (Russ) Sirek of Lonsdale, Dennis (Julie) Tikalsky of Veseli, Douglas (Jamy) Tikalsky of Montgomery; many nieces & nephews.  He is preceded in death by his father in 2002.
