Mica Friederick

1/12/15

Mica David Friederick, 40, of Galena, passed away on January 12, 2015, at home surrounded by his devoted wife of 19 years and loving family. The past 5 ½ years, Mica amazed everyone that knew him by living his best, happiest life with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  Mica was born on August 13, 1974 in Dubuque, IA, the son of Carl and Carol (Kupferschmidt) Friederick. Mica grew up in the small township of Buncombe, WI where he enjoyed every child's dream of adventure and to experience creative spirit. It would not be unusual to see Mica and his three siblings riding bikes on the country roads or swimming in the pond his father made on their homestead. Even the mighty Mississippi was a place of adventure where the family boated and fished from a retired barge his father made into a house boat.  Mica attended Southwestern Schools and graduated in 1992. In 1993, Mica moved to Madison where he began working in the banking industry at Valley Bank (M&I Bank, BMO Harris) and frequently promoted. Mica always said, "If I'm not up for a promotion every six months, I must be doing something wrong!" Mica worked full-time in banking while he continued his formal education and earned an Associate Degree from Madison College in 1994 and in 1998 a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration/Marketing and minored in Finance from Lakeland College. Madison was a special city for Mica. He met the love of his life, Susan (Lautenschlaeger) Friederick there. They married on September 30, 1995 in a one of kind ceremony on the Capitol steps in Madison, WI. They had a ton of fun, loved each other, and supported each other while they attended college, started a family, and began their life together. A new opportunity in banking took Mica, Susan and their daughters to Galena, Illinois. Mica was the Branch Manager at Galena State Bank (Stockton location). After his ALS diagnosis, he retired from Galena State Bank in July, 2010. Mica inspired everyone around him with his positive outlook on life. He decided to live each day and Choose Happy, a tagline he created and lived by. Mica said, "I've been faced with a challenge that I'm unable to control, but I am able to choose how I handle it. I decided to remain focused on what is working and continue to adapt. I've chosen to be happy! I consider myself the luckiest man in the world because of the great life I'm living." Mica, Susan, and his daughters traveled the world to try and squeeze as much life into his healthy days as possible. Mica loved to spend time outdoors with family and friends biking, camping, boating, riding his motorcycle, fishing, four-wheeling, jet skiing, and driving his convertible with the top down.  Go Pack Go! Mica and his brothers in-law (Brad, Jerod, David) enjoyed many great years of attending Packers games at Lambeau Field. Mica's love of the Packers spilled over to his two daughters and you would find them cheering for The Pack every Sunday.  Courage. Love. Lots of humor is how the family stayed positive during each difficult change in Mica's health. Mica and Susan feel blessed to have been able to spend every day together working as a team to keep their family united. Mica is survived by his wife Susan (Lautenschlaeger) Friederick, daughter Olivia (15), daughter Ella (12); His siblings Bart (Paige) Friederick, Leah (Garrett Gutknecht) Ubersox, Tina (Danny) Loos; His siblings in-law Lori (Brad) Baus, Sarah (Jerod) Bennett, David (Shannon) Lautenschlaeger; Many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.  Mica was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Leroy and Mary (Bies) Friederick, maternal grandparents David and Dorothy (Meyer) Kupferschmidt. Uncles: Donny Friederick, Ralph Friederick, Earl Friederick, Leo Friederick. Aunt Mary Friederick. Visitation will be held on Sunday, January 18th at 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at Furlong Funeral Chapel, Galena, IL. Funeral mass will be held on Monday, January 19th at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church, Galena, IL. Burial will immediately follow the mass at St. Mary Catholic Cemetery. All are invited to join Susan and family at Fried Green Tomatoes, Galena for a luncheon and an opportunity to share in the wonderful memories and positive energy Mica embodied every day.  Mica, Susan, Olivia, and Ella wish to extend a special thank you to:  Dr. Vandigo and nursing staff, Hospice of Dubuque: Lisa, Melanie, Jessica, and Peggy, the staff of 24-Hour Care, Tom Furlong, Father Reese, friends, and the community of Galena for rallying around, praying for and supporting our family during Mica's illness.  Memorial donations can be left at Galena State Bank and will be used to create an educational scholarship for Olivia and Ella
