The Legendary Wicen Brothers - together in heaven.
Stephen Wicen 1927-2006 / Frank Wicen 1920-2005
Stephen Wicen of Furlong died Thursday, March 2, 2006, at Doylestown Hospital. He was 79. Steve had been diagnosed with bone cancer in May of 2005, and his health rapidly went downhill following the death of his brother, Frank.
He was the loving husband for 39 years of the late Helen M. Convey Wicen.
Born on the family farm in Mozart, which is now Furlong, Stephen was the son of the late Januar and Julia Gregush Wicen.
Stephen was a life-long resident of Furlong and had been a farmer all of his life. He knew what it was to work hot days and long hours and he never complained. After a day's work, he always could be found at home and especially at night with his family. He was the type of man that would be ready to help his neighbors at the drop of a hat. Stephen's family may have been small but to his many friends, he was their Dad for he was always available to listen and lend a hand.
Stephen and his late brother, Frank, farmed many acres in the Bucks County area. They also owned and operated the Wicen Farm shooting and target range - a responsibility being continued by Steve's son, Joseph.
In his leisure time, Stephen enjoyed square dancing, hunting and fishing with his family and friends.
He is survived by his children, Joseph M. Wicen and his wife, Lori, and her children, Sara and Douglas, of Furlong, and Linda T. McHenry and her husband, Charles; and two granddaughters, Erin and Kiara, all of Furlong; and one sister, Julia Swartz of Dublin. He also is survived by his sisters-in-law, Kitty and Kay Wicen, both of Furlong; his nephew, Rudy Wicen; and several nieces, great-nieces and great-nephews.
