Date of Death

January 27, 2022

Frank Chybik Jr., age 83, of Maple Park, IL, passed away at his home, surrounded by the love and prayers of his wife, in the early morning hours of Thursday, January 27, 2022.

He was born April 9, 1938, in Chicago, IL, to proud and loving parents, Frank and Anastasia Chybik.

Frank grew up on the family apple orchard, near Butterfield Park in Elmhurst, IL, and attended local schools. He graduated from York High School with the class of 1956. He answered the call of his country and before his graduation ceremony, Frank enlisted into the United States Air Force. Frank was stationed in Chicopee, Massachusetts at Westover Airforce Base before serving in Sidi Slimane, Morocco. 

Upon his honorable discharge, he returned to his hometown of Elmhurst where he utilized the GI Bill to take classes at Elmhurst College where he graduated with a degree.

Frank met the love of his life through the Village of Roselle where Jeanne Moeller was working. A friendship bloomed into marriage on April 5, 1986. They began their new life together in West Chicago for a time before settling to the Circle C Ranch in Maple Park, IL.

Frank began his working career as a contractor, and it would become a lifelong vocation. He owned his own business, CDL, where he built and sold flash tubes. Later he was contracted by NASA, to provide landing lights for the lunar module and worked on airport approach lighting. He also was involved in refurbishment and testing of the integrated waste management system, later becoming the life support system for the space shuttle. He then started Power Control Assoc. Inc. as a self-employed electrical contractor specializing in municipal sewer and water, providing assistance and inspiration to many local operators. He retired in 2006 but never put down his tools as he began a collection of antique cars and street rods, spending countless hours on a 1938 Ford Deluxe Business Coup, “a car the same age as me”, he would always say. With the help of friends, the finished car was delivered and from afar he was able to see it completed.  

He was a proud member of Local 701 IBEW, the Elmhurst Masonic Lodge 941, the Elburn American Legion, Post 630 and the Elmhurst Jaycees “Exhausted Roosters”.

Frank was an avid hunter and fisherman from childhood. He hunted on his way to school, stashing his shotgun in his locker. Later he would travel to Alaska, Minnesota, and Northwest Washington to hunt game and fish for the next “big one”. Whether those trips ended in a whopper of a tail, or tale, depended on the trip. As a member of the Elmhurst Jaycees, one of the projects he spearheaded and with the help of many, was construct a path in Elmhurst, which is now the Prairie Path. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Jeanne Chybik; two daughters: Marie Ciancio and Caren (Rik) Morse; five grandchildren: one great-granddaughter; two more great-grandchildren on the way; two nephews; a mother in law Bernice Moeller; brother in law Dale Moeller (Cheryl) and their family; and  a family of friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Anastasia Chybik and two sisters, Irene McDonald and Sally Schimmel.
