The Clergy, Executive Board, and Members of St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church express condolences to the family of Radmilo “Rade” Radojcic. Memory eternal.
Age 83, of Crown Point, Indiana. Born on the 23rd of September, 1938 in Kragujevac, Serbia. Loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away peacefully at his home with family by his side on Friday October 8th. Radmilo emigrated to the U.S. in 1965, became a U.S. citizen, and established roots in Northwest Indiana. He was a retired steelworker with 37 years of service at U.S. Steel, Gary Works.
Radmilo was a member of St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Merrillville, Indiana and was well-known in the community. A lifelong soccer enthusiast, he was also a member of Avala Soccer Club for many years and enjoyed playing in his youth, as well as coaching and staying active. After retirement, Radmilo stayed busy by gardening and tending to his large fruit orchards with his wife Mimi. When he wasn’t busy with his horticultural interests, he would care for his honey bees and enjoyed his retirement hobby of beekeeping. Being a life-long learner and doer, there wasn’t much he couldn’t do.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Paun and Borika Radojicic. He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Milovanka “Mimi” Radojicic, his sons Milan, Nenad (Tami) and Tomislav as well as his grandchildren Stevan (18) and Tijana (15). Radmilo also had an extensive network of family and friends in Serbia and here in the U.S. He was well loved and will be dearly missed by many.
