Robert Feldmann

Robert Feldmann, 94, went peacefully to the Lord on May 24, 2020 at the Waterford in Plymouth where he resided.

He was born Nov. 4, 1925, son to the late Michael and Alverta Feldmann. On Feb. 10, 1945 he married Joyce Schmahl. The couple raised five children and lived most of their lives in Elkhart Lake.

Robert worked for many years for the Sheboygan County Highway Department until his retirement. He was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Elkhart Lake where he served as an usher. Bob also served on the Elkhart Lake Fire Department for many years.

He enjoyed his family fishing weekend, hunting with family until his early 80s, playing cards (especially sheepshead) with his family and at the fire station, watching Packer games, and going to the stock car races in Plymouth. He also enjoyed travelling. He loved going to Branson, taking a fall trip up north during cranberry harvesting and sight-seeing through Eagle River, and going to the Rhinelander Hodag Fest.

Bob loved to talk to people and was always there to help someone. He cherished spending time with his family during gatherings and holidays, and he took great pride in helping all his children when they bought homes and started their own families.

Survivors include his wife of 75 years, Joyce; two sons, Roger (Mary Sue) of Wauwatosa and Keith (Sue) of Frisco, Colorado; three daughters, Kathy (Frank) Seil of Plymouth, Janice Knecht of Plymouth, and Carol (Andrew) Perl of Elkhart Lake; 10 grandchildren, Deborah (Steve) Massmann, Scott (Leigh) Feldmann, Lisa Seil (fiancé Jeffrey Prust), Bradley (Holly) Knecht, Jessica Knecht (special friend Pat Brown), Melissa (Jacob) Kowalski, Bryan (Maria) Perl, Jason (Sarah) Perl, Anthony Feldmann (fiancée Anika McEwan), and Evan Feldmann; 18 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; sister Violet Brabender of Port Washington; and sister-in-law Sharon Schmahl of Plymouth.

He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
