Bobby Illing passed away Friday, Sept. 26, 2008, at age 23, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Typical of his determination, Bobby was able to graduate with his friends from Waukesha West in 2003 despite many challenges. Bobby also worked at the local Jewel-Osco and Sentry food stores.
He loved shooting pool, watching the Packers, fishing, playing poker, knee boarding and water skiing. He also loved spending time with his family and going to family events.
Bobby will be missed by his parents, Jack (Kim) and Heidi; siblings, Elizabeth (Ben) Fuller, Rachel, Jake and Jamie; grandparents, Bob and Becky and Milt and Trudy Knuijt; along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. until the 5:30 p.m. funeral service Tuesday, Sept. 30, at Becker Ritter Funeral Home, 14075 W. North Ave., Brookfield. Private interment will be at Highland Memorial Park.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Thank you Dr. Kristi and all the health care providers including Heartland Hospice for all your special care for Bobby.
