Robert L. Denz


Robert L. Denz, 81, of New Berlin, found peace Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013.


He was the beloved husband and best friend of Patricia (nee Downie) Denz for 51 years. Bob is further survived by two sisters, Carol (Richard) Bachmann and Mary (the late Jerry) Maule; brother, Jack (Mary) Denz; brother-in-law, George (Helen) Downie; uncle, Ed (June) Denz; seven nephews; four nieces; two close nieces, Colleen and Megan Downie; and many great-nieces and -nephews, other relatives and friends.


He was preceded in death by his brother, Donald Denz.


Robert was a proud U.S. Army veteran and served in the Korean war.


He was a kind, gentle, man and gifted carpenter. Robert was a special friend to any and all he knew. He never bragged, even though he was regularly a better golfer/bowler than his brother-in-law, George. He will be greatly missed.
