Stephen L. Stuck

Stephen L. Stuck, 72, of West Bend passed away on Monday, Sept. 19, 2006.

Stephen was born May 7, 1934, the son of Walter A. and Frances C. (nee Fischer) Stuck, in Milwaukee, where he was also raised. After his high school graduation, he went on to Boys Tech to further his education.

He began working in drafting for several years, until he put this aside and began a career in the United States military. Stephen served three terms with the Air Force Reserves and continued his service by reenlisting with the United States Navy. He was able to honorably enjoy a retirement from the military in Waukegan, Ill., and later in the West Bend area.

Throughout his military service and thereafter, Stephen had a great appreciation for photography. He also had a passion for his 1962 Bonneville, and a great love for his cat.

Stephen will be deeply missed by his dear brother and sister-in-law, Richard (Miriam) Stuck of Kohlsville; and his loving sister, Marilyn Roeber of West Bend. He will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, other very special relatives, and many dear friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Frances Stuck.
