Milton "Mickey" F. O. Eberhardt was born on July 4, 1916 in Cedarburg, son of the late Henry and Minnie (nee Last) Eberhardt.

Mickey was a perfectionist - both at work and at home - and enjoyed providing for his family.

He gardened, landscaped and immaculately maintained the family houses and yards. Retiring from Grob, Inc. in Grafton after almost 40 years, Mickey pursued woodworking crafts with a passion. As a young man, he is remembered for teaching guitar. As "Grandpa," especially at the be-loved lakeside home in Wild Rose, he made certain his grandchildren had everything they needed for their enjoyment and to keep them occupied.

Mickey is survived by his wife of almost 67 years, Marie (nee Klauser); his sisters Dorothy (Elmer) Valoon of Cedarburg and Marilyn (Richard) Hahlbeck of South Milwaukee; his sister-in-law Gertrude (Trudy) Eberhardt of Milton; his children Janice (Ron) Ferris and David (Mary) Eberhardt of Grafton and Ron (Betsy) Eberhardt of Pierson, Mich.; and his grandchildren Mark Goodmanson, Lynn Pena, Timm Goodmanson, Scott Goodmanson, Chad Eberhardt, Jennifer Samerdyke, Todd Eberhardt, Amy Dulin, Catherine Eberhardt and William Eberhardt. He is further survived by 20 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Mickey was preceded in death by his brother Elroy and sister Leona (the late Milton) Theirfelder.
