Robert J. Bruckert, 64
Robert J. Bruckert, 64, of Pearson, formerly of Kewaskum and Nenno areas, died with his family by his side on June 21, 2010, at the VA Hospital in Madison from kidney and heart disease.
Bob was born on Sept. 19, 1945, in Fond du Lac to Marion Bruckert Krieser. In his teen years he helped his grandparents on their farm in Nenno. It was there that he became very close with Ginny Feucht and her family – friendships that are strong to this very day.
In October of 1963, Bob joined the U.S. Navy. He was stationed out of Long Beach, Calif., serving as a Seaman 2nd Class testing torpedoes. He was honorably discharged in 1967.
On Nov. 4, 1972, Bob and Jocelyn Fellenz were married at the Peace United Church of Christ in Kewaskum. On Dec. 3, 1973, their first daughter Kristen was born. On April 7, 1975, their second daughter April was born. In 1994 Bob was blessed with his first grandson, Jesse. In 1998 his "princess" Nolee arrived and in 2003 his namesake Robert was born. Bob spent many hours teaching the grandsons to fish and letting Nolee fix his hair to any style she wanted.
Bob was an over the road truck driver until 2000. He drove medical transport until 2004, retiring due to medical reasons.
Bob loved to hunt, fish, ride 4-wheelers and play the annual Christmas sheephead game. He was a devoted son, husband, father, brother and "Buppa."
Bob is survived by his wife of 37 years, Jocelyn; his daughter, Kristen (Kevin) Drewry of Fond du Lac; his daughter, April of Elmore; his grandchildren, Jesse, Nolee and Robert Drewry; and his loyal companion, Sammy. He is further survived by his mother, Marion of Campbellsport; his brothers, Fritz (Kathy) Krieser, Ken (Rogene) Krieser, Tom (Marianne) Krieser and Donald Krieser; his sister, Kathleen (Ringo) Mielke; many nieces, nephews and aunts. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Shirley Fellenz; and sistersin-law, Karen Fellenz, Kathe (Tom) Streveler and Tracy (Bruce) Boettcher. Bob was fortunate to have some lifelong friends, they include the Feucht family, Don and Char Waite, Paul Kearney, Jimmy Fellenz and family, John Warnecke and family, Tom Griep, Tom Gruel, Mike and Doug Feucht and others we may have forgotten.
He was preceded in death by his step-father, Ken Krieser; his maternal grandparents, Frank and Emma Bruckert; his father-in-law, Leander Fellenz; his godson, Jason Warnecke; a special little buddy, BJ Fichler; and other friends and family.
You’re right Dad – it’s hard to be humble when you are PERFECT in every way.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
