Jon Timm Hetzel


Jon Timm Hetzel left our world for a better place on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, at the Northwest Medical Center in Tucson, Ariz.

He was born to John and LaVerne (nee Timm) Hetzel on Jan. 5, 1951.

Jon is dearly missed by his daughter, Mackensey of Sahuarita, Ariz., and his brand new granddaughter, Averi. He also leaves his loving sister and brother-in-law, Marilyn and Dave Dondlinger of West Bend. He is survived by nieces and nephews who loved him and will miss him, Tim (Mary) Dondlinger, Jane (Dave) Baumgartner, Kristin (Mike) Kohn, Steve (Stephanie) Mayer, Andrew (Heather Kos) Dondlinger and Kara (Todd) Guise; as well as great-neices and great-nephews; other relatives and friends, especially Chuck Birbeck.

Jon was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Patricia Mayer.

Jon was a member of the U.S. Air Force, attended the University of Wisconsin-Washington County, South Dakota University of Mines and Technology and just retired from the U.S. Postal Service. Jon enjoyed delivering mail to everyone on his routes and cared about all of them.

A memorial gathering will be held Sunday, April 3, at 2 p.m. at the covered area by the pool in Jonís neighborhood, Casa de Abrego. Bring a chair if you so desire.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Jonís family would be greatly appreciated.

Jon will be missed by all who knew him. He was looking forward to enjoying his retirement with his many friends and family members. Jon asked us to remember, "Keep a smile on you face and always say hello to your neighbor."
