Roy A. Garbisch, 59|
Roy A. Garbisch, 59, of the town of Auburn, passed away unexpectedly on
Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, at his home.
He was born on April 26, 1953, in Sheboygan, the son of Kenneth and
Bernice (Klein) Garbisch, and on Aug. 20, 1994, he was united in
marriage to Tamala “Tammy” Seefeldt in Waupaca. Tammy preceded Roy in
death on June 27, 2005.
Roy and Tammy were the former owners and operators of the Silver Platter
Family Restaurant in Kewaskum. Roy was a member of the Fisherman’s Road
Fishing Club and a former member of the Campbellsport Sportsman’s Club.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at the cabin Roy and his
friends built. Roy was an avid NASCAR fan and will fondly be remembered
as “Mr. Fix It” as he could fix, build and improvise anything.
Roy and Annette dated when they were younger. Life took them in
different directions and they found each other again after 35 years. Roy
touched the lives of many people and will be deeply missed by Annette,
his family and by all who knew him.

Darryl, Doug, Dorie and Dave, great-nieces and nephews, other relatives,
