Robert D. Holtz, 88

Robert D. Holtz, of Hartland, passed away Jan. 9, 2019, at the age of 88. He was born July 6, 1930, and was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ruth (nee Bunke), and stepdaughter, Wendy. He was the cherished father of Cheryl L. Schaumberg of Independence, Brian D. of Merton, and Scott R. of Fort Myers, Florida; loving stepfather of Kurt, Eric and Ann; and loving grandfather of Kyle, Konnor, Jill and Jason. He is further survived by great-grandchildren; nephews, Rick and Joe Riefel; stepson, Dave Birkle; and other relatives and friends.

The family would like to extend a grateful, “Thank You!” to the Bunke family for their constant support, care and love. We are truly blessed to have family such as this. Also, the family would like to thank Bob’s neighbors for their help and kindness.

Bob served in the Army during the Korean War. He was a local truck driver by trade and, in the later years, served as a bailiff at the Greenfield Police Department. He loved lighting his home seasonally, loved watching and caring for the birds, loved to go out to eat, loved flirting with the ladies, and “everything else.”

Visitation will be Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Wisconsin Memorial Park — Chapel of Flowers (13235 W. Capitol Drive, Brookfield, WI 53005) from noon until the time of the funeral service at 2 p.m.
