Frank John Feucht, 68 |
Nov. 21, 1950 -- Jan. 19, 2019
Frank John Feucht, 68, of Mayville, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019.
Frank was our hero, our rock. He was a husband, father and grandfather. He fought his cancer with strength and courage and never gave up the fight. He had so much to live for. He was so many things to so many people. The Lord finally granted him peace and called him home to heaven.
Frank was born Nov. 21, 1950, to George and Virginia Feucht in the town of Theresa. He graduated from Hartford High School with the class of 1968. Frank proudly served his country during the Vietnam War from 1969 to 1971. Before his honorable discharge in 1971, he received the Purple Heart for combat wounds, the Bronze Star for outstanding service with military operations against a hostile force and the Army Commendation Medal for Military Merit. Now 48 years later, Frank still battled the effects of that war, battling cancer due to Agent Orange. Frank was a member of the Fohl-Matin American Legion Post 483 in Allenton. Upon returning home from the war, Frank worked at a few jobs as a welder but settled into John Deere in Horicon where he work as a welder until he retired in 2009. After his retirement, he worked at Key Logo in Hartford as a delivery driver.
On May 13, 1972, Frank married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Wendy S. Koepsell. They raised four beautiful children and are blessed with 12 wonderful grandchildren. He was a wonderful father to the kids as they grew up, always coaching all their sporting events and never missing any activities or sporting events they were involved in. Then the grandchildren came and he so enjoyed spending time with them and going to as many activities that he possibly could. He was always there to baby-sit, read a book, do homework or pitch a few baseballs. He also loved to mentor other kids along with his own in all things sports. He coached little league baseball and softball and volunteered umpiring for many years in the Allenton youth softball program. Frank also was an avid Milwaukee Brewers fan and followed them faithfully. He also loved to hunt, fish and snowmobile.
Frank is survived by his wife of 47 years, Wendy ( nee Koepsell); his sons, Jason (Brenda) and Craig; his two daughters, Jennifer Roemer (Paul) and Brenda Grinwald (Eric); his 12 beautiful grandchildren, Tony Link, Dawson and Calvin Feucht, Jacob and Nora Feucht, Peyton, Ryan, Clayton and Allison Roemer, and Roman, Truman and Lincoln Grinwald; his mother, Virginia Feucht; his siblings, Dorothy Hagen (Jerome), Phyllis Radloff (Rodney), Susie Boehlen (Richard), Joanne Greuel (Larry), Mary Roecker (Steve), Marvin Feucht (Melanie) and Mike Feucht (Sheri); his siblings-in-law, Sandy Grulke (Fritz), James Koepsell (Jean), and Gary Koepsell (Chris); and many other dear relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, George; his mother- and father-in-law, Art and Marge Koepsell; and his nephew, Rick Boehlen.

God saw you getting tired; a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered come to me. A golden heart stopped beating, working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. Rest in peace Frank. We will miss you more than words can say.
