Obituary for Robert "Bob" L. Weinzierl

Robert "Bob" L. Weinzierl was born November 12, 1930 to Christian and Elizabeth Weinzierl, the youngest of four sisters and four brothers. He graduated from Rocky Ridge Grade School and Frederic High School with the class of 1949.

He entered military service in 1952 during the Korean War and served in Germany as Communications Chief with the 42nd Anti Aircraft Battalion, 8th Army.

In August 1955, he married Helen Fischer of Frederic, and to that union they raised one son and two daughters.

Bob worked for the Frederic Phone Company from 1955-1987. After leaving the telephone company he worked for Young Construction until he retired. Bob spent 12 years as a trustee on the Frederic Village Board and was a volunteer firefighter for 26 years with the Frederic Rural Fire Department. During Bob's life he also volunteered as a Boy Scout leader and a hunter safety instructor.

Bob enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time in the outdoors. He loved spending time with his kids and grandkids. Bob was always available to help before ever being asked. He will be remembered by his unwavering character and conviction.

Bob was active in church life acting as sexton and an usher for decades. He enjoyed spending time with his friends in Bible study and whatever ensued afterwards (cards or dinner).
