Robert “Bob” P. Hurzeler

Jun 20, 1933 - Sep 10, 2021

age 88, of Wausaukee, died peacefully at home on Friday September 10, 2021. He was born in Milwaukee on June 20, 1933; son of the late Paul {born in Switzerland} and Lois (Raash){born in Arizona} Hurzeler. Bob graduated from Pulaski High School, Milwaukee in 1951. At the age of 19 he was baptized a Catholic. From this time on, his faith was an integral part of his life. Bob joined the United States Navy in 1952 and was honorably discharged in 1957. Bob met the love of his life at St. Mary’s Hospital in Milwaukee, where Lynn was a nursing student and Bob was her patient. He married Lynn Spielvogel on January 16, 1960 and from this union they were blessed with five wonderful children. In 1995 Bob and Lynn moved to Wausaukee. He enjoyed woodworking, camping, gardening, hunting and planting trees. Bob had a love for music throughout his life. At a young age he played in the Grade School Band. Later in life, he and Lynn sang in the choir at St. Agnes Catholic Church and St. Margaret Catholic Church where they are members. He was an active member in the 3rd and 4th degree of the Knights of Columbus both locally and in Milwaukee. Bob was also involved in liturgy and choir at St. Agnes Catholic Church and was a member of the Lion’s Club.

Bob is survived by his wife Lynn and four children: Robert (Carolyn) Hurzeler, Rickey (Donna) Hurzeler, Jeffrey (Kim) Hurzeler, and Mary (Scott) Hocking as well as by 13 grandchildren: Marilyn, Christine, Eric, Nick (Christina), Luke (Naomi), Korie (Mike), Johnny (Brittney), Josh (Samantha), Katelyn, Jake (Abbey), Brian, Ashley, and Sarah: great grandchildren: Brooklyn, Kaydance, London, Grant, Boston, Bronx, Anna, Liam and Rickey; and daughter-in-law, Sue. He was preceded in death by his son, Brian and brother Dege “Tinker”.

We will be celebrating Bob’s life on Thursday, September 16th at St Agnes Catholic Church in Amberg. Visitation is from 10-12, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 12pm with Fr. David Schmidt officiating.  Bob will be laid to rest in the Amberg Cemetery with full military honors.

The Hurzeler family would like to thank all who were there for Bob and Lynn through this difficult time. Without the help of numerous caring St Agnes parishioners, a special neighbor, Darlene, the staff from Unity Hospice, especially Kimberly (CNA), and the many who showed their support through cards, meals and prayers, without whom this journey would have been unbearable.

Roubal Funeral Home of Wausaukee is assisting Bob’s family with arrangements.
