I did not know he was called. We fell out of touch some years ago. Not until yesterday when I got a magazine from one my former colleges. The whole world lost one of the best men I've ever had the privilege to know next to my little man (we lost my son in 2011). You would never know his life contributions to benefit others to meet him. He was a very humble man. He made time for people from all walks of life. He was very caring toward my children and often made time to offer guidance for our future. He helped shaped my dreams, goals and direction for eduction both in a formal manner and in life. This was in addition to managing huge accomplishments in business and caring for his family when he was not swinging a hammer for Habitat for Humanity. I hope he sometimes visits with Zach and shares his wisdom in their new home. My deepest condolences go out to his beloved family and friends. He often shared how much he treasures you. ?
To the Leverenz greater family, I may be too late to offer my appreciation and condolenscences. However, I would like to express my appreciation for Bob's life and his love for God and man. Even though I didn't know him personally, he knew of me and encouraged me through others in my professional life. It would be too lengthy to explain, but my appreciation for God's kingdom is greater because of him. Blessings.
Phyllis, I am so sorry you have lost your brother Bob, but he lived a long and fruitful life and is in God's graces and hands now.
My heartfelt condolences to the Leverenz family -- Bob was a most genuine and truly committed gentleman in all of his undertakings in life, his faith, his family and to Kiwanis.
We will miss you Bob. From all of us, Jeff, and Rebecca Scherr( daughter of Thomas R. Jarrell, Pastor of St. Luke United Methodist Church in Sheboygan from 1978-1990.) Thank-you for all that you did for us, and our family. Also, grandchildren of Tom Jarrell, Chris Scherr of Green Bay, Wi. and Cassie Scherr of Sheboygan.
