Obituary Condolences

Daun, Robert J.

Robert J. Daun, age 63, of New Holstein, passed away Sunday, April 13, 2014, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton.

He was born August 19, 1950, in Fond du Lac to the late Herman & Erma (Bittner) Daun. He graduated from New Holstein High School in 1968. On January 26, 1973, he married Betsy Simaz in Benton Harbor, MI.

Robert worked at Buechel Stone Corp. since 1977.

Robert loved to go Sturgeon spearing and deer hunting. During the summer you would find him in the back yard sitting at the picnic table visiting with the neighbors. He enjoyed grilling out; his specialty was turkey.

He was an avid sport fan. He followed the Brewers, Badgers, and the Packers. Robert also belonged to some area sport clubs, the Outdoors Inc., the Brothertown Fishing Club, and the New Holstein Athletic Club.

Robert had a good sense of humor. He was forever joking around and giving friends and family a hard time. If he was SLOWLY driving around in his green Ford pickup and saw someone he knew a wave was always sent their way.

Survivors include his wife, Betsy; his two sons, Jeffrey Daun and Richard Daun, both of New Holstein; his sister, Arlene Woelfel of Lansing, MI; his brother, Paul (Mary Ann) Daun of Chilton; his brother-in-law, David (Peg) Simaz of Benton Harbor, MI; and further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Herman & Erma Daun; and his father-in-law & mother-in-law, William & Dorothy Simaz.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church 1724 Madison Street New Holstein, WI 53061. Rev. Harold Berryman will officiate with Deacon Pat Knier assisting. Burial will be in the parish cemetery.

Family and friends may call at the Sippel Funeral Home 2618 Altona Avenue New Holstein, WI 53061 on Tuesday, April 22nd from 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM and again at the funeral home Wednesday morning, April 23rd from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM when brief rites will be held.
