Bartz, Robert "Bob"|
Robert "Bob" Bartz went to his eternal home on Saturday, August 9th at the age of 88 years. Bob was born in Suring, Wisconsin on September 27th, 1925 to the late Paul and Emma (Schoessow) Bartz.
Bob graduated from St. John's Lutheran School at Hayes, Wisconsin and later at Suring High School in 1944. He was drafted into military service and served in the US Navy from 1944 until 1946.
After his military service he enrolled at Marquette University in January 1947 and graduated from Valparaiso University in 1951 with a bachelor's degree in business and political science.
After graduation he served briefly as acting alumni secretary at his alma mater and became associated with Aid Association for Lutherans (now Thrivent for Lutherans) as a sales representative.
Bob married the love of his life, Alice at Messiah Lutheran Church in Chicago in 1952.
In 1954 he began a 32 year career as personal director for three local companies.
Bob had a long standing interest in aviation and held membership in both the local and national experimental aircraft associations and the local model flying club. Fishing in Canada with brothers and friends for 25 years were lasting wonderful memories.

Bob was the last survivor of the Paul and Emma Bartz family. He was preceded in death by his three brothers Harold, Roland and William and two sisters Elda Truebenbach and Rufina Schuettpelz.
He was very proud of the accomplishments of his many nieces and nephews who live from Hawaii to the eastern U.S.
