Robert Carter Hein Obituary
Hein, Robert Carter

Robert Carter Hein, 88, Green Bay, passed into the Kingdom of God on Monday, March 31, 2014, at Aurora BayCare Medical Center. He was born February 19, 1926, in Seymour, the son of Robert George and Edith Eleanor (Carter) Hein. On May 5, 1951, Bob was united in marriage to his forever soul mate, Agnes Marie Kroner.

He served his country in the U.S. Navy, training to be a pilot during World War II. Bob was an accomplished civil engineer, having graduated from Marquette University in 1951. His career began with the Wisconsin D.O.T. He went on to work for the John F. Bloomer Company, Brebner Machinery, C. Reiss Coal Company and ultimately achieved his dream of owning his own company, Reliance Construction, which he successfully operated until age 73. Bob's career included serving as president of Wisconsin Roadbuilders Association, and serving on numerous other boards and committees in the road construction industry.

He was devoted to his faith and his family. Bob and Agnes were charter members of St. Agnes Parish where he was active on parish council and on various committees.

For forty years, Bob enjoyed the log cabin he built on Lake Hilbert, cherishing the times spent with family and friends. His woodworking hobby produced countless heirlooms treasured by family and friends. Bob was a sportsman who enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors and genuinely appreciated God's gift of nature.

His true legacy is his loving family who truly adored him! Bob is survived by his loving soul mate, Agnes, and their five children, Beth (Jim) Scalish, Steve (Janet) Hein, Cindy (Paul) Westin, Mary (Randy) Siegler, Jim (Ann) Hein; their four grandchildren, Alex (Rachel) Scalish, Peter Scalish, Joel (Bridget) Hein, Courtney (Matthew) Juedes; their five great-grandchildren, MacKenzie and Ryleigh Scalish, Owen, Teddy and Will Hein; two sisters and one brother, Carol Carnahan, Shirley (Nathan) Finch, and William (Lee) Hein, and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by two sisters, Betty Hafenbrack and Marge Hein.
