Galbari, Gregory (Greg)  
Galbari, Gregory (1952-2015) Gregory Stephen Galbari, Age 63, of Plymouth Wisconsin, joined hands with the Lord on the evening of April 25th, 2015 due to natural causes, while attending the Jefferson Swap Meet and Car Show, one of his most beloved hobbies. Greg, or "Chic", as he was known in high school, was born January 10, 1952 a son of the late Stephen and Charlotte (Landgraf) Galbari and was a proud lifelong resident of Plymouth. He attended St. John the Baptist Grade School and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1970. On June 18th, 1977 he was married to Julie Ann Bonnett and was later blessed with three daughters, whom he deeply cherished. Shortly after high school, he was employed by Kraft Foods. After years of service to Kraft, he was promoted to the Storage Plant Manager, where he remained until its closing in 1998. Naturally, Greg wasn't ready to quit the workforce and had several more jobs including Gritt's Auto Service and Wel Companies, "to supply his hobbies" until he recently retired from Masters Gallery Foods in January of 2015. A strong work ethic was only one of Greg's endearing qualities. Besides his work, Greg loved people. He was a big-hearted brother, father, uncle, grandfather and friend who selflessly helped others at the drop of a hat. He gave unconditionally to those who needed it. He was an instant friend to anyone he met, and he appreciated the small community of Plymouth that provided the opportunity to catch up with buddies while out and about. Greg treasured the time he spent with his siblings, daughters, grandchildren and friends as well as the travels that ensued. When not with family he was an avid car collector and miniature bowler. He is survived by his three daughters; Jamie (Matt) Jenkins of San Diego, Katie Galbari of Plymouth and Jennifer (Richard) Allen of North Port, FL and five grandchildren; Taylor, Hunter, Keira, Greyson, and Benjamin. He is also survived by four siblings; Roger (Linda) Galbari of Plymouth, Steff (John) Campbell of Prescott, AZ, Salli Galbari of Plymouth, and Stephen (Sarah) Galbari of Plymouth. He was preceded in death by his parents: Stephen and Charlotte Galbari. Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday evening (April 30) at 5:30 P.M. at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Plymouth. Father Dan Volkert, pastor of the church will officiate. Cremation will follow the services. Relatives and friends may call at the CHURCH on Thursday from 2:00 P.M. until the time of services. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Greg's Name. The Suchon Funeral Home and Cremation Services is serving the family. For online condolences, please visit www.suchonfh.com .

Grollmus, Joel R.  
Grollmus, Joel Ralph January 11, 1948 - April 17, 2015 Joel passed away peacefully from metastatic cancer at his home in American Canyon, CA, with his life partner, Karen Brorby, and longtime friend, Margie Jaeger Apodaca at his side. Many other friends and loved ones were able to share loving thoughts with Joel during his last days, bringing him great peace and comfort. Joel was born on January 11, 1948, in Appleton, WI, to Rev. August and Evelyne Grollmus. Joel grew up and spent more than half his life in the Sheboygan area. He graduated from Sheboygan North High in 1966 and from Lakeland College in 1970, with a degree in Business Administration. Sheboygan is also where Joel's lifelong love of music began and by his teenage years he was playing in local bands. Over more than 25 years, he played bass guitar with local groups including the West Georgian Tea Company, Boogieman, the Buffalo Joe Band, and Sunblind Lion. Joel held so many of the musicians he played with in extremely high regard and cherished the friendships he nurtured with all who shared his love of music. Joel's other love in life was cooking which was greatly influenced by his mother's wonderful German specialties. While living in Sheboygan, Joel treated friends and family to his developing cooking interests and in 1988, Joel relocated to California to attend the San Francisco Culinary Academy where he graduated and also taught. He spent a number of years working in acclaimed restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as launching a very successful catering business. In 1992, he met his true love and soulmate, Karen Brorby, who lived and worked at his side for the rest of his life. In 2002 they opened their first café together, Mt. Tam Café and in 2005 their second, Café Joel, in Novato, California. Joel is survived by his sister, JoAnne Bode, brother, John Grollmus MD, and their respective families, daughter, Gwen Maas and stepdaughter, Crystal Cook and their families. Joel leaves behind many loving friends from both the Sheboygan and San Francisco Bay area, which are too numerous to mention. Very special thanks go out to all who gave their loving and generous support to Joel and Karen during the past year. And a special heartfelt gratitude to Mike and Joy Johnston, Scott Hildebrand and Donna Brorby for all their love and caring. A Celebration of Life/Memorial Concert will be held on Sunday, May 17, at Jakum's Hall, 2601 North 15th Street, Sheboygan at 1 p.m. Cards and donations to assist Joel's family with recent medical expenses may be written to: 'Joel Grollmus & Karen Brorby' and brought to the memorial/ concert or sent to: Karen Brorby, 132 San Marco Way, American Canyon, CA 94503.
