Bintzler, Lloyd M. "Heine"
Lloyd M. "Heine" Bintzler, 86, of Sheboygan, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday evening, November 27, 2012 surrounded by his family in the loving arms of his eldest son.
Heine was born on August 24, 1926 in Port Washington, the son of the late Eli and Olive (Gruber) Bintzler. He attended schools in Random Lake following which he served in the U.S. Army Infantry during World War II
in the European Theater. On November 24, 1951 he was united in marriage to Maymie Smith in Plymouth. He worked at the Sheboygan Foundry and Gray Austin Foundry until his retirement. He was also well known as a bartender at several establishments over the years, making many new friends. He has touched so many lives and will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He lived his life to the fullest with no regrets. He greatly treasured and enjoyed time with family and friends which included fishing, hunting, sporting events and other activities. He greatly enjoyed the time spent at the family cabin up north where he proudly watched his family, his greatest legacy. One of his favorite sayings was "If you don't' have a good time there is no one to blame but yourself." His family is especially thankful for the two years of memories they were able to enjoy following his heart attack on New Years Eve, 2010. This would not have been possible if not for the aide of the City of Sheboygan emergency response team. This gave him the opportunity to spend time with his great grandson.
He was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and the VFW
Wolf-Olson Post 1230. He enjoyed his breakfast time with family and friends at Arabellas's and Bill's Corner Café.
Heine is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Maymie; his sons, Mark (Wanda) Bintzler and Dale (Julee) Bintzler both of Sheboygan; a daughter, Kay (Tim) Hill of Sheboygan; his grandchildren, Stacy Bintzler, Ashly (Nate) Schmidt, Joshua Bintzler, Erin Bintzler, Justin, Travis and Tyler Hill; his first great grandson, Conway Schmidt; and his sisters, Delores (Merlin) Miller of Glenbeulah, Lilly (Lee) Kappel and Diane (Merlin) Hammen, both of Adell. He is further survived by several nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law and other family members. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his twin son, Dean Bintzler and sisters, Lorraine Gonwa and Margaret Schroeter.
A Mass of Christian Burial for Heine will be celebrated 6 p.m., Friday, November 30 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church with Rev. Daniel Lasecki and Very Rev. John Hemsing concelebrating.
