Robert Graebel Obituary
Graebel, Robert "Bob"

Robert Ehrhard Walter Graebel, Jr., age 63, of Wausau, passed away peacefully Thursday, March 20, 2014 at his home, surrounded by his family, after a fierce battle with cancer. He was born April 1, 1950 in Wausau, WI, son of the late Robert and Monica (Koehler) Graebel, Sr.

Bob was a 47 year practitioner of the Japanese martial art aikido. He was a beloved instructor who touched many lives. An avid blues enthusiast and guitarist, Bob gave of himself and his talents selflessly. Bob was a loving husband and father and an amazing grandfather-always willing to get down on the floor and play with the kids. Bob was well known for his smart-aleck humor and sarcastic wit.

Bob is survived by his wife, Susan, and step-daughter, Hannah, his three children, Vanessa Meyer, Katherine (Zakaria) Graebel-Khandakani and Robert Graebel IV, eight grandchildren, and two brothers, Donald and Jerry (Merle) Graebel.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

A celebration of Bob's life will be held Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 12:00 P.M. at New Hope Methodist Church, 1950 Dickinson Rd., De Pere, WI. Friends and family may call from 11:00 A.M. until time of service at the church.

"He was a wonderful man and a blessing on his parentage."
