Gregory P. Maternowski
Age 53, of Canton. My “Greggie” went to his home in heaven on Friday Nov. 6, 2015. He is finally out of pain and at peace. Born in Milwaukee, Wis., he had worked at Goss International. He attended the Basilica of St. John the Baptist, was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Council #4535, K of C, Maps Air Museum, N.R.A. and a life time member of A.B.A.T.E. He was preceded in death by his father, John Maternowski and father-in-law, Thomas Lundquist.
He is survived by his wife, Kimberly (Lundquist) Maternowski of the home; sons, Aaron (Amanda) Barr, Thomas Barr, daughter, Letitia (Mike) Butler all of Canton; brothers, Phil (Lynn) Maternowski of Celina, Texas, Paul Maternowski of West Allis, Wis., Matt Maternowski of Waukesha, Wis.; sisters: Danette (Jeff) Karls of Fisher, Pa., Andrea (Jeff) Crotteau of Stevens Point, Wis.; grandchildren, Xander, Carson, Brayden, Anakin and Landon.
A funeral service will be held on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. in the Basilica of St. John the Baptist with Deacon Carl Burkhardt officiating. Friends may call Tuesday evening from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Wackerly Funeral Home. There will be a Our Lady of Lourdes Council #4535, K of C prayer service Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the funeral home. Gregory had a wonderful sense of humor, and there wasn't machine he couldn't fix! He was more proud of his children, nieces and nephews. He worked hard and played hard and will be sorely missed by so many. Now he can root for our Green Bay packers from the best seat there is. And watch over his grandsons from heaven. Rest easy my love, until we are together again. Donations may be made in his name to the Wounded Warriors Fund or Maps Air Museum.

Kim,
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear Greg. He was a good friend of my son's. Greg had to travel to Charlotte NC a couple of times when he and my son were working for Goss. He came to my house while he was here and we always enjoyed his visits.
May God stay with you and give you His comfort.

I have fond memories of my younger cousin Greg arriving for visits and immediately asking me to take him to the swimming pool. At the pool, he would launch his infamous "cannonball" leap from the diving board, in the direction of the lifeguard who sat in an elevated chair. "Success" was measured by the top of the splash wetting the lifeguard. Then, with a beaming smile on his face, he would accept the congratulatory 5-minute pool timeout from the lifeguard.

Greg's favorite spot seemed to be the railroad yard switching tower-house, in Neenah, Wisconsin. The old railroad guys loved young Greg's focus and desire to learn the duties of a Yardmaster. The excitement of hundreds of tons of locomotive causing a mini-earthquake intimidated me, and provided him with a great thrill.

Memories... Thoughts... Blessings... To wife, mother, children, and siblings.

I've known Greg and Kim for about 9 years and it breaks my heart to see such a nice man not be around anymore. I'll always remember a very kind man that loved his family and would do anything to help a person out. I'll miss the conversations in the garage once a month but will also feel better knowing your pain is gone and you are at peace! RIP Greg!Erik(The Schwan Food Compay) 11-10-15

Dear Kim and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Greg for his humor and his very hard work. In anything he did he strived and achieved excellence. There was just no other way possible for him but to push for 100% in whatever he did in life. He will be missed and always remembered.

Greg was my best friend in high school. I'll share a funny memory. We were both huge Ted Nugent fans. We met at Tumblebrook Country Club working in the kitchen. I dared Greg to drink a bottle of ketchup and I would pay for his ticket to the concert in Madison. He had to keep it down for an hour. He did. We drove to Madison in a blizzard in his souped up Duster. What a car that was. How we made it to the concert and back home again is a miracle. May you RIP buddy. Greg could fix anything and would do anything for someone in need. He had a huge heart. See you on the other side bud. My condolences to Kim and the friends and family.
