John W. Neumann Jr.

Mt. Calvary - John W. Neumann Jr, 75, of Log Tavern Road, Mount Calvary died on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at Hospice Home of Hope in Fond du Lac.

He was born October 23, 1943 in Illinois, the son of John W. and June (McLain) Neumann.

On September 24, 1965 John was wed to Sue Ann Palkovich in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sue proceeded him in death May 25, 2015.

Mr. Neumann graduated from St Mary's Springs in 1962. Following graduation, John enlisted and served with the Army Reserves.

John spent his working career with the family owned business, RB Royal Industries (initially Royal Brass Inc.). He served as the Company President and ultimately CEO until his time of retirement. John was very active in our community. He shared a great devotion and generosity to Fond du Lac. He was a member of the Elks, Evening Optimist, and The Kentucky Colonels.

John had a love for aviation. He obtained his private pilot's license with an instrument rating and enjoyed attending the EAA. He was an avid outdoorsman including hunting and fishing. John had a deep passion for land conservation. Some of his greatest enjoyment came from developing his land with trees, ponds, and the animals that shared the acreage.

John's greatest commitment in life was to that of his family. He held a deep, close connection with them. His happiest moments were those spent with his wife, children and grandchildren. Survivors include four children; Andrew J. Neumann (Mary Berenz), John (Jay) W. Neumann IV (Mary Jo Neumann), Laura L. Jagdfeld (Fred Jagfeld), Daniel J. Neumann (Tony Chavez). Four grandchildren; Adria Church, John W. Neumann V, Joseph A. Neumann, Alyssia G. Jagdfeld, and Hunter L. Jagdfeld. Two great-grandchildren; Audrey Strook, and Carter Strook.
