THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Robert Heckl, 56, Suring passed away on Friday, Sept. 13, at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay.
Born Feb. 7, 1957 to the late Robert and Wedad (Kouri) Heckl, he married Rose Boerschinger on May 7, 1977 at St. Michael Catholic Church in Suring.
He enjoyed golfing and bowling, as many of his friends remember him as an ambidextrous bowler. He could comfort any screaming baby with his belly, always offered something to eat, so they never left hungry and was known for his famous Heckl Breakfast. He will be missed by many for his jokes and generosity.
He is survived by his wife, Rose of Suring; three children, Bobbie Jo (significant other, Raymond A. Sunderlage) Heckl and Steven (Michelle) Heckl, both of Suring and Lisa (Eric) Anderson of Gillett; two brothers, Phillip (Ericka) Heckl and William (Julia) Heckl, both of Suring; five grandchildren; seven sisters-in-law, Marie (William) Funderburg, Ann (Steve) Bayard, Joan Boerschinger, Marge (James) Knapp, Susan (Walter) Hopkins Louise (Nicholas) Marquardt and Barbara (Robert) Payette; a brother-in-law, Mathew (Victoria) Boerschinger; many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at Gruetzmacher Funeral Home in Suring on Saturday, Sept. 21, from noon until the memorial mass at 2 p.m. at St. Michael Catholic Church with Father David Barrett officiating. Gruetzmacher Funeral Home is assisting the family.
