On June 13, 2021, Milton F VandenBosch, 90, went to meet his Savior and be reunited with his bride at the gates of heaven. Milton was born to Frank and Mary VandenBosch on Sept 13, 1930, in Kaukauna, where he lived most of his life. He met his wife, Martha J VanGrinsven, through a family member and they married on Sept 1, 1951. He worked at Thilmany Pulp and Paper for more than 42 years, as well as part-time at Kaukauna Hardware, where he learned so many skills and trades that he used to help his family and others. His family was always his priority.
Milton enjoyed many things before and during his long retirement. He loved to spend time with his grandchildren. He loved fishing, golfing, cottaging, vacationing with family and friends, new cars, a good steak and an occasional beer. He also enjoyed sharing his passion of DIY with others.
Milton is preceded in death by his wife Martha, daughter Carol, daughter-in-law Debra, his parents, a brother, 2 half-sisters and other family members.
He is survived by his 5 remaining children: Leann (James) Wrobel, Thomas VandenBosch, Susan (Steven) Rammer, Jane (Douglas) Schneider and Paul (Michelle) VandenBosch; 9 grandchildren: Julie (Eric) McLain, Amy (Jeremy) Miller, Nicole (John) McKinnon, Jacalyn (Jeremy) Baumgart, Daniel (Caity) Rammer, Aaron (special friend Shanda) Schneider, Ashley VandenBosch, April Schneider and Jennifer VandenBosch; and 10 great-grandchildren: Kalissa, Julia, Lauren, Avery, Maxwell, Alexander, Anastasia, Jonah, Amalia and Jayla. He is also survived by 2 brothers and a sister, nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Sandy and Sue, Heartland Hospice, Kaukauna Clinic, Deacon Steve, the wonderful neighbors and many others who provided support while he remained in the home.
