Robert Fieck Obituary

Robert James Fieck (Bob or Bubushka) passed away on Saturday, March 2 at the age of 77. Despite battling Alzheimer’s and bladder cancer for multiple years, Bob was still a very happy, positive, and loving person until he went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Bob was born on January 16, 1947, to Wilma (Weimann) and Robert Fieck in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He attended Trinity Lutheran School, Concordia High School in Nebraska and then graduated Sheboygan North High School in 1965. He excelled in football, basketball, and baseball during this time and was a natural all-around athlete in his youth. Bob joined the United States Coast Guard in 1965 and completed 20 years of successful service reaching the rank of (E-9) Master Chief. This involved travels to the Arctic Circle, Antarctica, and most of the major oceans, lakes and river systems protected by the United States. Bob saved numerous lives during his military career but attributes his decorated career to God and his dedicated wife Carol (Henderson) Fieck. He later fulfilled the dream of living on a hobby farm, started a new career at Plymouth Utilities and finally a leadership position at the Sheboygan Falls Utilities.  Bob and Carol later built a retirement home in Waupaca but then relocated to Kimberly to be closer to family.

Bob married the love of his life Carol Henderson on February 6, 1971. They had three children Robert Fieck lll, David Fieck, and John Fieck. He is survived by his daughter-in-law Stefanie (Wolf) Fieck Dawn (Siebers) Fieck, Sarah (Bolender) Fieck, grandchildren Mackenzie, Kolby, Brandon, Bailey, Joe, Asher, Allie, Charis, Eiren, Gracelyn, great grandchildren Bentley, Adah and Judah. Robert is also survived by his sister Mike and Kathy (Fieck) Vandekreeke and brother Steve and Nola Fieck along with numerous loved nieces and nephews.
