Robert “Bob” F. Schotzko, age 87, passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 21, 2020 at his home in West Bend with his family. He was born on April 27, 1932 in Eau Claire, WI to Frank and Lydia (nee Maerz) Schotzko. He loved deer hunting, both gun and archery, and continued to be a crackerjack shot with his cross bow. Bob’s greatest joy was hunting with his son’s Bobby and Skip and the grandchildren at Skip’s cabin in Bayfield where lots of hunting stories were told and great memories were made. He was proud of teaching his children and grandchildren how to hunt and watching them all get their first deer. Bob and his wife, Marie enjoyed spending time at their cabin in Crivitz, just watching the deer and playing cards with close friends. Bob was an avid artist with WI landscapes being his passion. He also enjoyed watching the WI sports teams even though he “fired” all their coaches and managers numerous times! He was always so proud of all his children and grandchildren, bragging whenever he got the chance. He loved being with his family, especially when everyone was together.

Bob is survived by his children, Catherine (T.R.) Cook Larson, Jane (Paul) Dempsey, Sally (Dan) King, Skip (Christy) Meider, Robert (Diane) Schotzko, Diane (Chris) Riechers; grandchildren, Shane (Rhonda) Cook, Heather (Dino) Dempsey-Speranza, Harley (Roxane Frank) Dempsey, Ryan King, Amy Botz, Meghan (Sam) Katz, Robert Jr. (Emily) Schotzko, Katelyn (Matt) Schotzko-Hayes, Russell Robbins, Michael Robbins, Patrick (Bonnie) Riechers; 16 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandson; 2 sisters Marie Schotzko and Doris Brown and a sister-in-law Carol Pickerign. He is further survived by nieces, other relatives and friends.

Bob is preceded in death by the love of his life, Marie (nee Kalk), daughter Julie Schotzko, granddaughter Misty Marie, his parents, brothers-in-laws Bob Pickerign and Don Brown and many great friends.

Due to CDC restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

A special thank you to Omicron Family Restaurant in West Bend his favorite place, his art teacher Marilyn Lindemann, a special friend and to the staff of Kettle Moraine Gardens in Kewaskum, for their kindness and compassion to his sister, Marie.
