Obituary

Russell John Lemke of Random Lake ended his 6 yearlong battle with cancer on January 31, 2021. With his wife, Debra by his side, he went to visit his son Shane in Heaven. He was born on November 7, 1959 to Warren and Norma (Didier) Lemke.

Russ was a graduate of Kewaskum High in 1977 and went on to Tech school for Auto Body. He ended his Auto body career, after 35 years at Bob Fish in West Bend. He also used his magic on Austin Luedtke’s (#6) race cars, where he was Austin’s spotter, body man and friend. Russ also enjoyed his motorcycles and being the Vice President of the “Ozaukee Guzzlers Motorcycle Club”, where he enjoyed his name of “Moose”. He later joined their Trap shooting team, where he made many more friends.

Russ married Debra Schultz on August 2, 1986 in St Martins Church in Fillmore. Russ and Deb built a beautiful cabin up north, where Russ enjoyed hunting, snowmobiling, ATV riding, canoeing, fishing and shooting guns. He enjoyed having friends and family over, especially spending time with the kids.

Russ is survived by his wife of 34 years Debra, daughter-in-law Jeni Lemke Andrews (Mitch). His father Warren Lemke, brothers Kevin Sr. (Jan) and Todd Lemke. father-in-law Donald Schultz, sibling-in-laws Cindy Boylen, Don (Ginger) Schultz, Chris (Allen)Tackes, nephew and nieces, Kevin Jr.(Erin) and Cody (Sonja) Lemke, Brandon and Brittney Lemke, Steven (Erica) Schultz, Jennifer (Grant) Greenfield, Roechelle (Logan) Boschae, Robert Tackes, Carly Schultz, great-nephews and niece Liam Lemke, Bensen and Darcy Boschae, and Russ’s beloved dog Shiloh. Special Friends: Sammy and Blake Andrews and Bryce, Rob and Kathy, and many-many more. Godchildren, Mark Weinreich and Elizabeth Lemke.

Russ was preceded in death by his mother Norma, son Shane, nephew David Lemke, mother-in-law Karen Schultz, brothers-in-law Mike Schultz and Jim Boylen.

The family would like to thank the Kraemer Cancer, Dr Burfield, Dr Longo and all the nurses and staff at Synergy Home Care and Heartland Hospice nurse Lisa for all the care they gave to Russ.

Our heartfelt condolences to Debra and all of Russ' family and friends. We only had a few short days with him but he made a big impression upon us. We loved hearing his stories about hunting trips and time spent up north building their second home. We were honored to have met him and to have been welcomed into the Lemke home. Jenni and Jack
