November 15, 2019 – Town of Trenton, WI – Julius Peter Waldkirch, 89, received his angel wings on Saturday, November 9, 2019. He was born in the Town of Trenton on August 4, 1930 to George and Mary (nee Wegener) Waldkirch, and was the third of eight children.
Julius attended Holy Trinity school in Newburg and was a graduate of West Bend High School. He proudly served his country for four years in the U.S. Air Force, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant. He was then employed by the A.O. Smith Corporation for thirty years and also worked the family farm. After retiring from A.O. Smith, Julius worked for Ozaukee County for 10 years driving clients to medical appointments.
Julius was a loving, thoughtful, and generous man who always put his family first. He was a hard worker with a huge heart, a quick wit, and a hilarious sense of humor. He enjoyed fishing, playing cards, bingo, word search puzzles, and of course, cheering on (and sometimes cursing out) the Green Bay Packers. He was a longtime member of the Fredonia Lions Club and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus.
Julius is survived by his children Renae Waldkirch, Jean (Patrick) Weymer, Kris (Jill) Becker, Brian (Kathy) Becker, Kirk (Terri) Becker, Renee (Harold) Denlow, and Julius G. (Judy Eguia) Waldkirch; grandchildren Noah Summerville, Bella Weymer, Alex Weymer, Melissa Rader, Julius P. Waldkirch II, Debra Jo Becker, Samuel Becker, Shannon (Sam) Dolezal, Kelly (Cole) Mathison, Megan (Nate) Evett, Karlee (Josh) Uttermark, Logan Becker (fiance Billy Tilot), Morgan Denlow, and Sydney Denlow, six great grandchildren; brothers Robert (“Joey”) Waldkirch and Peter (Ann) Waldkirch, sister Barbara Schlosser, and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Rosie, brothers Roman Waldkirch and Richard Waldkirch, sisters Georgia Muckerheide and Mary Biersack, and former wife Arlane Meneau.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 4PM on Friday, December 6 at Divine Savior – Holy Cross Chapel, 5330 Hwy B., Belgium. Father Gideon Buya and Father Tom Biersack will concelebrate. Julius will be laid to rest the next day in Holy Trinity Cemetery. The family will receive visitors at CHURCH on Friday from 2-4 p.m. at CHURCH.
