January 31, 2023 – West Bend, Wi – There was a Celebration of Life held Monday afternoon for one of the titans of West Bend as Allan C. Kieckhafer was memorialized by friends and family at Fifth Avenue Methodist Church.
Two of the consistent characteristics mentioned about Allan C. Kieckhafer were his dedication to his wife Jean and the love of his family.
Allan was also a staunch supporter of various causes including the Boy Scouts of America, the Museum of Wisconsin Art, the local American Legion Post 483, and the community of West Bend, WI.
One of the pictures in a photo gallery of Allan’s life, tucked just inside the vestibule of the church, included a framed picture of Allan’s signature. It was his name, written in cursive and located in the tower at the Old County Courthouse across the street from the church. Adam Kieckhafer said they often joked with his grandfather that he defaced government property when he was 12 years old.
