Robert ‘Bob’ Weyker


Robert “Bob” Weyker passed away at Harbor Campus in Port Washington after a 14-month battle with end-stage kidney disease on Thursday, April 11, 2019. He was 79 years old. 

Bob was born in the Town of Saukville on Sept. 21, 1939, to George and Eleanor (nee Buchholz) Weyker. 

Bob was employed at Gilson Brothers for 33 years. 

Prior to his employment, Bob served in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1964. 

Much of his time was spent volunteering, whether it was for a brat fry, Flag Day or other events. He was a patriotic man who was very proud to have been an American Legion member of the Fredonia Warren Kane Post 410 for more than 50 years. 

Bob had another love in life, which was his family. Although he did not have children of his own, he cared for his nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews as if they were his own. He was a giving, selfless man who willingly helped others with a smile on his face. He will be dearly missed. 

Bob is survived by his brothers Eugene (Darlene) Weyker and Ronald (Mary) Weyker; sister Virginella Klapat; nieces Stephanie (Jason) Elliott, Jennifer (Vladimir) Roman and Sharon Casper; nephews Brian (Linda) Weyker and Steve Casper; great-nieces and nephews Kian Elliott, Kyle Johnson, Kayla Johnson, Kameron Johnson, Kelsey Roman, Mitchell Weyker, Caitlyn Weyker and Luke Weyker; and special friend Rose Graham. 

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, sister Dorothy Foster and niece Michelle Weyker. 

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at Divine Savior Parish, Holy Cross Chapel, 5330, Hwy. B, Belgium, on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at 6 p.m. Father Neil Zinthefer will preside. 

Bob’s family will receive visitors from 3 p.m. until the Mass at 6 p.m. 

An American Legion walk-through will take place at 5 p.m. 

Bob will be taken to his final place of rest, St. Rose of Lima Cemetery in Fredonia, on Friday, April 26, 2019, at 10 a.m., where full military honors will be observed. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the American Legion Fredonia Warren Kane Post 410. 

Bob’s family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Fitzsimmons, Dr. Alfred, Sharon Trompeter RN, the staff at DaVita Dialysis Mill Street Clinic in Cedarburg, Aurora Medical Center in Grafton, the Harbor Campus staff and Seasons Hospice for all the care and compassion they provided Bob.
