Glenn Kemnitz Sr.

January 13, 1939 ~ December 26, 2020 (age 81)


Glenn Robert Kemnitz Sr., age 81 of Westfield passed away Saturday evening, December 26, 2020 at Divine Savior Hospital in Portage.  Glenn was born at home in Town of Springfield, Marquette County to Hugo and Ella (Lange) Kemnitz on January 13, 1939.  He married Suzanne Jandos at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Richford and together they had four children.  Glenn and Suzanne moved to Harrisville for a short time until returning to Springfield to continue farming.  Glenn held several other jobs throughout his life but farming was his passion.  He always stayed busy tinkering, doing mechanic work and was also an avid reader.  Glenn will be remembered for hard days worked, cold beer, always enough candy to share and the love of family gatherings.

Glenn is survived by his wife of 61 years, Suzanne and four children: Glenn Jr. (Tami) of Westfield, Peggy (Brian) Russell of Oxford, Margery (Larry) Budiac of West Bend and Mary (Denny Cochrane) Kemnitz of Westfield as well as eight grandchildren: Jeremy (Cari), Amanda, Hanna (Travis), Mayghan, Lukas, Michael (Stephanie), Ashley (Donald), and Douglas and ten great-grandchildren: Wesley, Carmen, Lucius, Layla, Tori, Isaiah, Hayden, Aaron, Logan and Claire.   He is also survived by one brother, LeRoy (Patti) and sisters-in-law: Ann Kemnitz, Lillian Kemnitz and Beverly Kemnitz.  Glenn is further survived by in-laws and other extended family members.

Glenn is preceded in death by his parents, Hugo and Ella, and siblings: Howard, Elmer (Josephine), Arden, Melvin, Eldon, Lydia (Lester) Nelson and Alvina (Wallace) Rozek.
