Obituary

Robert "Bob" Herbert Rosanske, age 84 of Westfield, WI, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 12th, 2022 at Tivoli Nursing Home in Portage.

Bob was born on March 7th, 1938 in Portage, WI, the son of Herbert and Luella (Boelke) Rosanske. He grew up on his family farm and attended school in Packwaukee, WI. At 20, he married the love of his life Judy (Malson) Rosanske in Coloma, WI on December 20th, 1958. Together Bob and Judy spent 47 years together and had five children.  

Known for his strong work ethic, Bob dedicated over 40 years to Brakebush Brothers Inc. He loved to tell stories about the various positions he held at the company over the years including line worker, supervisor, maintenance work and his favorite of all, truck driving. The stories about his time on the road and hauling chickens were endless and always brought a smile to his face.

In his free time you could find Bob at the racetrack, playing the slots at Ho-Chunk casino or eating a fresh cherry tomato from his vegetable garden where he spent most of his summers. Bob also loved snowmobiling, fishing, John Deere tractors, cheering on the Green Bay Packers and most of all spending time with his family.

After spending 4 years at Harris Villa Assisted Living in Harrisville, WI, Bob found his final home at Tivoli where he spent the last year of his life. He was always known for his outgoing personality and ability to strike up a conversation with anyone he met and therefore quickly became a very beloved resident at Tivoli.

Bob is survived by his three daughters, Debbie (Donald) Clapper, Tammy (Kevin) Daye and Jean Schmidtke; daughter-in-law Amanda McWilliams Rosanske, six grandchildren, Cammie, Amanda, Jamie, Jesse, Tyler and Boston, one great grandson, Blake, sister Sue (Jule) Standke. niece Angie Luoma and nephew Chad Standke. Bob was preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Luella, his wife Judy, and his two sons Robert (Bobby) and Mark.
