Robert A. Berndt

Robert A Berndt, age 65, passed away suddenly on Monday April 29, 2019.

Rob was born June 18, 1953, to Robert D. and Betty A. Berndt, and graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1971.

On October 25, 1974, he married Roxanne (Ceelen) Berndt and they enjoyed winters in Arizona, since his retirement from Wisconsin Public Service in 2013.

Golf was his passion after playing and coaching baseball for many years, and he played with the greatest of friends in Oshkosh, Winneconne, and Arizona.

His greatest joy in life was his grandchildren, and playing golf and attending their sports functions was what life was all about. “Grandpa Robbie” was always on their team rain or shine, win or lose. 

Rob lived life to the fullest, and family and friends meant the world to him.

Rob is survived by his wife, Roxanne; mother, Betty Pollack; daughter, Rebecca (Chris) Braman, and their children Sydney, Collin, and Camille; son, Jason (Nicole) Berndt, and their son Mason. He is also survived by brothers, Bruce (Katherine) Berndt, and children Jordon and Logon; Russ (Denise) Berndt, and children Taylor and Allyson; Bryan (Shannon) Berndt, and children Grace and Annie.

He was preceded in death by his father, Robert; stepmother, Donna Berndt; stepfather, William “Bill” Pollack; and father-in-law and mother-in-law, Henry and Audrey Ceelen.

A visitation for family and friends will be on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at Mueller Funeral Home 904 E. Main St. Winneconne. A celebration of Rob’s life will follow after visitation at the Westward Ho.

Luvey, Even greater than my love for you is my wish that you see PGA tours for eternity.

If you wish please submit online condolences to muellerfh.net.

Rob was the best of friends and seemed to know somebody everywhere we traveled. I enjoyed every opportunity I got to spend with Rob and learned a lot from him about how well he understood what other people were going through and what they needed to hear at that time. He will be sadly missed.

Roxie and family: Yvonne and I send our condolences as we will be out of town starting tomorrow and will not be able to attend Rob's funeral. I am a loss for words after finding out of Rob's passing. It wasn't that long ago that I thought about him and the times we shared together. For many years we worked side-by-side and also shared times playing golf. I can picture his smile and the sound of his laugh as I write this message. As I reflect, I can't believe the fact that those times were so long ago. It seems as though it was just yesterday. With age, our lives change, and it's been a while since we saw each other. It saddens my heart to hear that his physical presence is gone. However I am relieved in the knowledge that those times will always remain an important part of my life. Please accept our sincere sympathy and know that we are keeping you and the family in our thoughts and prayers. Tom and Yvonne Widzinski
