Robert J. “Crow” Carow of Omro, WI passed away on Monday, February 22, 2021, at home at the age of 72.

Robert was born on March 10, 1948, in Oshkosh, WI to Robert and Rita Carow.

He grew up in Winneconne, WI and his first job was a paper route and then worked at Baitinger’s grocery store throughout high school. In 1967 Crow graduated from Winneconne High School. He was drafted into the Army on May 16, 1968, and served in Vietnam from October 1968 to December of 1969. Bob was a member of the 35th Engineer Battalion and was a combat engineer and mine-sweeper. When he returned from Vietnam, he worked at Morgan Doors, J.I. Case and retired from the Leach Company. He enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers, the Badgers and NASCAR racing. Crow also played cribbage with his buddies every week. In 2019 Robert participated in an Old Glory Honor Flight to Washington D.C., which was one of the high points of his life.

Robert is survived by two sisters, Marie Carow (Jim Eid), and Marlene Olson; three brothers and two sisters-in-law, Randy and Carole Carow, Richard and Sue Carow, and Mike Carow; and nieces, nephews and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, John.

A private service and military honors will be held. Burial will follow in the Bell Cemetery, Winneconne. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Mueller Funeral Home-Winneconne is assisting the family with arrangements.

Bill n I was both sadden by the news of Crow's passing. He was a very private man but had a friendly smile when he saw you out. He never was one to complain about his Cancer but kept a brave front up till the end. He will truly be missed by those that knew him. RIP

I am sorry to hear of Robert's death. I haven't seen Robert since the Carow family reunions. He was always a good time. Happy to read about the Honor Flight, it had to be special. Avivah and I have been going through all of our pictures and putting them in albums, we have lots of him. He was my Mom's Godson. You're in our thoughts and prayers. Jake, Trish, and Avivah.

I enjoyed many Sunday afternoons playing dice with Crow and having a few disagreements... He talked of his love of his furry friend Clyde who he missed so much, his time in VIETNAM, he was so excited to go on the honor flight to Washington which he deserved, his love of Jules Blatners music....RIP my friend you will be missed
