Roger W. F. Schewe

Issue Date: March 10, 2021

Roger W. F. Schewe, 87, of the Town of Lake, passed away Monday, March 8, 2021 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

Born March 9, 1933 in Marinette, to Walter and Sophia (Garbrecht) Schewe, he was a lifelong area resident, graduated from Marinette High School in 1951 and played football and basketball for four years. He also played Legion Baseball during the summers. He worked at Interstate Auto Supply from 1951 until 1953 and on Sept. 5, 1953, he married his high school sweetheart, Sally Miller.

In 1953 he entered the United States Air Force and served for four years, teaching electronics and radio communications until being discharged in 1957. He returned to Interstate in 1957, working there until 1966 when he joined The Ansul Co. as a Manufacturing Engineer for fire protection products, until retiring in 1990.

In 1984, they built their new home in the Town of Lake, Marinette County, where they still lived. A lifelong member of First Trinity Lutheran Church, he served on the Church Council, was Secretary for many years and was a Sunday School Teacher. He also served on the Board of Directors of Bay Shore Credit Union for 17 years.

An avid hunter and fisherman, he was a Packers and Brewers fan, also supported high school sports and was an avid bowler with the Church League, Ansul League and Dome League teams.

He is survived by his wife, Sally; three children, Deborah (Daniel) Kamps of Peoria, Az. and Sheryl (Stephen) Kohn and Michael Schewe, both of Marinette; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and a sister, Lois Johnston.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a daughter, Susan, who died at age 8 from Cystic Fibrosis and a sister, Jean Combes.

Friends may call at First Trinity Lutheran Church, Wells St. at Grant in Marinette on Friday, March 12, 2021, from 1 p.m. until time of the funeral services at 2 p.m., with Rev. Christian Eisenbeis officiating. Burial will be in Glenwood Memorial Gardens in Marinette. Hansen Onion Martell Funeral Home of Marinette is assisting the family.
