Jerome Frank Bolz

Jerome Bolz, resident of the town of Port Washington, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 6, 2016. He was 92 years old.

Jerry was born on December 15, 1923, son of Joseph Bolz and Eleanor Anhalt Bolz of Farmington, WI. On November 22, 1945, he married Martha Kleckner at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Port Washington. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

He was an active member of St. Peter of Alcantara Catholic Church (now St. John the XXIII). As a member of the Men’s Club he volunteered for many activities including working in the Fish Day booth for over 40 years. If you attended any of the Lent Fish Fries, you would have seen him frying potato pancakes. He was extremely proud of being selected as the 2014 Parishioner of the Year.

Jerry was an avid hunter and fisherman, loved gardening and enjoyed making wine. He looked forward to playing cards with family, sat up until all hours of the night watching the Milwaukee Brewers, and welcomed an occasional trip to Potawatomi.

Jerry is survived by three sons: Gary (Mary Sue) of Port Washington, Danny (Sharon) of Random Lake, Ron (Joanne) of Port Washington. Three daughters: Bev Bolz of Belgium, Carolyn (Reed) Wykhuis of Oostburg, and Cathy (Mark) Schowalter of Port Washington.

He is preceded in death by wife Martha, two brothers Frank and Joseph and two sisters Carmen Schmidt and June Arenz.
