Obituary for Gary F. Jentges

Mr. Gary Jentges, of County Road B in the Town of Port Washington, passed away at Northridge MGM Healthcare in Manitowoc on Saturday evening, December 3, 2016, following a lengthy illness. He was 55 years old. Gary was born on September 16, 1961 in Port Washington, son of Walter and Arlene Bares Jentges. He attended local schools and graduated from Port Washington High School with the Class of 1980.
Gary was raised on the family farm, and decided that a career as a dairy farmer was for him. He took over the farm from his parents in 1989 and continued farming. On September 7, 2002, Gary was united in marriage with Margaret Burmesch at Holy Cross Catholic Church. The couple settled on the farm and began their family.
Mr. Jentges was a life-long member of Holy Cross Catholic Church, currently Divine Savior Parish, and had served on the Parish Council, was a past Parish Council President, and had also served as a mass lector. He loved farming, Case tractors and cows, but the highlight of any day was spending time with his family.
Gary is survived by his wife, Margaret, and their daughters Amy and Judy, sister Rita (Larry) Lanser of the Town of Fredonia, brothers Kenneth (Jackie) Jentges of the Town of Port Washington, Ronald (Elizabeth) Jentges of the Town of Holland and Alan (Pam) Jentges, also of the Town of Port Washington, brothers-in-law Bill (Julia) Burmesch of Buckeye, AZ, Dan Burmesch of Cascade, Paul (Debbie) Burmesch of Random Lake, Mike (Donna) of Port Washington, and John Burmesch of Random Lake. He is further survived by aunts and uncles Audrey & Alvin Schueller of West Bend, June & Gene Grandlic of Grafton and Nancy & John Jentges, Jr. of Belgium, nieces, nephews, cousins, other family and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 6PM on Friday, December 9th at Divine Savior Parish – Holy Cross Chapel, 5332 County Highway B, in the Town of Belgium. Father Todd Budde will preside. He will be laid to rest in Holy Cross Cemetery the next day. The family will receive visitors at CHURCH on Friday from 3-6PM.
