Gordon W. “Gordy” Wittmus, age 83, of Chilton, died on October 24, 2019, at Libby’s House in Chilton. He was born September 4, 1936, in Rockland, WI, son of the late Gordan and Virginia Wittmus. On June 15, 1968, he married Beverly “Bev” Hoffmann in Manitowoc, and together they had three children.

Gordy was an outdoorsman who liked hunting and fishing, and was a member of the Quinney Fishing Club and the Winnebago East Shore Conservation Club. The only thing that could get him in the house during hunting season was Packer games. He was a loving husband and father, even extending his kindness to four AFS students who lived with Bev and Gordy for a year each.

Gordon is survived by his wife, Bev; his children: Robyn (Mark) Lochner, Rory (Mike) Martin, and Wade (Nicole) Wittmus; grandchildren: Kaleigh Martin, Makenna Martin, Kennadi Martin, Hunter Lochner, Braeden Lochner, Kaleb Lochner, Grace Wittmus, and Aiden Wittmus; sister: Veronica Dehne; brothers: Werner (Nanette) Wittmus, Wayne Wittmus, Dale (Kathy) Wittmus, and Leroy (Karen) Wittmus; a sister-in-law: Janice Zipperer; and a brother-in-law: Jim (Bonnie) Hoffmann.

Gordon was preceded in death by his parents, Gordan and Virginia; sisters: Ordella (Robert) Pekarske and Henrietta Yaeger; a brother: Al Wittmus; and brothers-in-law: Harry Dehne, Robert Pekarske, and William Zipperer. 

A funeral service is set for 5:30pm on Tuesday, October 29, at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton. Friends may call at the funeral home from 3:30pm until 5:15pm on the day of the service. Burial will take place at 9:00am on Wednesday, October 30, at St. Elizabeth Catholic Cemetery in Kloten. 

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Libby’s House and Heartland Hospice for the compassionate care they gave Gordy.
Our deepest sympathies to all of your family.

My deepest sympathy to the Wittmus Family for your loss. When my cousin Delma Reichwald told me you were neighbors I was very excited as I knew Nanette and werner. I am also a classmate of Janice Nett and Laverne Schmidt. So I heard some of your journey with Gordons illness thru these 3 people, Bev. You were a very devoted wife and my blessing to you and your family for your loss. Janet Graf

My deepest sympathy to the wittmus family. When I learned Gordon and family moved to the Moehrke Rd. home I was very exicited. My Grandpa was Oscar Moehrke and Vernon Reichwald was a cousin to my Mom. I met Nanette at SMMC and got to know a little about the Witmus family. Janice Nett is a classmate of mine and shared some news of Gordons journey with his wife's help. So I feel like I "know" you, Bev. Very sorry for your loss. Janet Graf
