Marvin E Kilsdonk
Marvin E. Kilsdonk, age 85, of Chilton, died on June 19, 2020, at Ascension Calumet Hospital in Chilton. He was born July 31, 1934, son of the late Wilbert and Catherine Kilsdonk. Several years after the death of his first wife, Florence, he married Lila Brocker on August 9, 1980, at Good Shepherd Parish in Chilton.
Faith was very important to Marvin; he and Lila never missed a mass. He was a member of Good Shepherd Parish, the Catholic Order of Forresters, and the Chilton Fraternal Order of Eagles. He loved camping, fishing, and taking the kids to the races. Above all else, he was devoted to his family. His family remembers him as an exceptional father and wonderful husband.
Marvin is survived by his wife, Lila; children: Charles Brocker, Deb (Kenneth) Tasch, Fred Brocker (Gretchen Gerber), Janet (Jay) Rabida, Jeff (Barb) Kilsdonk, Jim (Tammy) Brocker, Mark (Julie) Brocker; 20 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; and siblings: Mary Brownell, Ann Brochtrup, Joe Kilsdonk, Richard (Donna) Kilsdonk, and Ronald (Carol) Kilsdonk.
Marvin was preceded in death by his first wife, Florence; his parents: Wilbert and Catherine; a grandson: Kyle Kilsdonk; siblings: Grace (Robert) Rhyner, Jerome (Lola) Kilsdonk, and Herbert (Cathy) Kilsdonk; brothers-in-law: Roy Brownell and Joe Brochtrup; and a sister-in-law: Alice Kilsdonk.
Private services are being held.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in the name of Marvin Kilsdonk.

Pops was a man small in stature but had the heart of a giant. I have many memories of going camping, fishing and to the races. My biggest memories of pops is that he was all about family. He treated us Brocker kids like we were his own and made us feel love and friendship when we were around him. I thank pops for taking care of and loving my mom Lila as much as he did. You will always have a big place in my heart and i hope i can be half the man you were. love Mark.

I will never forget Uncle Marv and his farm because that is the first time I got shocked by an electric fence when trying to pet a cow. I was so scared but learned my lesson about fences; stilled liked the cows.
Rest in peace Uncle Marv and It was special knowing you.
