Robert Clarence Hoerth, age 65, of Chilton, died doing what he loved on Monday, January 20, 2020 following a snowmobile accident. He was born May 24, 1954 in Fond du Lac, son of Clarence & Colleen (Liebzeit) Hoerth. Robert married his soul mate and partner both in life and business, Judi Brantmeier on November 7, 1998 at First United Methodist Church in Appleton.
It was Robert that introduced the love of wresting to the family, which has continued for generations. For 2 years he was the head coach for the Chilton High School Wrestling Team. He looked forward to his own grandchildren’s wrestling careers and attending their wrestling meets.
Robert grew up on a farm and even spent a portion of his youth working on his Grandpa Al’s farm. At a young age, Robert quickly learned that he wasn’t a fan of milking cows, but fell in love with working the land and dreamed of one day operating his own harvesting business. Robert and Judi laid out a plan and began the operation of Hoerthland Custom Services. Blessed beyond measure, Robert’s eyes would light up many times knowing he was doing what he loved and spending time in the fields hauling in the best crops.
Robert started dating the love of his life Judi in 1997. He always told her she was the “most beautiful woman in the room.” He made her feel so loved that he would leave love notes in random places and would buy gifts just because.
Robert’s love of family was self-evident. He looked up to his parents and through the years the bond has only became stronger. With so many siblings there are countless stories to tell. In Robert’s eyes, his four daughters meant the world to him and he treated them with unconditional love. When he married Judi, he gained two additional children that he treated as his own. His pride and joy is all his grandchildren.
Robert was always looking for a fun time whether it be playing sheepshead, poker, bean bags and much more. A favorite pass time would be teasing any person around him. He also enjoyed dancing and singing to the oldies. He was especially prized hosting the Hoerth Family Christmas Gathering in their shop. On his off months from the business he loved to cruise the trails on his snowmobile. One place he really found peace and relaxation was on his lawnmower. It was where he would solve the world’s problems.
He was one of the kindest, gentlest and caring person who was adored by many. Robert went out of his way to be a blessing to those around him. He actively attended Good Shepherd Catholic Church and had been a former member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Kloten. Through his work, he was a member of the Midwest Forage Association and the Wisconsin Custom Harvester’s Association where he had also served as the association’s president. Robert was a 13 year member of the Stockbridge Volunteer Fire Department, Calumet Sno-Trails and the Chilton Wrestling Club.
Robert’s giving nature will continue to live on through others as an organ donor. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him, loved him, and appreciated his presence in their life.

My condolences Judi and family for the loss of Robert. What a shame to lose such a fine man. He was always so kind to me and my kids and had a hello whenever we saw him out and about. I pray you find peace and comfort in the days ahead.√įŇł‚ĄĘ¬Ź√Ę¬Ě¬§
Kathy Kuhn (Friend ) - Jan. 24, 2020
This is one of the most beautiful tributes I have ever read. It speaks volumes of what life is about - family, values, love, respect of others. Bob brought so much to this community.
Know that he was loved by many, he touched alot of lives, he made a difference. Right now there are no words that can take the pain away. Just know Judi and the entire Hoerth family that Bob is no longer walking beside you but he is and always will be within you.
John & Lori Popp (Friend) - Jan. 24, 2020

When we were kids we always spent a week every summer on the farm. I learned to ride a two wheel bike there. I fell off many times, and every time I did, Bob stood there and laughed his happy ass off. Then he√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘd help me up and we√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘd do it all over again. By week√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs end I looked like I survived WWIII! And as we grew older we had some good times at the √Ę‚ā¨ŇďDUDE RANCH√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě! Thoughts and prayers to ALL of you. Love you guys √Ę¬Ě¬§√Į¬ł¬Ź√Ę¬Ě¬§√Į¬ł¬Ź√Ę¬Ě¬§√Į¬ł¬Ź
