Kevin Neitzel

January 11, 1956 — May 1, 2022

Kevin John Neitzel, age 66, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 1, 2022, on the family farm in the town of Pine River.  He was born on January 11, 1956, to the late William and Jean (Gryskiewicz) Neitzel in Milwaukee, WI. Kevin attended and graduated from Wauwatosa East High School.

During his adult life, Kevin worked in the machine repair/maintenance trade. He retired from Master Lock and was previously employed by Maintenance Service Corporation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  He enjoyed spending time on The Farm, in the town of Pine River, working outdoors and in the shop.  Kevin had a strong work ethic, a funny dry sense of humor and just an all-around wonderful person. He will be sadly missed but has left lasting memories with his loved ones.

Kevin is survived by his twin brother: Brian Neitzel of Merrill, WI, sister: Donna (Ronald) Emery of Grafton, WI, with their children: William and Ashley, brother: Phillip (Glorine) Neitzel of Saukville, WI, with their children: Stephanie and Cierra, sister: Marcia (Christopher) Brown of Port Washington, WI, with their children: Tyler, Shelby, and Grace.  He was preceded in death by his nephew Steven Neitzel.
