Robert K. Luebke

Robert (Bob) K. Luebke, 69, Gillett, passed away on Monday, January 31, 2022. Bob was born on February 21, 1952 in Oconto Falls, son of the late Kenneth and Evelyn (Kornaus) Luebke. He was a graduate of Gillett High School with the class of 1970. Following graduation, Bob attended UWGB before enlisting in the US Army, where he served for more than 20 years as a member of the Military Police. Upon retirement, Bob returned to Gillett and completed his education at UWGB, with a double major in History and German.

Bob was well recognized around Gillett driving “JD”, his John Deere tractor, filling up at the gas station so he could support the church by keeping the lawn cut. With Bob’s clockwork diligence, the grass didn’t have chance to ever get too high.
Bob approached gardening with a passion. He spent hours researching online, buying tools and setting up his garden beds to grow tomatoes that he would never eat. He grew the tomatoes every year in honor of his Dad.
Chute Pond was a favorite destination for Bob. He enjoyed the time he spent there with his friends Dennis and Chris. He kept a close eye on the campers during the summer to make sure they didn’t get out of line.
Many people know that Bob liked to visit and he had story upon story about his days in the army serving his country.  When he would visit friends and family, we always said he didn’t like to say goodbye. But actually he must have because it took him half an hour to say goodbye!
Bob was a kind man with a big heart. His absence will be felt by many. He will be missed. Rest In Peace our friend.

He is survived by one sister, Chris (Steve) Griset, Atascadero, CA; one sister-in-law, Julie Luebke; two nephews, Luke (Kiley) Luebke and Jacob (Sydney) Luebke; one grandnephew, Wyatt Luebke all of Green Bay; many cousins, other relatives and friends also survive. He was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Evelyn Luebke; one brother, John Luebke; grandparents and several aunts and uncles.
