Hugo farmed in the Town of Brothertown his entire life and loved his International Tractors and toys. He always looked forward to playing a game of Sheepshead and religiously followed the seasons of the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers. He was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, formerly the St. Charles Parish. Survivors include his sister-in-law: Lyn Doris Lodes of Brillion; and his nieces and nephews: Agnes (Francis) Wenig of Elmhurst, IL, Monica Knauf of Stockbridge, Albert (Cindy) Schmitt of Cottage Grove, MN, Loretta (Harold) Heller of Menasha, and Ronald Schmitt of Chilton. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers: Ferdinand, Alphonse, & John Lodes; his sisters: Mary (Joseph) Schmitt, Catherine & Veronica Lodes; and 2 nephews: Kenny Schmitt & Thomas Knauf. Funeral service will be at 3:00 PM on Friday, June 15, 2012 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (54 E. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Bob Kollath officiating. Burial will follow in the St. Charles Catholic Cemetery in Charlesburg. Friends may call at the church from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM on Friday, June 15, 2012. Hugo's family would like to thank all of the neighbors and friends who have offered their love, support, and prayers; they would also like to thank the entire staff of the Chilton Care Center for their years of kind and compassionate care of Hugo. And who could forget the entire group of card playing friends that Hugo looked forward to seeing for a round of Sheepshead, thank you.
