Kenneth B. Fisch, age 77, of Hilbert, died on Thursday, December 06, 2012 at Oakridge Gardens in Menasha. He was born December 1, 1935 in the Town of Woodville, son of the late Herbert & Gertrude (Cook) Fisch. He married Ellenora Benthien on June 18, 1957 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in St. John. Ken devoted his life to the farm he ran in Woodville until his retirement in 1998. During his farming years, he also ran an Appleton Post Crescent route through the Woodville and Hilbert areas for over 34 years. Ken had been further employed at times in his life by the Town of Woodville, and Kassen Cheese in Brillion. He was a member of St. John Catholic Church, the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Chilton, the Hilbert Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Knights, and the Calumet County Farm Bureau. Ken loved his farm, and the work he was able to accomplish. He was always willing to drive around the countryside surveying the land and watching the crops at each plot of land. This was one of the reasons he had taken up the rural paper route; it afforded him another opportunity to admire the land all around him. Ken also enjoyed being around friends and family. He enjoyed good conversation with anyone and frequently passed along his wisdom about life to his children. Ken put the needs of those he loved before his own needs; always giving fully of himself to those around him. He is survived by his wife: Ellenora; 4 children: Donald (Penny) Fisch of Hilbert, Michael Fisch of Cottage Grove and his special friend, Gail, Robert Fisch of East Troy, Kevin (Carla) Fisch of Hilbert; 5 grandchildren: Jason (Nikki) Fisch, Adam (Tracey) Fisch, Brian (Rachel) Fisch, Erik Fisch and his special friend, Ashley, Amber Fisch; 2 great-grandchildren: Shane Fisch & Audrey Fisch; 4 sisters: Lorraine Eldred, Marjorie Stebane, Jeanne Anthony, Marian Dorn; and his brothers-in-law: Franklin (Delores) Benthien, John Benthien, Fred (Carol) Benthien. Ken is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant daughter; a nephew: Francis Eldred; brothers-in-law: Russell Eldred, Elmer Stebane, Wayne Anthony, Dennis Dorn, and a sister-in-law: Elayne Benthien. Funeral service will be at 11:00 am on Monday, December 10, 2012 at St. John Catholic Church (County Rd BB and B) in St. John with the Rev. Michael Betley officiating. Burial will follow in the Parish Cemetery. Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Sunday, December 9, 2012 and on Monday at the church from 9:30 am until 10:45 am. An Eagles Prayer Service, followed by the Parish Vigil service will begin Sunday evening at the funeral home at 6:30 pm.
