Otto A. Kurtz, 90, of Town of Sheboygan, passed away on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at his home. He was born October 20, 1928 in Sheboygan to Otto and Lillian (Sonneman) Kurtz. Otto attended North High School. He joined the U.S. Army in 1946 and proudly served with Troop A 27th Construction Crew in Germany earning the rank of Weapons Crewman 601 and was honorably discharged in August 1947.
On November 1, 1952 he was united in marriage to June R. Heinga in Brillion. She preceded him in death on November 14, 2009.
Otto worked on construction of High Voltage Lines following his discharge from the military. He then went on to work as a truck driver for Motor Transport Company and several other companies. He retired from the Kohler Company.
Otto was an active member of the Teamsters Union 662 and still attended regular meetings and parties. He was also an active member of the VFW Post 9156. Having a strong faith he was a member of St. John's UCC. Otto made many successful hunting trips to Wyoming with his dear friends Claude Craft and Bob Werbeckas, bringing home a trophy mule deer. He also loved gardening, growing his giant kohlrabi and giving them to family and friends. He also loved fishing with his family and friends and enjoyed many trips to Rolling Stone Lake. Otto took great pride in making his beef jerky, homemade sauerkraut and horseradish and sharing it with his friends.
