Roy Kaestner

July 22, 1936 — September 11, 2022

Sheboygan

Roy A. Kaestner, 86, of Sheboygan, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 11, 2022.  Roy was born July 22, 1936, to the late Harvey and Luella (Machut) Kaestner and raised on their farm in Sheboygan Falls.

He graduated from Plymouth High School and went on to attend classes at LTC.  Roy proudly served in the National Guard for 6 years.

On May 4, 1957, he was united in marriage to Barbara Leibham.  Together they raised five children: Keith (Karen) Kaestner of Minneapolis, MN, Kevin (Kathy) Kaestner of Big Fork, MT, Karen (Randy) Ingels of Howards Grove, Kathy (Ed) Gumbert of Green Bay, and Kurt (Lynn) Kaestner of Oak Creek.

Roy worked his entire career for Bemis Manufacturing (making “picture frames”) retiring on May 15, 1994, as the Production Control Manager. The Town of Sheboygan Volunteer Fire Department appreciated his assistance for 51 years serving as the Secretary/Treasurer and Inspector for many of those years.   He was a faithful member of St. Dominic Catholic Church serving as an usher and a member of the grounds crew.  Roy enjoyed fishing and hunting at the cottage, traveling, and definitely playing cards!

He is further survived by 16 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and 1 on the way, his brother Gene (Kathleen) Kaestner of Howards Grove, in laws Ken (Sue) Leibham, of Sheboygan, and Lorraine Schroeder of Libertyville, IL, his extended family Reinhard Palm of Elkhart Lake, Gladys Palm of Sheboygan Falls, and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Phyllis Nohl and Jeanette Moioffer, in laws Leander Nohl and Phyllis Hendrikse, and extended family Hans Palm and Joyce Palm.
