Walter N. Holzhaeuser, a loving husband and father, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 19, 2018 at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center. He was 83 years old.

Walter was born October 15, 1934 in Madison, the son of Felix and Hazel (nee Young) Holzhaeuser. He grew up and attended schools in Milwaukee and West Allis with his sister Donna Goodrich. On June 12, 1956, he was united in marriage with Beverly Freitag in West Allis. From 1957-1959, he proudly served his country in the United States Navy. In 1972, the couple moved their family to Sheboygan.

Walter worked as a semi-driver for local trucking companies throughout his life, including Berry Transport, Chair City Express and Chizek Transport, where he retired from in 1996. After retirement, he went on to keep busy for Manning Lighting.

Walter was a former member of Sheboygan Falls Community Church, where he volunteered on various committees. He was currently a member of Hope Reformed Church. Walter was a loving husband, an avid Packer fan, a willing and helpful handyman, who had a smile for everyone. A resident of the Regency Apartments, he enjoyed spending time with his many friends.
