Pingel, Bruce John.
“Well done, good and faithful servant!” Matt 25:23.
Born September 23, 1945 in Bay City, Michigan. Baptized October 14, 1945. Born to eternal life December 14, 2009 at Clement Manor Health Care Center in Greenfield, Wisconsin.
God gave Bruce the cross of Parkinson’s disease to bear for over 25 years. The faith and courage Bruce showed in bearing that cross has strengthened all those who have come to know him. He has done the work God has given him, and he is now at rest with his Savior.
Our sincerest thanks for the staff at Clement Manor Health Care Center, and Odyssey Hospice Care for their caring, their compassion, their reassurance and their professionalism.
Loving husband of Charlene Pingel nee Laimon. Dear father of Jim Renae Pingel, Diane Stephen Hoehnke, and Amy Schultz. Grandfather of Erin, Joshua, Meghan, Charlie, Brandon, Greta, and Annelise. Further survived by brothers Fred and Ivan, sisters Margaret, Joanne and Edith, and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
He is also remembered as a Lutheran Elementary School teacher, a coach, a model railroader and of course a friend. But first and foremost, he was always a Christian and a child of God.
