Riegert, Norbert L.
Husband, father, teacher, counselor, farmer, sailor, author, gardener, world-traveler, carpenter, winemaker, storyteller, delightfully fun grandpa and great-grandpa – a truly full and exciting 92 years!
Nubs is now rejoicing in his reunion with the loves of his life Barbara (nee Coyne) and Alice Michels, his crazy and fun brother Harold, lovely sister Lou, his wonderful son-in-law Bryan Dudley, and sweet granddaughter-in-law Alexia Dudley. Of all his accomplishments, none is greater than the living legacy he leaves of 10 children: Mary (Dick), John (Carole), Ann (Bryan), Robert (Tracey), Thomas (Margie), Michael (Angie), James (Eileen), Peggy (Dennis), Catherine (Richard), and Bridget (Art). His 31 grandchildren: Charlie (Kristen), Donny (Alexia), Rachel (Brandon), John, Ben, Justin, Jeremy, Beckie, Molly, Anneliese (Greg), Michael, Sam, Elizabeth, Caitlin, Evan, Sara, Patrick, Maureen, Rosemary, Jake, Lauren, Natalie, Bridget, Gabi, Killian, James, and Cole. His 7 great-grandchildren: Bella, Laney, Jack, Sam, Meghan, Amy, and Owen. He leaves behind his younger brother Ray and a multitude of nieces, nephews, and friends including his stepchildren Mary, Kathy, Steve, and their families.
Nub’s second home was Pius XI Catholic High School. As a man of strong faith he taught and counseled countless students and their families for more than 3 decades. He was tireless in his noble effort to increase racial equality at Pius and throughout the Milwaukee community.
The Riegert family appreciates the compassion shown our father by the Linden Grove staff, especially Samantha, both Nicks, Zach, and Marissa. The special care from the Vitas Hospice staff offered him fun along with great care. Thanks to Michelle, Theresa, Christy, and the bubbly Julie.
