Ralph E. Weiskopf

Milwaukee – Ralph E. Weiskopf entered eternal life peacefully at San Camillus on Monday, December 28, 2020 at the age of 100.  Ralph was the devoted husband of the late Margaret for over 60 years and caring father of his late son Robert.  Ralph is survived by two sons James (Kathryn) and Thomas (Susan) and his beloved grandchildren Steven (Amber) and Lynn.


Living and enjoying a life of 100 years provided many life experiences to share.  Ralph honorably served his country in the US Army during World War II here and overseas in Okinawa.  Ralph enlisted the day after the Pearl Harbor attack just shy of 21 years in age.  He was also a proud retiree of the Milwaukee Fire Department where he served for over 35 years as a firefighter, MPO, and finally as a lieutenant.  Ralph spent many summers in his retirement years in Phillips, Wisconsin with his beloved wife Margaret fishing, playing cards, and enjoying the occasional Manhattan or old-fashioned during the cocktail hour with his friends Boots and Mary Curran.  During the 1960’s, he could be found in the stands at the Juneau High School football games where each of his three sons played during that decade.  Ralph was a devoted Catholic and a lifelong member of Holy Cross Church (now St. Vincent Pallotti) in Milwaukee.


The family would like to thank the caretakers at San Camillus in Milwaukee for their compassion and devotion to Ralph.  A private service for family will be held at St. Vincent Pallotti.  Ralph will be interred at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Military Cemetery joining his beloved wife Margaret at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to St. Vincent Pallotti parish in Milwaukee in Ralph’s name.

    Our sympathies, my parents, Joe (Lohman’s now Heritsge) & Mary Liz Koch, were great friends of your parents forming the Hanky Panky group & sheepshead card nights. We had the pleasure of joining them playing dominoes & sheepshead whenever extra hands were needed in later years.

    Many good memories! Your Dad was the last of the group. ( Koch, Fitzgerald, Rozanski, Krause, and Brinsko) I am sure that the fang is together in a much better place.

    Ralph & Marge were great friends to my parents (Joe & Mary Koch). Dad played Sheepshead with Ralph probably since the 1950’s. As couples they played lots of Dominoes & dinners out. He was the last of the card club. I remember him fondly.
