Richard E., “Rick” Lentscher

Rick Lentscher, of Oak Creek, WI, died peacefully in the comforts of his home, on May 8, 2022, at the age of 71. 

Rick was a dedicated Supervisor of Public Works for the Village of Pewaukee for many years. He was an avid golfer, and he enjoyed spending time at the “office”, where he would ‘hold court’ and develop his ‘Rick-isms’. Rick also cherished his time Up North at ‘Christian’s Castle’ with the Griswold Family. 

Loving husband of Barbara. Dear father of Michelle Haupt, Melissa (Timothy) Kaisler, and John Lentscher. Special “father” to Jeri Lyn Lentscher. Supportive step-father of Lori (Jacob) Vanderhoef, Lisa (Ryan) Wendt, and Adam (Allison) Christian. Proud ‘Papa’ of Vlad, Sage, Lena, Matthew, Addie, Maple, Christian, North, Evan, Cora, Dominic, Lark, Gavin, and Acre. Fond brother of Carol Murack, Charles (Lynn) Lentscher, Joan Kunicki, Mary (Paul) Shrimplin, and William (Ruth) Lentscher. Fun-loving brother-in-law of Sharon and Neil Hawes, and special “bro” to Scott Christian. 

Devoted, lifelong patron and buddy to his NIP’s family in Pewaukee, WI, and superior friend to the bartending staff at Oak Hills Golf Course in Oak Creek, WI. 

Further survived by several nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends. 

Preceded in death by his parents Edward Charles and Imogene (nee: Halbrooks) Lentscher; siblings Judy, Gerald, James, and John Lentscher, and grand-daughter Brie Haupt. 

In honoring Rick’s wishes, he will be cremated and there will be no formal funeral service.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. Rick was always a great uncle and very kind person and I always appreciated him giving me advice about life, work, home, family and about helping my mom too. Even though it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other I’ll always remember him. Lots of amazing memories. Rest in peace Rick.
