Allen J. Knuth
Allen J. Knuth of Fond du Lac died on August 5, 2020 from
Alzheimer’s disease. Al’s journey was
not without challenges, and he faced it with his patient, kind spirit.
Al was born May 2, 1941 to Lorraine Gebhardt and Milton
Knuth. He attended Milwaukee Lutheran
High School. Al met his wife Pat at their young ages of 16 and 15. They married on August 20, 1960. After college, they raised their three
daughters in Menomonee Falls, where Al started his banking career. In 1980, the
family moved to Fond du Lac, when Al took a new job at Fox Valley Savings Bank. He was so proud of the people he worked with
(never missing a chance to stop in the break room for a visit and a donut). He was committed to his community and always
volunteered when asked, having served on numerous boards and committees.
Above all else, Al was a dedicated Christian whose strong
belief in Jesus Christ served him well.
He walked the walk proudly, yet humbly in faith. His presence in our family and community will
be greatly missed, but he has left us with wonderful memories.
Al is survived by his wife Patricia; daughters Julie (Evin
Galbraith), Susan (Robert Pankratz), and Amy (William Blaine); along with eight
grandchildren and five great grandchildren; Al’s brothers David Knuth, Fond du
Lac, Robert Wiegand, of Yuma, AZ, Tom Wiegand of Stevens Point, and sister
Linda Knuth Gresbach of Waupaca.
