Joseph A. Rumbuc

“Snafu” A. Rumbuc, 68, of Fond du Lac, died Saturday, April 11, 2020 at his
residence.  He was born March 16, 1952 in
Fond du Lac, the son of Alex and Audrey Gilmore Rumbuc.  He graduated from Oakfield High School Class
of 1970.  He served as a Specialist 4 in
the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne from 1979 – 1983.  Snafu worked for Oakfield Canning Company and
California Canners & Growers in Lomira. 
He was an entrepreneur and owned and operated several bars,
“Snafu’s”.  He was a carpenter with a
knack for creativity and enjoyed playing the guitar.  Snafu followed all Wisconsin sports, Bucks,
Brewers, Packers and Badgers.


He chose
to live life with humor and generosity. 
He volunteered at the Food Pantry and loved making his “special” banana
bread and meatballs for family and friends. 
He will be remembered for his famous “catch” phrases; “Happy Easter” and
“See you Tuesday”, not necessarily the correct Holiday, but that was to be
expected.  He loved sending cards to
people with losing lottery tickets in them. 


He is
survived by five siblings, Jeff Rumbuc of Fond du Lac, Kathy (Jim) Geelan of
Fond du Lac, Karen (Joe) Koenen of Oakfield, Chuck Rumbuc of Mesa, AZ, and
Chris (Mark) Burleton of Oakfield; many nieces, nephews, and other relatives.  He was preceded in death by his parents; his
nephews, Ben Koenen and Patrick Geelan; and niece, Margaret Geelan.


Due to
the current restrictions surrounding COVID-19, cremation has taken place and a
memorial service will be held at a later date.
