Keith A. Kiehnau

Keith Allan Kiehnau, 68, passed away peacefully on June 26, 2018 at home, surrounded by his family. He was born on July 12, 1949 in Milwaukee to Howard and Rosalie (Wilhelm) Kiehnau. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from UW-Madison. Keith married Karla Bischoff on April 30, 1983 in Sheboygan.

Keith owned his own semi and enjoyed traveling around the country before settling down and raising his family. At this point, Keith started his own business as a self-employed craftsman. He was an active member of Sheboygan Rifle and Pistol Club and of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in the Town of Forest. Keith was a maple syrup enthusiast and king of the waffle iron. He was an amazing example of how to be a great Dad – warm, generous, comforting, joyful, patient and wise. He will be deeply missed.

Keith is survived by his wife, Karla; his mother, Rosalie; and five children, Zachary (Annie) Kiehnau, Roderick (Emily) Kiehnau, Malcolm Kiehnau, Reagan Kiehnau and Zebadiah Kiehnau. Keith is further survived by his siblings, Kathy Martin, Wayne Kiehnau, Debbie (Mike) Rudzik, John (Linda) Kiehnau, Renee (Ron) Heimerl and Linda Kiehnau; other relatives and many friends.
