Rodney C. Bublitz
Rodney C. Bublitz, 90, passed
away unexpectedly at his home in Fond du Lac on Monday, August 31, 2020, where
he resided for 54 years. He was the first
born to Edward and Edna Bublitz in Milwaukee on July 22, 1930. He attended school in Milwaukee and
Grafton. Rodney enlisted and served in
the U.S. Air Force from 1948 – 1952. On
March 13, 1954 he married his one and only love, Marion Bartlett. They started their family in Cedarburg and
raised three beloved daughters. In 1966
they relocated to Fond du Lac where he continued his 44 year career at
Mercury. Rodney served 35 years on the
board of directors at Marine Credit Union and volunteered for Mobile Meals for
He and Marion loved to travel
and he documented every detail of his many journeys. His greatest joys came from camping with his
family, starting from a canvas tent to a 23 foot trailer. Every summer was spent in Sayner at Firefly
Lake. In his later years, this is what
he missed the most… sitting on the beach with an Old Fashioned and Marion at
his side. In 2015, after 61 years of marriage,
Marion passed away, and a part of him went with her.
He will be greatly missed by his
three daughters and everyone whose lives he touched.

Hagie) Bublitz; grandchildren, Brian St. Amant, Andrea (Tim) Schroeder, and Eric
