Thomas E. Breitzman
Thomas E. “Uncle Tom” “Britz” Breitzman passed away unexpectedly September 2020 at his residence.
He was born on April 11, 1953 in Sheboygan, WI to Robert and Ellen (nee Arnold) Breitzman. Tom graduated from Campbellsport High School Class of 1971. He had quite the accomplished athletic career, as a 10 time letter winner, holding several track records and earning all-conference in football.
Britz’ love for sports carried into his adult life. He was a regular on the lanes at King Pin and competing in many national bowling tournaments. Britz was also the proud owner of “the Badger van”. Everyone in town knew where he was by his van or hearing his infectious laugh. Those who knew Tom, knew his weekend wardrobe consisted of “Badger red on Saturday, Packer green on Sunday”.
While Tom never married, his family was very important to him. His big brother, Bill, was his biggest supporter. Tom was always there for his niece and nephew as they were growing up, showing them how to shoot a free throw, playing games and even taking them to motorcycle races. When Tom became a great uncle, he continued his support by attending as many of their band concerts and sporting events as he could.
Recently, Tom found much comfort with the Men’s Group and Weekly Bible Study at the Immanuel Lutheran church where he was a long-time member.
Tom will be deeply missed by the family he left behind: brother Bill (Karen) Breitzman, niece Becky (Tim) Scannell, nephew Rick (Megan) Breitzman; great nieces and nephews, Bret, Sara & Elli Scannell, LaRynn Breitzman, and Travis and Jessie Head.
He was preceded in death by his parents and step-father (Robert S Koehn).
Visitation will be Saturday, October 10th from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm at the Twohig Funeral Home, 109 W. Main St. Campbellsport with a funeral service to follow at 12:00 pm at the funeral home. Rev. Paul Cerny will officiate and burial will be at a later date in Ledgeview Memorial Park in Fond du Lac along side his parents. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials in Tom’s name to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Campbellsport.
