Frederick “Fritz” Perronne, age 72, of rural Sheboygan Falls, passed away suddenly Friday, May 16, 2014, at his home of an apparent heart attack.

He was born May 24, 1941, in Sheboygan, a son of the late Herbert and Florence (Fiedler) Perronne. Fritz attended St. Paul’s School in Sheboygan and Howards Grove High School. He was doing chores on his parents’ farm in the town of Herman as soon as he could wear boots.

Fritz married the love of his life, Eileen Beuchel, on Nov. 11, 1961, celebrating over 50 years of life together. Fritz and Eileen lived in Sheboygan for a short time, later moving to Eileen’s parent’s farm in the town of Herman. In 1989, they moved to Howards Grove, but continued to help on the family farm.

Fritz could never sit still. He managed the Taylor Height maintenance department for over 12 years, slowing down in 2002. In his spare time, Fritz did custom cropping for Krause and Kohler Farms, still having time to help on the family farm. He tamed wild mustangs, having up to 26 horses and foals, and also raised Hereford Beef Cattle that has expanded greatly over the years.

Eileen and Fritz shared their love and care with Edwin and Alice Griebe, caring for their needs and farm over eight years. Fritz was very active with the Herman Cheerios 4-H, showing cattle and being awarded the State Junior Dairy Award as well as various other accomplishments and awards over his lifetime. Fritz was a member of the Sheboygan County Holstein Association.

A life member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Howards Grove, he played dartball for the Trinity Tigers. In his later years he enjoyed going to cattle auctions, and touring the countryside.

Surviving Fritz is his loving wife, Eileen; two daughters, Janice (David) Morse and Alice (Roger) Wagner and a son, John (Lisa) Perronne, all of Howards Grove; nine grandchildren: Jamie Haack, Travis Haack (fiancée, Lindsay), Seth and Hannah Morse, Renee (Rick) Bowerman, Joshua, Courtney, Sean and Erica Perronne; three step grandchildren: Brian (fiancée, Emily), Lisa and Stacy Wagner; three great-grandchildren: Jaiden Haack, Adrian Bowerman and Khloe Haack; a sister, Carol Mae (Wayne) Karsteadt; two brothers-in-law, Vernon Reichert (special friend, Shirlee) and Wayne (Nancy) Beuchel, and a sister-in-law, Beverly Beuchel; as well as other relatives and many special friends.

In addition to his parents, Fritz was also preceded in death by his sister, Marion Reichert.

A funeral service will be conducted for Fritz at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, at Trinity Lutheran Church, Howards Grove. The Rev. Darrel Bergelin will officiate. Interment will be in the church cemetery.

Friends may call at the CHURCH on Wednesday from 2 p.m. until the time of the service.

A memorial fund has been established to Trinity Lutheran Church in the name of Frederick Perronne.
