Stanley “Butch” Kielpikowski, 83, Town of Eaton resident, died Saturday, October 17, 2020, at Grancare Gardens. He was born March 19, 1937, to the late John and Anna Kielpikowski.
On June 8, 1957, Stanley married Marilyn Shaha at Holy Martyrs of Gorcum Catholic Church. Following their marriage, they began a life of farming in the Town of Eaton, running the farm until their retirement in December of 1999. In retirement, Butch and Marilyn enjoyed many bus trips, especially when there was Bingo, or a casino involved. He enjoyed cards and played with numerous clubs, was involved with pool leagues, and bowled for many years. Butch was an avid sports fan and was always willing to fill you in on events. He was a member of Prince of Peace Parish and very much devoted to his faith. Butch was a hardworking and a dedicated family man, but not always so serious as he loved to joke and play a good prank. He was a loving husband, father, and friend and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by their two children, Donna Kielpikowski and Dennis (Tonia) Kielpikowski, all from the Town of Eaton; four grandchildren: Becky (Travis) Hawbecker; Justin (Heather) Hermans; Nicole (Jacob) Gosdeck and Samantha (Mark) Roffers; nine great grandchildren: Parker, Madi, Carter, Isaac, Hannah, Keaton, Mallory Dalton, and Victoria; his brother, Ted Kielpikowski, Bellevue; two sisters-in-law, Judy (James) Kaminski, FL and Joyce (Mel) Piontek, Green Bay; two brothers-in-law, Robert (Linda) Shaha and Don Shaha, all of Green Bay along with many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn A. Kielpikowski, an infant daughter, Katherine; sisters, Sophie Janowski, Lucy Schlies, and Pauline Piechota; brothers, Mike, Joseph, Pete, Nick, Frank, Leo, Jack Kielpkowski; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Russell and Lorraine and numerous in-laws.
