SHERWOOD, WI - Howard Wessling Wahlfeld, age 78, of Sherwood, Wisconsin passed away unexpectedly at home on Thursday, August 18, 2011.

He was born in Topeka, IL on September 5, 1932, the son of the late Henry and Blanche (Conklin) Wahlfeld.

Howard was proud to serve in the U.S. Marine Corp, earning a Purple Heart in Viet Nam, and retired as a Lt. Colonel after 20 years. He then went on to work as a general agent for A.A.L. In his many careers, Howard's passion was working with training and counseling others, including being a family counselor at Appleton Highland Memorial Park.

He loved nature, boating and spending time with family and friends. Howard will be remembered for being a loyal and dedicated man. He had a sense of humor and was known for lovingly teasing those around him.

Howard is survived by his wife, Shirley; children: Pam (Roger) Fox of Rushville, IL and Erick (Lisa) Wahlfeld of Greenville, WI; step-son: Rodney (fiance, Donna Kyser) Boldt of Appleton, WI; grandchildren: Amy (Shannon) Clyde, Christopher (Erica) Busby, Monty, Desmond, Zachary, Donovan, Courtney, Mitchell, Kevin, Nicholas and Benjamin; great-granddaughter, Maddisyn; sister, Eloise (Jay) Rose; brother, Eldon (Newell) Wahlfeld; and nieces and nephews.

Entombment will be in Highland Memorial Park.
