Vergin, Floyd George
Floyd George Vergin, 85, Poy Sippi, passed away peacefully and went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on Thursday, July 30, 2009, at the Berlin Memorial Hospital, after suffering for many years from the complications of emphysema. Floyd, a life-long resident of the Poy Sippi area was born on March 29, 1924, to George and Nancy Hanson Vergin. The youngest of five children, Floyd became an avid outdoorsman who gave his children the gift of love of nature and introduced them to the sports of hunting, fishing, trapping, and hiking through the woods, which they all enjoy. The greatest gift he gave his family, however, was his love for the Lord Jesus and the Christian education his children received at Emmaus Lutheran Church. "Train up a child the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it." ? Proverbs 22:6
Floyd was a member of Emmaus Evangelical Lutheran Church in Poy Sippi since 1947. He humbly served his church in many capacities over the years. Floyd was the last surviving member of the building committee for the new church built in 1962.
On June 8, 1947, Floyd proudly married the love of his earthly life, Lillian E. Anklam in the Town of Lind. They have five children. This year they celebrated 62 years of marriage, which Floyd would have considered his greatest achievement.
In his younger years, Floyd was a very good bowler. He always enjoyed watching golf on television. He was also a very skilled wood worker, helping out friends and family on building projects until emphysema made this too difficult. Floyd worked for many years as a terrazzo mechanic, installing floors in churches, schools, and hospitals throughout the Midwest. He also worked for Marks Construction Co. of Berlin, WI, and Wausau Tile and Terrazzo. He helped his wife with custodial work at the Poy Sippi Elementary School following his retirement.
Floyd was a World War II Veteran who proudly served his country in the United States Navy as a Carpenters Mate. He sailed with the USS Honolulu. He was a member of American Legion Post #391 of Fremont.
Floyd is survived by his loving and devoted wife Lillian, Poy Sippi; three sons, Bryan (Sharon) Vergin, Phillips, WI; Evan (Susan) Vergin, New Castle, CO and Kurt (Cheryl) Vergin, Poy Sippi; two daughters, Sharon (Paul) Marschall, Ripon, and Marcia (Mark) Fink, Weyauwega; thirteen grandchildren, Dana (Kevin) Neuenfeldt, Darin (Crystal Leinweber) Marschall, Daniel (Jamie Bessert) Marschall, Nathan Vergin, Sarah Vergin, Lucas (Sarah) Vergin, Layce (Jeff) Phillips, Edward Vergin, Joseph Vergin, Evonne Vergin, Mallory Fink, Lana (Michael) Baerenwald, and Charles Fink; and four great-grandchilden, Alexa and Layne Neuenfeldt, Madison Phillips, and expected baby Marschall. Floyd is also survived by a sister, Margaret Oliver, Janesville; sister and brother-in-law, Ona and Delmar Schoenick, Weyauwega; sisters-in-law, Esther Koehler, Appleton, and Marie Anklam, Neenah. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
