Anthony ‘Tony’ Zenon Soblewski
BURNETT -- Anthony “Tony” Zenon Soblewski, 71, of Burnett, was welcomed into heaven on Friday, April 19, 2019, in Sun City, Arizona.
Tony was born Aug. 7, 1947, to Zenon and Olga Soblewski. He was a lifetime member of the Loyal Few LE Motorcycle Club, the Mayville VFW Post #8647, the Horicon American Legion Post #157 and American Legion Sun City Post # 62, and the Beaver Dam HOG Chapter. Tony’s love of life was endless: hunting, fishing, motorcycling, hiking, pickleball, golf, cards and recently the ukulele.
Tony was incredibly proud to have served our country in the Marine Corps and earned two Purple Hearts. He then served his community as a Mayville police officer and a deputy with the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department, where he retired as a detective in 2000.
He was also passionate about his Wisconsin sports teams: Brewers, Packers and Badgers.
Tony is survived by his wife Molly; his three sons: Anthony of Burnett, Jason (Geraldine) of Brier, Washington, and Michael (Sandra) of Mayville; nine grandchildren: Ashley, Taylor, Hunter, Jesse, Anabella, Hannah, Jessica, Rebecca and Kahlia; four great-grandchildren: Araya, Ellie, Hailey and Skylar; his brother, Ed Soblewski of Sun City, Arizona; his sisters: Jenny Soblewski, Helen Nall and Anita Carter, all of Milwaukee. Tony was loved by so many, especially his in-law family The Hintze’s.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Joseph and his sisters Mary and Christine.
Tony and his family have been blessed beyond words with the love of family and friends. He loved God, his country, his family and his friends.
All are welcome to attend a memorial gathering on Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. at the Burnett “Palace” Hall, N8542 Second St., Burnett, to share memories and remember Tony. At 3 p.m. the Horicon American Legion Post #157 will conduct military honors for Tony’s service to our country in the Marines. Tony’s family would like to encourage all to wear their favorite Brewer, Packer, Badger, Harley or hunting shirt. Tony would have wanted it this way. Following the honors, a light lunch will be available.
Memorial offerings will be dispersed to charities that were important to Tony.
The Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home in Beaver Dam is serving the family. Online condolences may be made at www.koepsellfh.com.
