Winfield "Winnie" R. Hackbarth, age 89 of Beaver Dam, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, May 1, 2015 at Hillside Manor in Beaver Dam.

Winnie was born on March 28, 1926 in Ripon, WI, the son of Charles and Viola (Wild) Hackbarth. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force, serving overseas as a Corporal during World War II. On December 9, 1945, he was united in marriage to Alice Montgomery in Louisiana. Together they owned and operated Winnie & Alice's Hideaway in Beaver Dam. Winnie worked at Kirsh Foundry in Beaver Dam, retiring as a foreman after 41 years. He also drove bus locally for over 20 years. He was a member of the John E. Miller American Legion Post 146, VFW Post 1163, St. Katharine Drexel Parish and served as Past-President of the Eagles Club.

Winnie was a kind-hearted, generous soul, who never hesitated to put others ahead of himself. He loved all of his grandchildren dearly and enjoyed the frequent visitors who would stop by whenever he was spotted out in his garage. He looked forward to camping trips in his earlier years and deer hunting with the boys and the Montgomery family. He also enjoyed traveling to Texas many times over the years.

Winnie is survived by his wife, Alice of Beaver Dam; his children, Jim (Dorothy) Hackbarth of Waupun, Rita (Gary) Rose of North Fond du Lac, Louise (Bill) Vossekuil of Beaver Dam, Sharon (Chuck) Gove of Fox Lake and Brenda (Roger) Priddy of Texas; his grandchildren, Mark Hackbarth, Tina Kenevan, Kevin (fiancée Deana Price) Hackbarth, Nicole (Jamie) Simpson, Matthew S.
