Leo Richard Koblizek, 82, Catawba, Township of Harmony, passed away at the Aspirus Duroy Terrace Apartments on November 23, 2019. Leo was born in Harmony on July 27, 1937, the son of Roman and Anna (Kralicek) Koblizek. Leo graduated from Phillips High School, class of 1955. He served his country in the Wisconsin Nation Guard, 32nd Red Arrow Division, and was activated during the Berlin Crisis in the early 1960’s, spending his enlistment at Ft. Lewis, Washington. Leo farmed his entire life, and he took over the family farm after the passing of his mother and father. Leo was active throughout his life with raising, and hunting coon dogs with his many friends. He enjoyed feeding birds, especially humming birds. Leo cherished his home and his hunting dogs. Leo was a devoted Green Bay Packer and Wisconsin Badger fan, and rarely missed watching a game. He was always available with advice, and or commitment for anyone in the Township. He also served the Township of Harmony as Chairman of the Township’s Board for many years, and served in many needed capacities for the Township. Leo was preceded in death by his parents, older brother Frank Koblizek, by his three sisters, Lillian, Frances, and Jeanette, and numerous aunts and uncles.
He is survived by a sister-in-law, Lois Koblizek, many cousins and friends.
