The heart of the most caring and devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather, Carleton F. Weigel, stopped beating on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, and he ascended to heaven where he now walks hand in hand with his beloved wife Carol. Since her passing in 2009, not a day went by when he didn’t think of her and missed her beyond belief.
Carleton was born on March 26, 1940, to Mary Frances (Semenas) and Carl H. Weigel in North Fond du Lac, WI. He attended Presentation Catholic Grade School and graduated from Horace Mann High School in North Fond du Lac. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and then honorably served his county in the United States Army. While in service, he met the love of his life, Carol Wix, and they were married August 17, 1963. Two daughters were born from that union and he loved and supported them until his last breath.
Carleton held many management positions throughout his working career, but his most treasured years were spent at Amity Leather Co.,West Bend, WI, where he served as director of production and inventory control. He was a devout Catholic and served in many capacities at the churches he belonged to throughout his life.
Carleton is survived by his daughters, Deborah (Ronald) Dins, New Holstein, WI, Brenda (Andrew) Caine, Lowell, WI; three beloved grandchildren, Patrick, Grace, and Matthew Caine; in-laws, Richard (Mary) Wix, Sandy (Jim) Kemnitz, Mary (John) McCadden, Frank Wix, and Barb Wix; and many nieces, nephews, wonderful friends and neighbors.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Carol; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Alvin and Dorothy (Wix) Koentopp; and step-father-in-law, Harold Koentopp; brother-in-law, Robert Wix; and sister-in-law, Judy Wix.
