Richard B. Wenzel, age 92, passed away on May 22, 2022, in The Villages, Florida. Dear husband of Betty (née Krutsch) of Ft. Myers, Florida. Father of Darla Stocks (Jeff, deceased), Karen Kloehn (Russ) and Alan Wenzel. Brother of Thomas Wenzel, William (deceased), Harry (deceased) and Charles (deceased). Further survived by six grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

Richard and his identical twin brother (Thomas) were born on September 15, 1929 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Harry and Bertha Wenzel. They lived in Menomonee Fall, Wisconsin where Richard graduated high school in 1948. He met Betty Krutsch and asked her to marry him in 1950. They were married on September 29th, 1951. They subsequently had three children. They were together 70+ years and he loved her with all his heart.

Richard was an avid bowler and golfer. He loved fishing and hunting. Getting together with his friends and family to play cards happened anytime there was a gathering.

In 1995, Richard retired from Wisconsin Gasket, where he was a supervisor in the platen department. He and Betty decided to move to Ft. Myers, Florida. There he took up painting, he loved painting birds. He never forgot to dye easter eggs. He had a great sense of humor and was a huge Packer Backer.

His greatest joys were when his family from Wisconsin would come down to see him and Betty. He enjoyed showing the sites of Ft. Myers to his visitors. After his twin brother Tom moved to Ft. Myers, you could find them together in the Packer lodge watching Gunsmoke. The two together could be counted on to provide laughs.
