Eugene E. (Dick) Warmuth
Eugene E. Warmuth, 90 of Waterloo, fell asleep in Jesus on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at the Highland House of Waterloo, surrounded by his loving family.
Eugene Edward Warmuth was born at home in Bristol, WI, on June 5, 1925, the son of Hattie Warmuth. He became the Lord’s own child through the Sacrament of Baptism at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in East Bristol. He attended all eight grades at St. Joseph’s Catholic School. He spent his youth on his grandparent’s farm in Bristol. “Dick,” as he was called most of his life, joined the United States Army in 1946. He spent a year as part of the U.S Occupational Army in Japan. He was honorably discharged in February 1948. Dick worked a variety of jobs throughout his life, proving himself to be a “jack of all trades.” The two jobs he spent the most time at were 16 years in the Marshall Sausage Kitchen, Marshall, WI, and 13 years at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI.After a two year courtship he married Dolores Muriel Parpart on July 8, 1950 in Columbus, WI.

Pleasant, WI; and Sandy (Tim) Grover of Waterloo, WI. They raised their family in many different houses over the years, primarily in the Madison and Marshall/Waterloo area, but they made each one a home where love was found by all.
