Robert “Bob” Hueller

Sep 23, 1936 - Mar 10, 2019


Robert “Bob” Hueller, 82, was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, March 10, 2019, surrounded by his family. He was born September 23, 1936 in Sheboygan to Meta Marie (Zube) and Conrad Karl Hueller. He attended Mapledale Elementary School before transferring to the Wisconsin School for the Visually Handicapped in Janesville, where he graduated in 1954.

After working briefly at various jobs, he pursued a career in Piano Technology, obtaining his degree from Greer Technical School in Chicago. He worked at Donaworth Baldwin Piano Store in Milwaukee from 1957 to 1959. After returning to Sheboygan, he continued tuning and repairing pianos, retiring after an impressive 60-year career.

Bob and Elizabeth Ann Schmidt were married on April 8, 1961. Bob was a faithful member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, having served as an Elder, former board member, and choir member. Bob and Liz sang duets throughout their marriage in church and in the community.

Bob was a former member of Sheboygan Noon Lion’s Club, served on the Wisconsin Council of the Blind for many years, and played his string bass and bass guitar in many bands over the years, including Freddy Kuether Band, Carl Laack Orchestra, and Riverfront Ramblers. Bob was inducted into the Sheboygan County Music Wall of Fame in 2006. He was a volunteer at The Gathering Place for the last year and a half, and he and Liz delivered Meals on Wheels for 18 years.

Bob is survived by his wife of 57 years, Elizabeth; two children: Daniel (Jenifer) Hueller of Joplin, MO, and Katherine Erickson of Ottawa, WI; six grandchildren: Dustin Joseph, Abraham, Emma and Annie Hueller, Austin and Amanda Erickson. He is further survived by his sister, Margaret Adam, sisters-in-law Caroll Hueller, Kelesta Hueller, Marilyn TenHaken, many nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Rev. Marvin, Gordon, and Harold Hueller; his brother-in-law Trent Adam and his son-in-law Alton ‘Butch’ Erickson.

Bob will be lovingly remembered for his strong faith, friendly disposition, his generous spirit, and his sense of humor. He will be dearly missed by those he leaves behind.

Bob will be dearly missed. I enjoyed talking with him when he came to Walgreens on Erie avenue. My mother Shirley Schilling and I thought of him often. Prayers and hugs for all the family in this time of loss

I offer my deepest condolences to the family. I enjoyed being a neighbor to Bob and Liz the 5 yrs I lived there until I got married and moved to Port Washington,WI.

Hi Hueller Family, Please accept my condolences on the passing on your husband/dad..... I have many, many fond memories of our times on 15th Street and the patience that was shown to us acting like idiots. Mr Hueller had a great sense of humor(which he needed to raise Dan). I am on a field trip on Friday so I will not be in attendance, but please know my thoughts and prayers are and will continue to be with you.

I am saddened to hear that this wonderful songbird has left us for his heavenly home. How much better the music will be with tuned pianos and his voice up above. My sincere condolences. Be strong and know the Lord is with you and always willing to listen.

Dear Liz and family, We were saddened to read of Bob's passing. He tuned our 100-year-old Steinway piano in Plymouth for many years before we gave the piano to our daughter. Bob was cheerful and easy to talk to; we always looked forward to his visits. He will surely be missed by all whose lives he touched. He brought music everywhere he went!
