Our beloved Robert “Keith” Libnoch lost his battle with cancer at home surrounded by loved ones on Tuesday, June 13, 2017. Keith was born on October 17, 1957 in Jacksonville, FL. He was one of five children and the son of Alexi Ishie and Dr. Joseph Libnoch. The family moved to Milwaukee, WI when Keith was 9. He attended St. John’s Cathedral High School on Milwaukee’s east side where he dated Jean Ann, the love of his life, marrying in 1984. Years later, Keith and Jean Ann left the city behind to raise their young daughters in Neshkoro, WI and later moved to Wautoma, WI. It was central Wisconsin that Keith felt most at home, as he loved being outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, syrup maker, morel mushroom enthusiast and an amazing cook. He also loved cars and worked in auto parts his whole adult life retiring as parts manager from Plach Automotive in New London after 23 years. Keith will be joyfully remembered for his quick wit and dry sense of humor and greatly missed by all who knew him.
