Our Uncle Wallace (Wally) Englebert , 98, Algoma, went to be with his wife and family on January 15, 2019. Wallace was a kind and gentle soul, a man of few words with a quiet demeanor.
Wallace, the last surviving of 8 children, was born in Misere, Wisconsin to the late Nestor and Emily (Coisman) Englebert. Wallace was a 1938 graduate of Brussels High School. In 1945 he was united in marriage to Verna Pavlik. Verna passed away in 1988.
In his younger years Wally enjoyed playing cards and bowling. Wally retired from the Algoma Hardwoods. In retirement Wally became an “Algoma Legend” for his daily city walks which he did well into his late 90’s. He was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers.
He is survived by many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Verna; parents; in-laws; and his five sisters, Jennie (Herman) Baudhuin, Laura (Harry) Rass, Verna Englebert, Gertrude (Norman) Hansen, Mildred (Joseph) Deprez; and two brothers, Gilbert (Agnes) Englebert and Lawrence (Helen) Englebert.
