Alex Strobel joined his Lord and Savior on September 5th, 2022, just days after reaching the milestone of 100 years, having been born September 2, 1922. He was the youngest of six children of Norbert and Regina (Werner) Strobel, his loving parents who proceeded him in death. He was also proceeded in death by siblings Melvin, Marcellus and Sylvester Strobel, Beatrice (Oscar) Sturm and Sylvia (John) Dietz. Alex was also blessed to have nieces and nephews too numerous to name here.
Alex graduated from Appleton High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He served in the Army Air Corps in World War II. He returned to Appleton where operated an insurance agency and invested in real estate.
He married another real estate broker, Ruth Bohl in 1969. Ruth had two sons, Chuck (a retired orthodontist who lives in Brookfield, Wisconsin) and David (a semi-retired attorney and CPA who lives in Milwaukee). Chuck and David are forever grateful to Alex for making their mother happy in 44 years of a wonderful marriage. Together Alex and Ruth saw much of the world. They moved to Naples, Florida in 1982 where Ruth’s sons and grandchildren were frequent visitors over nearly three decades.
Ruth proceeded Alex in death in 2013. Alex moved to the Arlington Retirement Community in 2016. He was universally liked there, as everywhere, and known for walking several miles each day in his mid-90’s, for his always sunny disposition, and flashy dress that frequently included plaid pants.
Burial will be in Riverside Memorial Cemetery in a private family ceremony. No flowers or sadness please, only prayers of thanks for a wonderful life.
