Passed away Peacefully Monday June 11, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.  Dear son of the late Frederick C. and Esther Henke.  Beloved husband of Dawn Henke for 60 ½ years.  Loving dad of Brian (Heidi) Henke, Charles (Jayne) Henke and Todd (Laura) Henke.  Proud grandpa of Andrew (Melissa) Henke, Theresa (Travis) Muench, Nicole (Shawn) Newby, Nicholas (Angela) Henke, Grant (Katie) Henke, Alex Henke, Holly (Chris) Winscher, Laura (Tyler) Uitenbroek and Christine Gries.  Great-grandpa of Graham, Clara Henke, Audrey, Emberlynn Newby, Justin Gries and Marlon Uitenbroek. Uncle of Guy (Sue) Henke and family, Jed (Danielle), Trevor and Jacobson Henke, Amy (Tony) and Sydney Campisi.  Also loved by other relatives and many dear friends.

Fred was an Honorary Past Master of Independence Lodge #80, Tripoli Temple, Past Chief of Provost Unit, Whitnall Park Shrine Club, Hillbillies, Retired Police Association, Milwaukee Retiree Association, NRA.

Fred served in the U.S. Army in Germany.  He was a Police Officer for the City of Milwaukee for 33 years.

He also held many varied jobs both before and after the Police Department, from which he gained much knowledge, making him a learned man able to help others on many fronts.

He was a selfless man who was happiest when helping others, especially when driving handicapped children to the Shriner’s Hospital for children in Chicago for their appointments.  This gave him great satisfaction; therefore, was the Transportation Coordinator for Tripoli Temple for several years.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, playing cards and watching sports on T.V., and of course, being with family.

He will be missed by all who were a part of his life.

Our sincere thanks to Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice, W2850 Road 28, Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085-0143 for their special care.
