John Frank Bramschreiber

January 10, 1927 - August 6, 2018

John F. Bramschreiber, 91, began his life journey January 10, 1927 on the family farm located on Bramschreiber Road near Little Suamico, Wisconsin. Accompanied by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and faith in Almighty God, he traveled as far as Korea and Europe in the United States Army in service to his country as First Lieutanant before coming to Owensboro. He completed his journey to his eternal home in Heaven on August 6, 2018, while in the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky at the Heartford House.

Life spent growing up on the farm dealing with northeast Wisconsin winters and not having the use of machinery, instilled in the Bramschreiber family a work ethic that served John in all that he did. This was especially true of his 30 years with the Owensboro Fire Department retiring as Captain. John had been a member of Buena Vista Baptist Church since 1992. An avid Green Bay Packers fan, he loved cheering them on and watching movies Sunday afternoons with his dear friend Sam Riley.

His eternal destination finds him reunited with his parents, John and Martha Bramschreiber, brothers Robert “Bob”, Harold “Bud”, Ray, and James “Jim” Bramschreiber, sister, Fern Wussow, and a son James “Jim” Bramschreiber.

Survivors include his brother Dean (Ann) Bramschreiber of Green Bay, Wisconsin, sons, Roy “R.D.” (Kay), John (Tandy), and Robert “Bob” (Stephanie) Bramschreiber, all of Owensboro, daughter, Martha (Ron) Crumbaker of Livermore, a stepson Terry (Tammy) Mathis of Owensboro, 16 grandchildren; Amanda (Jessie), Eric (Emily), Craig (Melissa), Nick (Jessica), Drew, Ben (Jessie), Molly, Nolan (Sierra), and Luke (Caitlin) Bramschreiber, Nate Crumbaker, Calob Bramschreiber, Scott Mathis, Abby Crumbaker, Cole Crumbaker, Liam Bramschreiber, and Emma Mathis, eight great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
