De Groot, Rendall D.
Rendall D. De Groot, 92, Green Bay, died peacefully Thursday morning, Oct. 23, 2008, at Unity Hospice residence.
Born in Wausaukee, on Oct. 27, 1915, he is the son of the late John and Justine (De Bot) De Groot.
"Ren" left the farm at the age of 18 and moved to Green Bay, to live with his sister, Eunice Champeau. He worked at Shefford Cheese where he met his wife of 61 years, Mabel L. Van Eyck.
Ren enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1941, to give service to his country, hoping to come home and marry. World War II interfered with his marriage plans but Mabel stepped in and proposed when he came home on leave. They married Oct. 4, 1943, at SS. Peter & Paul Church.
Ren was sent to Panama to train for jungle warfare but ended up in Europe in time to participate in the Battle of the Bulge.
After the war he returned to Green Bay and started R. De Groot Homebuilders. Ren was a founding member, Past President, and ultimately the last surviving charter member of the Brown County Home Builders Association. He was chosen Home Builder of the Year in 1981. Ren was Green Bay alderman and Brown County supervisor at the time Preble was annexed to Green Bay.
Ren was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved being with family and spending time at the cottage near Brussels. Besides working night and day he enjoyed travel, bowling, downhill skiing, playing cards and dancing — especially the fox trot. Ren was known for his popcorn and Sunday family breakfast of bacon and eggs.
He is survived by his three children, Karen (Tom) Camilli, Ron (Jody) De Groot, both of Green Bay; and Susan (Joe) Boucher, Madison; seven grandchildren, Peter (Theresa) Camilli, Joe Camilli, Robb De Groot and daughter, Haley, Ryan (Becky) De Groot and daughters, Taylor and Morgan, Ellie Boucher (Steven) Dawson, Bridget Boucher and fiance, Dan Harland, and Willie Boucher; one sister-in-law, Kathy Van Eyck, Green Bay; many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Mabel; one infant son, Brian; 11 brothers and sisters, Ed (Evelyn) De Groot, Ray (Josephine) De Groot, Cy (Rose) De Groot, Eunice (Clarence) Champeau, Gerald De Groot, Harold De Groot, Sr. Mary De Groot, Rita (Paul) Bentley, Jack (Elaine) De Groot, Bob (Sylvia) De Groot and Dick De Groot; one sister-in-law, Mildred (Russell Peterson) (Norman Wilson).
