Robert Domenic Comperini

M, b. September 18, 1929, d. December 1, 2015

Family 2: Herta Langner

Biography

  • Birth: Robert Domenic Comperini was born on September 18, 1929 in Rockford, Winnebago Co, Illinois.
  • Marriage: He was married on December 21, 1985 in Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died on December 1, 2015, at age 86, in Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: The Comperini Family is sad to announce the loss of our beloved patriarch, Robert Dominic Comperini on 12/01/2015. He passed away in Appleton, WI after a short illness. Robert was born in Rockford, Illinois on 09/18/1929, and was the son of the late Robert Comperini and Jennie (Pellegrini) Comperini.

    Robert served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Cusk and was honorably discharged in 1950. He was employed for a short time by Valley Iron Works and Larry’s Ambulance Service. He worked the remainder of his career for the City of Appleton Water Department, retiring after 35 years.

    Robert is survived by his wife, Herta (Langner). Robert met Herta when he was visiting a patient at AMC. Their paths crossed again while each was taking dance lessons at Valley Social. Sometime later, he told his instructor, “I’m going to marry her someday”. The rest was history. They would have been married 30 years on December 23rd, 2015.

    Robert was previously married to the late Maryln P. Janssen of Little Chute, WI. She preceded him in death on Oct. 24, 1981. Their four surviving children are Robert G. Comperini, III. (fiancé Christyl); Michael G. (Helen); Daniel G. (Patty); and Mary G. (formerly married to Bernie Stoffel). Robert was also preceded by his late daughter-in-law Terry (wife of Robert G.). Robert was a loving Stepfather to Eva and John (Cindy) Langner.

    Robert was a proud grandfather of Robert Daniel Comperini (“Rob”), Tiffany, Abby, Shane, Melyssa, Logan, Brett, Celia, and several great grandchildren.

    Traveling with Herta, bowling, cooking, playing poker & craps, computers, learning Spanish, and gardening were amongst Robert’s many hobbies. He valued family and had an affinity for the underdogs (canine and human). He was unabashedly human. He stood up for what he believed in. He was intelligent but not pretentious. He held a strong work ethic, and he had a soft heart. He was a good man who overcame his share of adversity, loved life, and was truly one of a kind. The family has been blessed for the life he has shared, and grateful for the gift of extended time. Of course it never quite seems like enough. We deeply grieve his loss and celebrate his life. "Until we meet again,..."

    Special thanks to Dr. Fischer, Dr. Thiel, Staff at Rennes Health and Rehabilitation, St. Elizabeth Hospital, and all of the friends and family. A private memorial will be held for family on Saturday, Dec. 12th.

    Robert loved his dogs and all animals. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your local animal shelter or to the Outagamie County Dog Park. Check donations can be sent to: Outagamie County Dog Park, Attn: Robert Comperini Memorial, 1375 E. Broadway Drive, Appleton, WI 54913.
