Schnoebelen, Nicholas E.

Nicholas E. Schnoebelen, 66, Appleton, great husband, father, grandfather, friend, passed away suddenly, on Monday, Sept. 27, 2004.

Nicholas was born on Oct. 6, 1937, in Tomahawk, Wis., son of the late Herman and Katherine (Yenor) Schnoebelen. On June 9, 1958, Nicholas married June Welk in Marshfield, Wis. June was the love of his life and he cared for her until her death in 2003. The family lived in La Crosse for 23 years, before relocating to Appleton in 1985. Nicholas attended the Minocqua school system, where he excelled in music. He graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a degree in music and was a band leader for 30 years. Nicholas worked towards his master’s degree at UW-Madison, and then earned a computer science degree from Winona State. He also taught drivers education. Nicholas loved the North Woods and spending time outdoors with family and friends, no matter what the season. Nicholas also enjoyed boating on the river, cars and motorcycles. He was a compassionate man, who touched the lives of the many people he met through his teaching and music.

Nicholas is survived by his two daughters, Kathy Boldt and children, Lindsey and Kelly and son-in-law, David Boldt, all of Madison; Joanie (Dale) Villers, and children, Nick, Nicole, and Sarah, all of Algoma; his sister, Anne (John Meixner) Schnoebelen, Houston, Texas; sister-in-law, Verna (“Snick”) Quicker and nephew, David Quicker, all of Altoona.
