George Carl Schwarzbauer, 88, of Sturgeon Bay, peacefully passed away at Scandia Village in Sister Bay on March 6, 2019. Ruth, his wife of 64 years, passed just 93 days before him.
George was born on June 10, 1930, to the late George and Christina Brotz Schwarzbauer. George graduated from St. Mary's in Menasha in 1948 and attended Lawrence University in Appleton. After marrying Ruth Juneau on June 26, 1954, he started a real estate company, was a city council member and was proud to be called City Assessor for Appleton for over 20 years. After moving to their retirement home in Sturgeon Bay, George continued working as an Assessor for Sturgeon Bay and other communities. George was a lifelong member of the Kiwanis Club and an active member of St. Joseph's Church in Sturgeon Bay.
