Kenneth “Moose” D. Petska, 90, Sheldon, passed away comfortably Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018, at Cornell Health Services.

Kenneth was born June 30, 1928, the son of Alfred and Margaret (Koenig) Petska, in Chippewa County.

As a young man, Kenneth was enlisted in the armed forces and served as military police in the Korean War.

He started farming in Tilden, in 1971, and continued to farm until the late 1980s. Kenneth and his girlfriend, Shirley Brockner, bought Club 27 in Cadott, in 1993, and ran it until 2003. They then retired to Sheldon. There they enjoyed 10 years together, before Shirley’s passing in 2013.

Kenneth remained in Sheldon thereafter, where he enjoyed hunting and fishing with Hunter, reading, and as Kenneth would say, “going around the horn and having a couple beers.” He will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his children – Randy (Carrie) Petska, Debbie Petska, Rosemary Petska and Brian (Lori) Petska; Shirley’s daughter and grandson – Kelly and Hunter Brockner; siblings – Kay Smith, Tom Sr. (Darlene) Petska and Bruce Petska; and many grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; partner of 22 years – Shirley; and 10 siblings – Dorothy Hatfield, Wilfred Petska, Harvey Petska Sr., Francis Petska, Alfred Petska Jr., Rose Wawrzyniak, Raymond Petska, Roger Petska, Margaret Paddock and David Petska.

Services were held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 25, at Sheldon Church of Christ, with Pastor Jeremy Allard officiating. Visitation was from 9:30 a.m., until the time of service Saturday, at the church.

Interment followed the funeral service at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Sheldon.
