Robert L. Boughton

November 23, 1937 — February 7, 2021

Robert L. “Bob” Boughton, went to his heavenly home Sunday February 7, 2021, after a brief illness. He was born on November 23, 1937, the son of the late Lu Roy and Viola (Vohsberg) Boughton. He was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years Gretchen (Krueger). The two of them met while they were working as dance instructors for Arthur Murray Studios and were married on March 25, 1961.

Bob was a veteran having been called into active duty twice while serving in the Wisconsin National Guard. He was a carpenter by trade, working in the carpenters shop at Appleton Papers Combined Locks Mill for almost 30 years before retiring in 1999. His love of woodworking led him down the path of several big projects outside of work. He built the family’s first home in Menasha and later remodeled an old farm house in Dale. He was also a sportsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Bob was an active member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Hortonville, when he lived in Dale. He served on the board of elders there and also helped out with buildings and grounds.

Bob is survived by his four children: Daniel (Karen) Boughton of Hortonville and their children Bryce, Nicole, and Sara; Timothy (Angela) Boughton of Black Creek and their children Nicholas (Lizzy) Boughton, Alexzandria Boughton, and Coulter Boughton; Erick (Laura) Boughton of Morton Grove, Illinois and their children Elizabeth and Liam; and Jennifer Carrick of New London and her son Findley.  There are also two great-grandsons Levi and Rory.  He is also survived by his brother Jim (Kay) Boughton of Arizona, many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, an infant granddaughter Kyra Carrick; sisters: Joyce Boughton and Dolores Kujawa; and brother-in-law, Raymond Kujawa.
