Robert Clifton Temperly, age 88 of Hazel Green, WI, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 16, 2022, ready to go home to be with Jesus. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Cremation rites have been accorded. The Furlong Funeral Chapel, Galena is assisting the family.

He was born September 20, 1933, the son of Russell F. and Margaret S. (Farrey) Temperly. Bob graduated from Hazel Green High School with the class of 1951. He served in the United States Navy from November of 1955 until his honorable discharge in August of 1957. A quote he held close to his heart was, “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.”

Bob was united in marriage to his wife of sixty-five years Sharie Diane Seekins on August 17, 1956, in Oak Harbor, WA and she survives. After getting married in Oak Harbor WA, they headed back to the family farm in Hazel Green, where he farmed until his retirement.

After retirement, he was a blackjack dealer on the Diamond Joe, Robert’s River Rides, and the Silver Eagle. Bob loved sports and was an avid St. Louis Cardinals, Wisconsin Badgers, and Green Bay Packers fan. He loved his family deeply and would always show up for sports events, recitals, school plays, and band and choir performances. He had a sharp memory for history and was often referred to as the family historian. He was a member of the Beginning Point Church, Benton, WI.

He is survived by his wife, Sharie, his son, Trent Temperly, of Platteville, WI, and daughter, Tara (Gary) Tess, of Germantown, WI, five grandchildren, Jaida Temperly, of Germany, Jordan Temperly, of St. Louis, MO, Joshua (Danielle) Temperly, of Dyersville, IA, Justin Temperly of Middleton, WI and Alyssa (Tom) Drida of Germantown, WI, a great-granddaughter, Madison Drida and two great-grandsons, Owen Drida and Carson Temperly, sister-in-law, Sue (Ron) Christensen, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Russell Temperly Jr. sister-in-law Joanne Temperly and brother-in-law, Kirk Seekins.

The family would like to thank his exceptional caregiver Nancy Marty and special friends, Larry Redfearn, Ralph Stienle, Carl Babler, Dwight and Sharon Klaassen, and his card-playing friends at Platteville Senior Center.
