Obituary: Jeff Mengelt

September 10, 2022

 Jeff Mengelt died on September 10, 2022, from complications following a stroke. He was 70 years old.

Jeff had many interests, ranging from travel, reading and music to specialty beers, wine and cooking. He loved studying history, especially that    of WWII, and for 20 years volunteered for the DNR assisting with Chinook salmon-rearing at the Strawberry Creek Weir. He was proud to serve as a Wisconsin State Trooper until his retirement in 1990. 

Jeff liked people and they enjoyed being around him. We’re going to miss his sense of humor; his silliness and love of being a smart-ass made us all laugh. 

To honor Jeff’s life, please be kind to each other. If you would like to donate to a charity in Jeff’s memory, consider HELP of Door County or The Salvation Army in the Wisconsin & Upper Michigan Area.
