Obituary: Keith J. Bridenhagen

March 18, 1949 – July 23, 2019 

Keith Bridenhagen was born to Hollis “Baldy” and Lucille Bridenhagen. He died at age 70.

He is survived by his wife, Christine; his daughter, Barrett (Marc Meredith); son, Ivan (Brittney Smith); daughter, Heidi (Jeremy Schmal); grandsons, Hudson and Dempsey; and granddaughters, Leisel and Isabella. Arnie, Fred, Richie and Holly are surviving siblings.

Keith was inspired by his love of family and family of friends, and by his relationship with nature. He continued to educate himself on natural and national history and loved to paint with flowers and make beautiful things with his hands, which were always busy. He was a natural leader and enjoyed serving our community when he was needed.

A memorial celebration at the family home will be held Aug. 18, 1-4 pm. All are welcome to share memories and stories.

Casperson Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Sister Bay is assisting the Bridenhagen family. Expressions of sympathy, memories and photos of Keith can be shared through his tribute page at
