Van Enkenvoort, Felix R.


Felix R. Van Enkenvoort, 72, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully at home on October 8, 2020.  He was born on September 8, 1948 to the late Henry and Inez (Cornelius) Van Enkenvoort of DePere, Wisconsin.  He graduated from West DePere High School in 1967.  He married Lynn L. Gossen out of high school on December 30, 1967, they had 2 children, and divorced as friends in January 1998.  He met and married his best friend Theresa A. Mueller on September 9, 2009 in a ceremony in their backyard.  He retired from Schreiber Foods, after over 40 years of employment.  He was a very hard working man who had a heart of gold and would be there for anyone.  His smile and laugh was contagious, but it was his joking that brought the smile and laughter to everyone’s face.  He enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, and sports on his recliner with his dogs.  His passions were golfing and bowling with his buddies, and to get all family and friends together for his well-known 4th of July Party.  ‘Booyah’ for everyone.  He achieved a Perfect Bowling Game (300) many times.  He was a loving and dedicated husband, father, brother, grandpa, and friend.
