Pomerenke, Norman Lee
He was born in Waupaca, WI on September 23, 1975 to Linda (Pomerenke) Mundt. Norman graduated from Weyauwega- Fremont High School. He never married and was a carefree spirit who wanted to enjoy all life had to offer. He was a cook at Simpson’s Restaurant for over 20 years. Recently he made pizzas at Weasel’s on Monday nights. If you saw a man walking down Main street in tie dye, chances are it was Norm. He always wore tie dyed shirts (the unofficial dress in Simpson’s kitchen) and received a new one every birthday from his mother. Norm was very social and could be found at any of the bars around Main Street drinking a PBR, playing pool or doing the shake of the day. Norman enjoyed tying flies for fishing in the river behind his house. He played the drums, hunted and rode motorcycle. He also enjoyed mushroom hunting and taking pictures at sunset.
He is survived by his daughter, Talia Golke, of Waupaca and son, Tanner Krusa; his mother, Linda (Pomerenke) Mundt; stepfather, Larry Mundt; siblings, Jeremy (Tricia) Pomerenke of Ogdensburg, Andrew Mundt of Weyauwega and Rhonda (David) Ortner of Weyauwega; stepbrothers, Jason (Laurie) Mundt of Waupaca and Bill (Amanda) Mundt of Ellabell, GA; grandchildren, Sylas and Maevys Forseth of Waupaca; aunts and uncles: Bill (Pam) Pomerenke of Scandinavia, Lorie (John Witzling) Manteufel of Waupaca, Wayne (Tammy) Pomerenke of Scandinvia, Kelly (Bob) Hansen of Waupaca and Lisa (Greg) Schulke of Waupaca; nieces and nephews: Lillian Mundt; Trenton, Joey, Evelyn and Lucas Ortner; Evan Mundt; Morgan and Meghan Vaughan and Ava Szeker; great-aunts and uncles: Laverne Pomerenke, Mildred Uhl, Rita Lamb, Kathy (Lenny) Goettl, Patrick (Peggy) Murphy.
