Nobert C. Brotz, 71, of St. Paul, MN formerly of Sheboygan, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 14, 2022.  He was born September 6, 1950, in Sheboygan to the late Norbert K. and Georgene (Mueller) Brotz.  Norbert attended Holy Name Grade School and graduated from North High School with the Class of 1968.  Norbert went on to graduate from the University of Wisconsin with a Chemical Engineering Degree.  In 1974 he was united in marriage to Deborah Mac Allister, together they raised two children Norbert (Caryn) of Circle Pines. MN and Nicholas of St. Paul, MN.

Having a strong faith Norbert was a member of The Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, MN, and a former member of Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Sheboygan.

Norbert worked as a system analyst for over 25 years before retiring.  He was known as the “capable tinker” at home.  He loved building and fixing things, especially computers and cars while listening to 60’s, 70’s and 80’s rock music. He also enjoyed his daily fresh popcorn.  Norbert was also a veracious reader and exercised every day.  He loved his daily walks around Lake Como with his best friend and wife of 48 years Deborah.  He cherished that time and the many great conversations they had.

Norbert was a wonderful husband and father, always willing to help his family when they needed him.  He is dearly loved by them and will be missed more then he could ever imagine.

He is further survived by his five brothers; Stephen (Debbie), Phillip (Lisa), David (Mary Lou), Brian (Mary) and Vincent, three sisters; Karen (Ron), Christine (Tom), and Sharon, also by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Joseph, and sister Cheryl.
