Reverend Frederick A. Bischoff

August 16, 1955 — January 21, 2021

Bischoff, Reverend Frederick A., age 65, of Yorkville, formerly of Waterford, passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital due to complications from COVID – 19 on January 21, 2021. Fred was born in Milwaukee, WI on August 16, 1955, the son of the late Ellsworth “Bud” and Beridella “Bea” (nee. Semerau) Bischoff. He spent his early life in Milwaukee where he was a graduate of Concordia High School. He continued his education at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Fred served as a Vicar in Beecher, Illinois for one year, and in two parishes in Montana: Redeemer Lutheran in Hardin and St. John’s in St. Xavier. On December 26, 1976 he married Lori A. Schoening. Reverend Frederick A. Bischoff was then called to St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Waterford, Wisconsin where he served over 37 years as Pastor, Leader, and friend. The last eight years he served along with current Pastor Joshua Conradt. He retired in August of 2020, and Fred and Lori joined Grace Lutheran in Oak Creek. Fred looked forward to more time with his golf game, and carpentry projects around the house. He will be sadly missed by so many lives that he touched during his earthly journey.

Survived by loving wife of 44 years, Lori, of Yorkville, one son, Phil of Big Bend, two sisters-in-law: Suzanne (Robert) Sandison, Christine Krueger; brother-in-law, Steven (Suzanne) Schoening, nieces and nephews and many other loving relatives and friends.
Preceded in death by his parents.
