April 21, 1929 — October 9, 2015

Tengler, Harvey Nick, age 86, of Crooked Lake, WI passed away peacefully outdoors with his daughter by his side at Angels Grace Hospice on October 9, 2015. Harvey was born in New England, North Dakota to John and Theresa (nee. Engelman) Tengler and while in Elementary school, his family moved to Wisconsin.

Upon his return he was drafted into the Army where he served for two years in Korea. During his time there he learned drafting. After returning to Wisconsin he attended Marquette University to study Mechanical Engineering. On June 5, 1954, he married the love of his life, Nancy Kay Ihling, at Sacred Hearts Church in Franklin. Harvey was a Mechanical Engineer applying this knowledge to every aspect of his house, to attic doors, boat winches, etc. Harvey was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing and nature. He also enjoyed motorcycle driving with his wife, Nancy. After retirement he taught himself how to use a computer and most recently bought himself a Mac Book and installed wireless internet.

His love of learning was witnessed by his reading 6 magazines a week and countless internet searches regarding various science, technology and history sites.
