Alvin Malvitz “Al” a longtime New Berlin resident passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at AngelsGrace Hospice at the age of 91. He was born in the town of Gardner, Wisconsin on August 7, 1931, the son of George and Amanda (Corbesier) Malvitz. He grew up in Sturgeon Bay and on November 15, 1952 he married his beloved wife of 70 years, Viola (Maki) at Salem Ev. Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay, WI. They came to the Waukesha area in 1954 and later settled in New Berlin. Al proudly served his country in the United States Army in the Korean War and was a member of the American Legion Post 0488 in New Berlin. Al took great joy taking motorcycle trips with his wife, Vi, and with his friends. Put a chainsaw, hunting rifle or fishing rod in his hands and he was happy. He also enjoyed spending time with his many friends traveling by car, bus, cruise ship and motorcycle. Al was a tree expert (owner of Ben’s Tree Service) and plumber by profession and a great handyman at heart. However, his smile was extra big and warm whenever he could be with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Alvin and Viola have been longtime members of Trinity Lutheran Church.

He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife, Viola and their children, John (Jennie) Malvitz of Fayetteville, NC, Thomas (Renee) Malvitz of Menomonie, Daniel Malvitz of New Berlin and Sharon (Kelly) Moran of Waukesha. He was the proud grandfather of Debbie Karpinecz, Ginger Malvitz, Christopher (Libby) Malvitz, Emily (Kenny) Murray, Mac Chavez, Erin (Greg Morness) Malvitz, Nicholas Malvitz, Hayley (Mike) Keenlyne, Kristopher (Rachel) Corleone, Molly (Adam) McCarthy, Matthew (Natasha) Moran, Tasha (Ben Schulz) Booth, Cody (Kaitlin) Booth, and great grandchildren, Bianca, Matthew, Thaison, Jack, Tylor, Preston  (Aidyn), Sophia,  Tryce, Talon, Treyton, Cadence, Kensey, Jayden, Kyla, Claire, Karina, Cayden, Isabella, Channing, Aubrey and Hazel. Alvin is also survived by his brother Melvin (Gloria) Malvitz of Sturgeon Bay and sister Bernice Gipp of Crivitz.
