Glenn William Moerschel, 85, of Waukesha passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with complications from a form of dementia. He was born October 28, 1937 the son of Palma and Bill Moerschel. He attended Cedarburg schools and went on to undergraduate and post graduate studies in the U W system. He and his wife Barbara were married on July 16, 1960.
Glenn was a humble, gentle and witty human being who loved his family and working with kids as a high school counselor and coach for 38 years. He became involved in teaching and counseling parents of young boys at Lad Lake Residential Treatment Center.
Glenn was a longtime pitcher in the Land O’ Lakes Baseball League and for many years he coached in the Waukesha Youth Baseball Program. After retirement, golf became his passion. He was fortunate to take on a part time job at Morningstar Gold Club. This offered him the opportunity to golf often. Greg and Tim eagerly played with Glenn and could sometimes beat him. Most of all great memories were created.
Glenn was a devoted husband and father to his sons and his 5 noisy schnauzers. He never missed a game or activity in which his kids participated. His support was unconditional and unwavering.
He also enjoyed attending the grandkids school plays, concerts and sporting events and went to as many as possible.
He was very active and enjoyed gardening, wood carving, working out at Westwood, reading, church, spending time at the library and classic enrichment classes at WCTC, sheepshead and napping.
