Obituary for Peter Andrew Zacherl

Peter Andrew Zacherl, 55, passed away as the result of an ATV accident on January 21, 2019. He was born on November 26, 1963 in San Fernando Valley, California to Louis G. Zacherl and Mary L. (Indermuehle) Zacherl-Bohlman.

Peter was the 5th generation owner of Zacherl Funeral Home. At an early age, Pete was helping his father and grandfather with the family business. Peter graduated high school in 1981 at St. Mary’s Springs and graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mortuary Science.

While attending UW-Fond du Lac, Pete met the love of his life, Jennifer Nieman. They were united in marriage at Immanuel Trinity Church on August 5, 1989. Together they were blessed with two children, Daniel and Claire.

Peter enjoyed the outdoors and being in God’s creation more than anything else, whether in the woods, on the lake or especially, mowing the lawn at the funeral home. His laugh was one-of-a-kind and infectious. Peter was the kind of man who would not want a long obituary. He’d say, “If people knew me, then they already know this stuff. It doesn’t need to be in print.”

Pete’s career as a funeral director was only one facet of the way he gave of himself. He cared about the Fond du Lac community and cared for others within the community in countless ways. In an effort to support his community, Peter served on many Boards of Directors, and was a member of several service and fraternal organizations. He was a past president and member of Noon Rotary, including a recipient of Rotary’s esteemed Paul Harris Fellow Award. Pete would give help and assist wherever it was needed, more often than not, without being asked or expecting anything in return.

Peter was a member and strong supporter of the Gratitude Club in Fond du Lac. He had a generous heart full of compassion and believed that everyone deserved love and a second chance.

Peter leaves behind his loving wife, Jennifer, children, Daniel (Sabrina Butler) and Claire, his mother, Mary, and his dog, Maisy, all of Fond du Lac.

He is further survived by four brothers, Louis (Kathy) Zacherl of Broomfield, CO, John (Susan) Zacherl of Fond du Lac, Michael (Julie) Zacherl of Hancock, WI, and Matthew (Melanie) Zacherl of Fond du Lac; parents-in-law, Ron and Nancy Nieman, sister-in-law, Julie (John) Lamancusa, brother-in-law, Mike (Joy) Nieman; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many, many friends.

Peter was preceded in death by his father, Louis Zacherl; sister, Elizabeth Servelle, brother, Joseph Zacherl, two nieces, Nicole and Sarah Servelle, and Robert “Hack” Bohlman.

VISITATION: Pete’s family welcomes the community to a time of visitation at Zacherl Funeral Home, 875 E. Division Street, Fond du Lac, on Sunday, January 27th from 2:00 to 6:00 PM. A second time of visitation will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church, 271 4th Street Way, Fond du Lac, on Monday, January 28th from 11:30 AM until the time of service.

A memorial will be established at a later date.
