October 14, 1924 - October 20, 2019
Watertown, WI -- Edward H. Stuebe, 95 years old, died peacefully at home in Watertown, WI, October 20, 2019. Ed, as everyone knew him, was in the 104th Timberwolf Division under General Terry Allan in WWII. He was in ommunications where he drove jeep to deliver messages with his comrade and friend. He was stationed in Europe and was at the battle of the bulge. He often told recounts of the events he encountered while serving from April 30, 1943 to December 12th 1945. After returning home, he married my mother Carol and they were married 72 amazing years. Ed also opened the very first TV and Radio repair shop in Watertown, located on North 2nd Street. Being his daughter, I can still hear him say, "Stuebe TV and Radio" when he answered his shop phone. My dad would fabricate just about anything out of nothing. During his service in Europe he built a radio that could pick up other continents which he create from a pile of junk he found. Ed was one of the founders and the very first Commodore of the Watertown Boat (outboarders) Club. He built six full scale boats including an airboat and a cabin cruiser. Mom and Dad had many happy hours on the river and lakes in the surrounding areas. He was good at woodworking and enjoyed building gas run, remote controlled model aeroplanes which he flew at the local airport. Ed graduated from Watertown High School in 1942. He then furthered his education at the University of Utah and Milwaukee School of Engineering.
Edward was the son of Walter Stuebe and Frances Dobbratz Stuebe of Watertown. He is survived by his loving wife Carol McLaughlin Stuebe, daughter Mary Stuebe (Watertown), grandson Eric Schuh (Dousman), and granddaghter-in-law Breauna Schuyler Schuh (originally from West Allis).
There will be no service times as family will be grieving privately per Ed's wishes.
Ed was thoughtful, reliable, and would help anyone in a pinch. There are so many memories within the family. He will be greatly missed.
