POYNETTE -- Robert J. “Bob” Rittmeyer, age 60, of Poynette, passed away surrounded by his loved ones on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at Meriter Hospital in Madison after a courageous and hard-fought fight.

Robert was born on September 21, 1962, in Belvidere, IL, the son of James and Sharron (Seiple) Rittmeyer.  Robert, fondly known to many as Bob the Milkman, owned and operated a Dean`s milk route for the majority of his career. Through this he made many lasting relationships and worked incredibly hard to provide for his family. Bob especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, loved to play Monopoly with friends and working outdoors.  Bob will forever be remembered for his love of pig roasting, his beloved Maverick and epic Badger tailgate parties.
