Bob and Jackie F. Olstinski were united in marriage on February 20, 1954 in Dubuque, IA.
Bob worked various businesses in Marshfield until He purchased the Downtowner Supper Club which he owned and operated for many years with help of his wife and children and great employees. Bob always made you feel like you were part of his family. This is where he met the best of friends and those friendships lasted a lifetime. He and Jackie took many trips to Las Vegas, especially when the WI Badgers played football out there. He also enjoyed going to his annual Milwaukee Brewers game. There you could see him on TV, cheering on the Brewers. He was an avid Marshfield Tiger Fan. He enjoyed watching members of his family play football, basketball and hockey, his greatest joy was watching his grandson play and win the State Football Championship in Madison in 1997. He looked forward to hunting season so he could go hunting with the boys, shooting a buck this past season, He also enjoyed a good card game and was very proud of his first perfect cribbage hand this past October. The biggest joy of his life where his grandchildren who he talked nonstop about. And then he was blessed with 5 Great Grandchildren which were the light of his life. If you were a friend of Bob's you were a friend for life. He always had time to stop and say Hi. He and Jackie were married for 56 years and without her love and support he never would have lived such a full life.
