Brian A. Janquart , 66, of Marinette, passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2018.

Brian was born to Joseph and Camille “Connie” Janquart in Menominee, MI. He attended St. Ann’s School, then graduated from Marinette Catholic Central High School in 1969.

He proudly served our country as a Specialist 5 in the United States Army. He served in Vietnam from 1970 - 1971, then, Savannah, GA from 1971-1972. He then relocated his family back to Marinette, WI, where he resided for the next 46+ years.

Brian found a sense of community and much excitement in sports, in particular, the Green Bay Packers. To say he was a fan, is an understatement. He enjoyed many hours on the golf course with family and friends. He appreciated the art of gardening and bar-be-que, which contributed to his passion for food. Whenever you saw Brian, it wouldn’t be surprising if he shared a joke, or story with you. “Long story, short”…is how most of them started. He had a soft spot for his furry friends and found much pleasure in the companionship of his cat, Calvin, for 20 years.

Brian retired in May 2013, after working for the Ansul/Tyco Corporation for 39 years. But mostly, Brian found comfort spending time at his home, enjoying a good show, in particular, The Price is Right, cooking, or listening to music. Some of his favorite tunes were from the Beatles (Hey Jude) and Louis Armstrong (What a Wonderful World).

He is preceded in death by his father and mother.

Brian is survived by his children: Michelle (Chad) Lindstrom, Brian (Mandi) Janquart, and Joseph (Laura) Janquart; grandchildren: Paige, Jacob, Lucius, Gavin, Madison, Myla, Payton and Tanner; siblings: Roger (Jeanie) Janquart, Judith Janquart, and Gina (Ed) Buda; ex-wife: Mary (Hannot) Janquart; a special friend: Evelyn Gilgenbach, and his cat, Anakin.
