Kevin J. “Swamp” Karstaedt, 52, of School Hill died peacefully on Monday May 18, 2020 after a six-month battle with pneumonia.
He was born April 22,1968 in Sheboygan, son of Gerald Karstaedt and the late Sally A. (Jacob) Karstaedt.
Kevin attended Kiel High School. He was employed with Alpine Insulation for 13 years. He later joined his brothers as co-owners of D. Karstaedt Insulation, for the past 16 years. He was active with many sports, especially volleyball in his earlier years. Kevin was an avid fisherman, spending many weekends in fishing tournaments. Kevin was the life of the party; if he wasn’t fishing, he could always be found socializing with his friends.
Survivors include his dad, Gerald; brother Corey Karstaedt; sister-in-law Carrie (Tyler) Guell; and nieces and nephew Morgan, Caitlyn (fiance Perez Weber), and Cameron. He is further survived by aunts, uncles, many cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his mother, Sally, and brother David.
Per Kevin’s wishes cremation has taken place. He will be laid to rest at Union Cemetery, 19720 CTH XX, rural Kiel, Louis Corners, Town of Schleswig. Graveside services will be held at Union Cemetery on Wednesday, May 27 starting at 11 a.m. Family and friends are asked to gather at the cemetery starting at 10:30 a.m. with the service starting at 11 a.m. The family asks that you use your best discretion for distancing yourself safely at the service.
