Uncle Chico was the giver of joy and laughs! When my parents would tell us kids that we were going to Chicago to see grandma and grandpa, we knew we were in for fun with Chico!! He taught me songs that would drive my parents crazy, and were borderline inappropriate for my age. He would come down stairs in his towels after his shower with q-tips hanging out of his ears. He always made me laugh. I am forever grateful to have been a part of his life.

My Favorite Uncle, he knew every family get together would end with "Can I come to your house to play Barbies with Cindy and Dee Dee?" His answer never failed. Even if I got homesick and wanted to go home, he never blinked at shuffling me back home. Memories of all the times he made us laugh til we cried, how beautiful his relationship was with his Mother and I cannot express how much he loved and cared for my Mom, his sister Gloria. He took care of her and was her protector his whole life. He spent most of his free time in a boat with a pole in the water (more like 3 or 4), and he was the best fisherman around. He was a champion billiards player and an avid dart player in his day. Chico Bean - you definitely will be greatly missed. We love you.

Uncle Chico as we called him, always had a joke or funny story to tell. He made all of us Holzhauer kids crack up laughing when we would visit. I remember him walking downstairs at his house with ear cleaners in his ears...the things you remember. I wish I would have visited more, but life gets in the way. Uncle Chico you will be missed!!! Hope there is fishing up where you are.

I have a memory of Uncle Ronnie! Of course it is a fishing story.
We were on a family trip at River's Edge In Wisconsin Dells fishing and Uncle Ronnie was in his boat fishing.
Mike and I along with Emalie were out in a rented boat. The weather was beautiful and then dark clouds moved in quickly. Rain fell so hard it turned into hail balls. We were terrified and I was covering Emalie from the hail rain that hurt so much. Mike could not get our boat started.
Mike sent Uncle Ronnie an SOS and he came so fast and rescued us in a terrible storm. Anni was waiting in the car at the dock to gather us and get us warm and to safety.
I will always remember how Uncle Ronnie saved us so quickly and expertly and saved the day. We were all soaking wet and scared, but I will always remember how he was our hero and our knight in shining armor that day! Thank you so much Uncle Ronnie! We will always love you

To my old and dear friend, Ronnie. I will always remember our young days hunting for rats with Paul Johnson, Dennis McKamey & Johnny, under the guided supervision of Ed Doran. (Sorry we scared you, Gloria!) Learning to swim at Diversey Harbor at the chains, under the supervision of Lorraine Johnson....Fishing at the “bent bar” at Diversey Harbor, where Ronnie would NEVER quit until he caught a fish, no matter what time it was....I could go on and on...Surely gonna miss you and will always love you!

I will never forget the time us brothers went fishing on the lake and we all were eating donuts so much and he told us its going to be choppy waves and you might not feel good. Well what do you think happened? As the day went on we all started catching so much fish. I believe we caught like 22 salmon.
What was really cool was being on the boat and as we were passing all the restaurants we all were holding up the fish and every one was standing up and clapping. Ill never forget it. I LOVE YOU UNCLE RONNIE. Thanks for the great memory.
