Ned N. Geerdts, 73, of Burlington, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023 at the Elder Care Cottages in Waterford.

Ned was born in Milwaukee on Nov. 14, 1949 to the late Gustave “Goody” and Helen (Haslam) Geerdts. He grew up in Milwaukee in a small home on Fratney Street and attended Fratney Grade School and Riverside High School.

Ned worked for Complete Tree Service for many years. He enjoyed his cowboy hat collection, watching the Packers, casino trips, making people laugh, playing cribbage, spending time at the family cottage on Lake Winneconne and celebrating the Geerdts Christmas in July party.

Ned is survived by his children, Brett Geerdts, Tracy (David) Weber, and Brian (Julia) Geerdts; grandchildren, Devin, Dylan, Dante (Alyssa Wynn), and Tristan Geerdts, Nathan and Chloe Weber, and Gabriel and Preston Geerdts; great grandchild Paisley Geerdts, brother Jerry Geerdts and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ned was preceded in death by his parents, sister Pat Haferbecker, three brothers James, Michael and Thomas Geerdts, and love of his life Kathy Hauer.

The family would like to thank Elder Care Cottages for their care and compassion during this time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice in Ned’s honor.

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2023, at Integrity Celebration Center, 2789 Browns Lake Dr., with visitation from noon until 3 p.m. Celebrate Ned’s life with us the way he lived! Come share a few memories, a few drinks, lots of laughs, and the Packer game, and come leisurely dressed (suit).
