Robert Dean Hegwood

April 4, 1931 ~ August 1, 2018 (age 87)

Robert D. Hegwood, age 87 of Dousman, WI, passed away on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at Three Pillars Skilled Nursing Facility in Dousman. Bob was born April 4, 1931 to Jimmie and Grace (Stevens) Hegwood of Perkins County, Nebraska. Bob married Barbara Jean Peregrine August 18, 1951 in Grant, Nebraska.

Bob was an entrepreneur, with many admirable qualities, which he taught his children by example. These qualities he learned early in life, growing up during the dust bowl on a Nebraskan homestead. What it takes to be successful, abundance of stick-to-itiveness, energy, thought, and work ethic- Bob never stopped striving for success. His most successful business adventure began late in his career. When some people are thinking of an early retirement, he was in the midst of creating a new family business, with the help of his wife Barb, sons Rob and Eric. The company became an industry leader, developing print-on-demand, and electronic distribution. Bob was a role model to his children and hundreds of employees. His family witnessed many of his personal successes and shared in some of them.

Bob and Barb retired in 2008 to the Town of Eagle. They spent many years of enjoyment creating new gardens and beautiful walking paths throughout their property. He shared his love of cooking and loved having his family around him.

Bob was loved and will be remembered by his wife of 67 years Barbara (Peregrine) Hegwood; brother Ron and (Lou) Hegwood of Imperial NE; Six children: Brent (Jackie) Hegwood of Eagle, Ron (Karen) Hegwood of Brookfield, Rob (Betsy) Hegwood of Brookfield, Eric (Diane) Hegwood of Nashotah, JoEllen Hegwood of Wauwatosa, and KayLynn Hegwood of Fitchburg. Bob was a cherished grandfather of seven: Chad (Molly) Hegwood, Chelsea (Brandon) Famularo, Kali Hegwood, Ryan (Heidi) Hegwood, Tyler Hegwood (fiancée Johanna Bekedam), Jonathan Hegwood, and Christopher Hegwood; great grandfather of six: Jackson, Charlie, Judd and Eddie Hegwood, and Joe and Ben Famularo. Bob will be missed and remembered by other family and friends.

Private family services will be held, with burial at Oak Grove Cemetery in Eagle.
