It is with great sadness that we announce that Eric D. Vertein, age 48, of Watertown, WI, was called home to Heaven suddenly on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.
He was born in Baraboo, WI, on May 20, 1969, to Russell and Janet (Belter) Vertein. Eric married Monica Grimm on August 3, 1991. Their marriage was blessed with three sons and three daughters.
Eric attended Martin Luther Preparatory School and graduated from Northwestern Lutheran College in 1991, and went on to earn a Master of Theology Degree from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. He served as a missionary in Sofia, Bulgaria for seven years, after which he served as the pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Crandon, WI. until 2015. For the past two years, he cared for the people at Bethesda Lutheran Communities.
Eric loved spending time with his family, especially playing games, as well as writing and biking. His faith was central to his life.
