Robert Harry Rampke, 89, of Kouts passed away Saturday, April 9, 2016 at home. He was born May 23, 1926 in Boone Township to Harry & Ruth (Hallberg) Rampke and attended Kouts schools. Robert was a true lifetime farmer in Porter County, never residing more than a couple miles from his birthplace. His legacy is one of equipment fabrication as he invented numerous pieces of farm equipment to make his vocation more efficient. It is these “projects” created from his active mind that will endure in his family’s memories.  On January 16, 1949 he married Elsie Jean Storey who preceded him in death in 2008. Survivors include their children: Dennis (Gail) Rampke of Hebron, Pamela (Mike) Hendrix of Tobaccoville, NC, Leann (Jim) Gorby of Hebron, sister, Arlene (Harry) Forse of Anderson, IN, grandchildren: Kimberly (Brian) Swartz, Erin (Richard) Strickland, Lauren (Gary) Ludwig & Leah (Michael) Woods all of Porter County and four great grandchildren. He was also preceded in death by his parents and step-mother, Mary (Thatcher) Rampke.
A visitation will be held Tuesday from 3 – 7 pm at Kosanke Funeral Home, 105 Indiana Ave., Kouts. The funeral service will begin at 11:00 am Wednesday at Hebron Christian Church, 202 Sigler St., Rev. Chris Shrum officiating with burial at Cornell Cemetery.  Memorial donations may be made to Hebron Christian Church.
