Norbert E. Gengler, age 73, of Lancaster, formerly of Bloomington, passed away on Saturday, November 25, 2017, at UW Hospital and Clinics in Madison. He was born on December 30, 1943, in Beetown Township, the son of Edward and Ruth (Stark) Gengler. Norbert attended St. Mary's Catholic School in Bloomington.

In 1982, he opened his own auto mechanic and autobody shop; due to health reasons, he retired in 1996. Norbert enjoyed country western music, farm work and was a jack of all trades.
