  • Robert Peschel - 2021
Bob Peschel grew up far from the Badger State, but his love for hockey began in his native New Jersey, where he learned to play on the frozen pond, and where he learned how to become the grinder, a title that he would carry on into his future life. He continued to play on club teams during his college years, and in the late 1970s, made his way to the Milwaukee area, where he would become an integral part of the Milwaukee Winter Club Association, and to the ranks of the officials of the Wisconsin Hockey Officials Association. He began as a parent coach at Winter Club in the mid-1990ís and started officiating in 2001.

For the past 25 years, Peschel has been completely dedicated to Milwaukee Winter Club, WAHA Region 5 and WHOA. As a coach and volunteer, he served Winter Club and Region 5 for 11 years, either as a coach, manager or officiating coordinator. Beginning in 2001, he served USA Hockey, WAHA and WHOA on the officiating side. He began as a WIAA official in 2006, working multiple Regional and Section Playoff Games, and two WIAA Girls State Tournaments. He has been a WHOA Region Director for eight seasons and Vice President for four years. He has also been involved with the WEHL and the Kohlman Cup. As a mentor, he has passed on his love of the game to his son Kyle who serves as a NCAA Division III official and a USA Hockey Seminar Instructor.

Outside of hockey, Peschel is very active in his community and frequently volunteers his time and expertise as an environmental engineer. Peschel and his wife Susan live in Shorewood and have two children, Alison and Kyle.
