Obituary for Adolph Becherer

Adolph Becherer, age 81, passed away peacefully with family by his side on Sunday, November 29 in his home in Minocqua, WI.

Adolph was born August 12, 1939, in the town of Hull, WI, and was preceded in death by his parents, Willard and Alice, his first wife, Letsy, and by his sister, Patricia. Adolph is survived by his wife Patricia of 36 years and by children Tena (Keith Klettke) and Hal Becherer and by step children Jon (Beckett) Mathews, Jessica (Mark) Williamson and Joel (Malissa) Mathews. He was a fun-loving and dedicated grandfather to Isabel, Grace, Julia, Abby, Jake, Kate, Abraham, Frank, Elizabeth (Alex) and Anna. He is further survived by his siblings Elsie, Marie, Dorothy, JoAnne, John, Paul and David and numerous other relatives and friends.

Adolph was a graduate of Colby High School, proudly served in the US Amy and was involved with the American Legion. He worked as a commercial carpenter and was a proud member of the carpenters union for more than 50 years.

He was a member of Peace Lutheran Church of Arbor Vitae, WI, and served as an elder and on the board of trustees for previous churches.

He and Pat fulfilled their lifelong dream of retiring and building a home on a lake in the North Woods. He enjoyed nature, wildlife, hunting, fishing, volunteering at the local food pantry, playing cards and spending time with friends and family.

He was cremated and a private family service will be held at Colby Memorial Cemetery at a later date.
