Kaiser, Lawrence Anthony (24 AUG 1942 - 10 AUG 2012)

Lawrence Anthony Kaiser, 69, of Jump River, quietly passed away in his sleep, at his cabin on Lake Tiffany, on Friday, Aug. 10, 2012. He was born on August 24, 1942 to the late Anthony and Verna (Lemke) Kaiser. Larry grew up in the Milwaukee area, graduating from Menomonee Falls High in 1961. There he was called "Buckets" and was a star on the football team and even played a little semi-pro ball later.

Larry started working for Western Electric and then went into the Army to serve his country. After the service he moved to the Princeton area working with a construction company and hauling milk as a second job. Later he worked and retired after 30 years, with a perfect attendance record, for Speed Queen at Ripon. Later, after he met Kathleen, he helped her start the Jump River Realty LLC real estate office in October 2000.

Larry had a passion for the outdoors, especially grouse hunting, the gun deer season, and fishing, especially for catfish. He enjoyed his vegetable garden and canning, and loved flowers but his favorites were wildflowers. Larry loved and enjoyed spending time with his family, and always had his dog, Tiffany, a black Newfoundland, walking by his side. She was his companion, traveling with him everywhere in his truck.

Larry is survived by his special love of 16 years, Kathleen Beilfuss of Jump River; his children, James (Tanya) Kaiser of Reedsburg, Todd (Julie) Klawitter of Dalton, Robert (Kristi) Klawitter of Sun Prairie, Debra (Art) Davenport of Wisconsin Dells and Lori (Gary) Witt of Portage; 13 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; godson, Bill Benz of Hixon; and one sister, Fran Becker of Germantown. Kathleen's children, Jake (Catherine) Beilfuss of Medford, Christine (Ken) Conlon of Clintonville, and Debbie (Jeff) Jirikowic of Appleton, and six grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, one brother, Anthony, and a brother-in-law, Donald Becker.

Services will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at Jump River Community Center in Jump River (Gilman). Friends and family may call on Wednesday from 1 p.m. until the time of service at 2:30 p.m., with Father Gerard Willger officiating, followed by military graveside service and burial at Mount Nebo Cemetery.

The Gilman Funeral Home assisted the family.
