Krause, David John "Louie" (21 JUN 1953 - 16 JUL 2016)

David John "Louie" Krause, 63, Edgar, died at his home on Saturday, July 16, 2016.

Louie was born on Father's Day, June 21, 1953 and was the first born son of John and Marie (Schueller) Krause.

He attended St. John's grade school and was a 1971 graduate of Edgar High School. As a young boy, he worked on the family farm with his dad and spent summers helping others make hay. While he was in high school, he worked full time at MidWhey Powder in Edgar.

Following graduation, Louie worked at Green Bay Packaging, did bridge construction and roofing and graded calves at Edgar Packing Plant. He also raised veal calves.

Louie leased Shimmel's Bar in Edgar for one year where he found a career his personality was perfect for. In 1980, at the age of 26, he purchased the Uekert Tavern in Edgar and Louie's Pub was established. At the time of his death he had just begun his 37th year in business. Over the years much fun was had and many great memories were made with Louie.

He is survived by his wife Sue (Kann) Krause, sisters Georgine (Gary) Hughes, Louise (Bob) Rajek, brothers Dan Krause, Virg (Shirley) Krause, Joe (Gail) Krause, Don (Caroline) Krause, Kelly Krause, Rich (Robin) Krause, brothers- and sisters-in-law Sandy (Gene) Schoenfuss, Scott (Kathy) Kann, Amy (Greg) Gust, 27 nieces and nephews, 25 great nieces and nephews, his godson Noah Gust and goddaughter, Jenny Krause.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Marie Krause and his mother- and father-in-law Gordon (Red) and Ethel Kann.

A celebration of Louie's life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 20 at St. John Lutheran Church, W1000 Highway N, Edgar. Pastor Gail Sowell will officiate. Friends may call from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service at the church.

Pall bearers will be Louie's brothers Dan, Virg, Joe, Donnie, Kelly and Rich Krause.

Everyone is invited to wear their favorite Louie's Pub attire to the celebration of Louie's life.
