Patrick I. Scheuer Obituary
Patrick I. Scheuer, age 79, of 239 Randolph St., Mishicot, entered into eternal life on Friday, Jan. 27, 2012, at his residence. Pat was born at home in Mishicot, on Sept. 14, 1932, the sixth of eight children born to the late Irvin P. and Gertrude Hoff Scheuer. He graduated from Holy Cross Catholic Grade School in 1946 and from Mishicot High School in 1950. Pat loved sports and excelled in basketball, setting many school scoring records and leading the 1949 Mishicot squad to the Peninsula Conference Championship under Coach Woody Bergner.

From 1952 to 1956, Pat served with pride in the United States Navy and was a lifetime member of the Mishicot VFW Kempen-Staudinger-Terens Post #7753. Pat was known for his conspicuous display of the American Flag and insisted that "Old Glory" be kept in top condition. On Oct. 5, 1957, he married the love of his life, Darlene "Dolly" Demsien, in Two Rivers, Wis. They would have celebrated 55 years of marriage in October of this year.

Pat worked for the Manitowoc Co. Highway Department for 25 years and he and Dolly owned and operated the Mishicot Variety Store for many years. Pat enjoyed sports, competition of all kinds, working on keeping his yard in immaculate condition, singing harmony, good conversation, and his beloved hometown of Mishicot. Pat also had a wonderful sense of humor and loved a good joke. He was a lifetime Packer fan, attended many games at the old "City Stadium" and was an "original" Lambeau Field season ticketholder. Most of all, he cherished his family and lived for the time he spent with his seven treasured grandchildren. Lastly, there was no "quit" in him.

He is survived by his loving wife, Dolly; two sons and daughters-in-law, Rod and Linda Scheuer, Mishicot; Marty Sr. and Mary Scheuer, Tisch Mills; by his daughter-in-law and devoted friend, Robin Scheuer Peters, rural Two Rivers; his grandchildren, Kyle, Carisa (Mike) Keller, Casey, Katrina, Marty Jr., Max, and Mick Scheuer; one brother, Michael Scheuer, Mishicot; two sisters, Joan (Lloyd) Brouchoud, Mishicot; and Jeanette Hansen, Two Rivers. He is further survived by his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Mary Agnes Scheuer, Mishicot; Vernon Pautz, Mishicot; the Reverend Paul (Sandra) Soukup, Madision; nieces, nephews and by many special friends and neighbors.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by two brothers, Francis "Frank" Scheuer, John P. Scheuer; two sisters, Maxine Juckem, Katherine "Katy" Pautz; two brothers-in-law, Al Hansen and Ed Juckem; and by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ned and Violet Demsien.

Mass of Chrisitan Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012, at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Mishicot, with the Reverend John Becker officiating, with burial in the Holy Cross Parish Cemetery. Relatives and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday at the Lambert-Eckert Funeral Home of Mishicot. Visitation will continue after 10 a.m. on Tuesday at Holy Cross Catholic Church, until the time of service at 11 a.m., followed by Military Rites accorded by the Mishicot VFW Kempen-Staudinger-Terens Post # 7753.

Thanks Pop, for the uncounted sacrifices you made and for the selfless love you gave us. You showed us how to be good and loving fathers by your daily example. You are forever in our hearts.

A heartfelt thank you to Aunt Mick and to the good Nuns of Holy Cross Parish, especially Sisters Pat and Mack, who did so much to keep our family together during Pat's childhood years. God bless and keep you.

He has fought the good fight, he has finished the course, he has kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4: 6-8.

2 Corinthians 15: v. 57 But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
