Michael P Euler 2

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Michael P. Euler, 79, of La Crosse passed away peacefully with his daughter and son-in-law by his side at Hope Stay in Onalaska on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

Michael was born December 13, 1941, in La Crosse to the late John Euler and the late Irene (Roth-Euler) Bell. He grew up in La Crosse and later met and married the love of his life, Judith Johnson, on October 30, 1965. They were married 15 years before her unexpected passing on December 8, 1980. From then on, his life was dedicated to raising his five children. Michael worked hard to provide for his family and we could not be more proud to call him our father. Anyone who knew him knows he would lend a hand to anyone in need. He enjoyed talking to anyone he came in contact with, nobody was a stranger.

Before his Parkinson’s progressed, Michael enjoyed hunting with his son David, going to lunch with his friends or breakfast with his work buddies. His favorite time was spent with family and his grand kids on Holidays and family get-togethers.

Michael was a life-long member of St. James the Less Catholic Church. He worked at La Crosse Dioceses for 41 years.

He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.

His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Went unspoken too.

He was there… A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.

One we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that we called dad.

He is survived by his children, Dianna (Ray) Wiatt, Debra Euler, David Euler and Harry Euler; granddaughters, Whitney Wiatt and Chelsey Euler; great-granddaughters, Niyha and Lenni; great-grandson “Little John”; sister, Rosalie (Wallace) Hanson of La Crosse; brother, Phillip (Jackie) Euler of Milwaukee, and sister, Marie Johnson of Milwaukee.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Judith; parents, John and Irene; son, Jeffrey Euler; infant son, Michael Jr.; sister, Linda Euler, and brothers, John Euler, Dwayne Roberts and Arlie Roberts.

The family would like to thank Chu and Chia, Nurse Linda and the staff at Hope Stay Assisted Living and Mayo Hospice for providing our father with such wonderful care. Also, a special thank you to Dr. Ed Malone of Mayo Clinic for the care and compassion he gave our father .
