Obituary for Michael Earl Lauer

Michael E Lauer, 68, of Eau Claire passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, August 27, 2019, at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Eau Claire from heart failure.

Michael was born November 24, 1950, in Chippewa Falls, the son of Earl and Bessie (Tichy) Lauer. He graduated from Regis High School in 1969.

In July 1973, Michael married Linda L (Carey). They were married for 40 years, had four children and were blessed with four grandchildren before Linda passed away of cancer August 2013. They shared a love of the Christmas season, hosting family and friends and were fortunate enough to travel.

In August 2018 Michael married Darlene Prissel. While they were only married a year, they had a grand adventure of traveling, cruising in the convertible, wintering in Florida and spending time with family and friends.

Many remember Michael from his days as Assistant General Manager and General Manager at the Randall’s Food stores in Eau Claire. In 1981 he purchased Lauer Insurance Agency from his father. After several decades of owning and growing the business, he decided to retire and pass the business to the next generation of Lauer agents. Michael had a larger-than-life, outgoing personality and loved nothing more than hosting friends, making sure everyone had plenty to eat and drink with much laughter and conversation.

Michael had a very personal faith in Jesus Christ and believed in the power of prayer, which influenced him to honor God in his life decisions. He lived as a man of integrity, with a large generous heart and infectious personality. We are rejoicing that he is home with his savior and that for him the real party is just getting started.

Preceded in death by his father, Earl and his first wife and mother of his children, Linda.

Michael is survived by his mother, Bessie Lauer of Eau Claire; his wife, Darlene Prissel; his four children Tricia (Benjamin)McCune of Eau Claire; Rebecca (John) Flaten of Altoona; Mary (Michael) Hanson of Elk Mound and David Lauer of Eau Claire, his two step-children Jesse (Stacy) Prissel of Largo, FL & Jammi Prissel of Eau Claire, six grandchildren Mollie, Madisen, Simeon, Andrew, Alexander, Lindi and step grandchildren, Mya, Larz, Payton and Avianna, as well as several other family members and friends.

Visitation will be on Tuesday, September 3rd at Stokes, Prock and Mundt Funeral Chapel, 535 S. Hillcrest Pkwy, Altoona from 3pm to 8pm.
Celebration of Life services will be held at 11am on Wednesday, September 4th at Bethesda Lutheran Church, 123 W. Hamilton Ave, Eau Claire with Pastor Kirk Militzer officiating, with a visitation at 10am.
